Friday, April 8, Corvallis, Ore. – Two long-standing traditional Fireworks Nights highlight the promotional schedule unveiled today by the Corvallis Knights for their 15th season as the Hometown Team at Goss Stadium.
The stars of the promotional show are rites of summer in Corvallis. The pyrotechnics start on July 3, when the Knights host the Port Angeles Lefties in the annual Oregon State Credit Union Fireworks Night. The regular-season ends with a bang with the August 6 Pioneer Connect and Samaritan Health Services Fireworks Night game against the Ridgefield Raptors.
Crowds of 3,000 or more are commonplace at both games, so fans are encouraged to order their tickets early so they’re not left out.
Another marquee attraction is the July 22 Cap Giveaway Night, presented by Alyrica Networks. The first 750 fans will receive an adjustable Knights cap free of charge prior to the game against the Portland Pickles.
“Everyone can find something special at the ballpark this summer,” Knights Director of Operations Derek Buchheit said. “We will make every night fun and full of surprises.”
“We are concentrating on the promotions our fans have told us they enjoy the most, such as fireworks and giveaways.”
Many of the 30 home dates have some sort of promotional tie-in, from giveaways of baseball-related paraphernalia to special reduced beverage prices on certain nights, or a combination of the aforementioned.
The fun starts on opening night, June 17 against the Yakima Valley Pippins in a rematch of the 2021 West Coast League Championship Series. The first 1,000 fans will receive a Knights Magnet Schedule, courtesy of Jessica Smith, Broker at Town & Country Realty.
Beverage specials feature 2 Towns Tuesdays (June 21, July 5, July 19, July 26, August 2); Nocking Point Wine Wednesdays (June 22, June 29, July 20, August 3) and Block 15 Thursdays (June 23, July 7, July 21, July 28, August 4).
