TRAVERSE CITY, MI -- The Beach Bums hit the road tomorrow for a three game away series before returning back to Traverse City for a weekend home stand. Join us for all of the fun that we have planned!

Early tomorrow morning the team will make their way to Marion, IL, to take on the Southern Illinois Miners in a three game stand, over two nights. They'll start the series off with a double header on Wednesday night beginning at 6:30pm (EDT). John Havird is slated to take the mound for the Beach Bums in game one, followed by Reinaldo Lopez in game two. On Thursday night the Bums will complete the series against Southern Illinois, beginning at 8:05pm. Can't make it to Marion to cheer on the team? Tune in to the live stream at and listen from anywhere in the world!

Then, join us on Friday night as the team returns to Wuerfel Park for a three game, weekend home stand against the Normal Cornbelters.

Friday's game is DTE Energy night. DTE Energy will be giving away tote bags to the first 100 fans through the gates so make sure to arrive early! And don't forget, tonight is also a Fantastic Firework Friday here at the ballpark so come for the game and stick around afterwards for a firework display like you've never seen before. This is our second to last Firework Friday so you won't want to miss it! Gates open at 6:00pm for a first pitch start time of 7:05. Fireworks will begin shortly after the conclusion of the game.

Saturday, the Bums play game 2 of 3 against the Cornbelters, for this Salute to Soldiers and 1st Responders Saturday game. All military and 1st responders will receive chairback tickets for half price. That's just $5! This is just a small token of appreciation and gratitude that we here at Wuerfel Park want to offer to those who serve or have served this country. Gates open at 6:00pm -- first pitch is set for 7:05.

And to finish out the weekend, we would like to invite you to Suntan and Sunburn's 13th Birthday Bash at the stadium! Among their many mascot friends who will be in attendance at the party, the bears want ALL OF YOU, their bestest friends, to be there too! A fun filled day of laughter, games, and baseball is all these crazy bears want for their birthday. Help us celebrate as they officially enter their teen years and we watch as our little bears continue to grow up! :) And let's not forget, it is also Family FUNday Sunday so Suntan and Sunburn would like to share a special party gift with their guests -

- Kids ages 5-12 years old will have the chance to run the bases with the bears after the end of the game


- Stick around for autographs from all your favorite Beach Bums!

Gates open at 4:00pm for a first pitch of 5:05. Make sure to arrive early for your chance to participate in our on-field, between inning competitions!
