Week of July 2nd - July 8th

It's that time of year again when the tourists pack downtown Traverse City for Cherry Fest, but luckily for us, this also means a week filled with baseball and the 4th of July! The Beach Bums are home for six consecutive games beginning with the Southern Illinois Miners on Tuesday and wrapping up against the Gateway Grizzlies on Sunday!

Tuesday, July 3rd: Tonight we have a rare, one time only, Tuesday home game in lieu of having a double header on Wednesday. The Beach Bums will begin a three game series against the Southern Illinois Miners. Gates open at 6:00pm for a start time of 7:05pm. Jordan Desguin will take the mound as the starting pitcher. So come out to Wuerfel Park and join us for the first of six home games! 

Wednesday, July 4th: We can not contain our excitement anymore as the day is finally here! Join us for our most popular, and biggest game of the season, the 4th of July Welcome Home Celebration! On this night we emphasize the act of honoring those who have fought, and are still fighting for our freedom, and we take this opportunity to welcome our true heroes home. A special pregame ceremony where we invite all military personnel down on to the field in recognition of their service, will begin at 6:30pm so please plan to arrive early! Gates will open at 5:00pm with first pitch scheduled to occur after the conclusion of the pregame ceremony.

The Traverse City Exchange club will be handing out miniature American flags to all of the fans in attendance. All military will be given a badge of honor designating them as a man or woman who is serving or has served this country; So as you enjoy the game, if you see these men and women, we ask that you too will take a moment to thank them for their service.

This is an extremely powerful game to attend and we hope you will join us in celebration. Stick around after the game as the night will finish off with a spectacular fireworks show, right here at Wuerfel Park!

Thursday, July 5th: It's Thrifty Thursday, and we think that's pretty nifty! Take advantage of our two deals to save a little extra money. 

Silver Slugger deal: Anyone ages 60 yrs+ can purchase a chairback ticket for half price - that's just $5 a ticket!

Meal Deal: Visit concessions and purchase a hot dog, chips, and a soda for only $5! This deal is available to all, isn't that a steal!

So come out to Wuerfel Park, treat the whole family to dinner and watch as the Beach Bums finish out the series against the Southern Illinois Miners. Gates open at 6:00pm for a first pitch start time of 7:05pm. Make sure to get here early for your chance to sign up to participate in our on-field, between inning contests!

Friday, July 6th: Extra, extra, read all about it! Tonight is the first official Fantastic Fireworks Friday here at Wuerfel Park! We know many of you have been waiting for this all season, but the wait is finally over. Join us at 7:05pm tonight as the Bums begin a three game series against the Gateway Grizzlies. Tonight marks the first time in the 2018 season that the two teams will face off in a battle of Bears, so you won't want to miss the action. Gates open at 6:00pm -- first pitch is set for 7:05pm. The Fantastic Fireworks show will begin shortly after the conclusion of the game.

Saturday, July 7th: We're not done yet... The Bums take on the Gateway Grizzlies in game two of the series for this Salute to Soldiers and 1st Responders Saturday game!

This is just a small token of appreciation and gratitude that we here at Wuerfel Park want to offer to those who serve this country. Gates open at 6:00pm for a start time of 7:05pm.

Sunday, July 8th: Last but most certainly not least, we conclude this 6 day home stand with Family FUNday Sunday!
