The smell of the fresh cut grass. The meticulously dragged dirt. Hot dogs and cold drinks.

Ahhhhh yes, baseball season is right around the corner in the Panhandle.

While Major League Baseball may be on a lockout still, it doesn't apply to Minor League Baseball...and that means our beloved Soddies will be back in action before you know it!

One of the most anticipated things released all year is the promotional schedule for the games. What are the giveaways and special deals? Well, today they've dropped it on us and I just had to share it with you.

So pull out your calendars and start marking them up! Here's everything you need to know for this season.

The Friday fireworks are back with 19 scheduled fireworks shows, the first one being April 8th. There will be 3 straight nights of fireworks wrapped around the Soddies July 1-3 homestand.

This season will feature TWO Bark in the Park nights where you can bring your furry friend to the games. Sorry other animals, this one is only for the dogs.

There are a myriad of theme nights planned as well, from Cinco De Mayo celebrations to Marvel Superhero nights.

$2 Tuesdays are back for 11 total dates. There will be a limited amount of $2 tickets available for these games, so you'll have to act quick to take advantage of those. Weiner Wednesday is around for 11 dates as well where you can snag hot dogs for $1 a piece. My personal favorite, Thirsty Thursday returns to the calendar where you can take advantage of discounted beers and soft drinks. The Hometown Heroes program will offer 50% off tickets for Military and First Responders with a total of 12 dates to take advantage of.
