Bart Kaufman Field opens for 2019 on Tuesday. First Pitch 3pm. The promotional dates for the new season now appear on IUHoosiers.com.
Some highlights include St Patrick’s day sunglasses give away on Sunday March 17th, Turn Back the Clock Night on Wednesday March 27th, Chick Fill A ‘Throw more K’s’ T shirt give away on Wednesday April 10th, Fireworks Night on Friday April 27th, Baseball Card give away day on Saturday April 28th, IU Mini Bat night on Thursday May 16th and Senior Poster give away day on Saturday May 18th.
Some things of note, it appears ‘Kids Run the Bases’ after the game will only be on Sundays now, not all games. This is surprising because that was a real favorite of families bringing children to the games. ‘Kids Eat Free’ nights are returning and will be Tuesday nights (children under 12 receive food and drink vouchers). Chick Fill A K’s returns with 9 being the number for an entree and 12 for a meal. Buffa Louie’s will once again sponsor the first hit of the game contest. ‘Bark in the Park’ also returns for two games. If we hear of any additions to the promotional schedule we will let you know.
