There’s nothing like a summer night at BB&T Ballpark for you and your family. If you’re a Winston-Salem Dash fan, you know the fun of a game, but in case you’ve never been, you need to know what you have been missing!
The Dash is all about families and giving mom, dad and the kids the best time each and every game. Joe Weil, Dash Broadcast and Media Relations Manager, believes this year’s games have so much in store for families, from great games to good food, fireworks, and special events.
“Everyone loves fireworks. Every Friday night, we will have a spectacular fireworks show after the game. Fireworks will also follow our Fourth of July game. After our games on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, kids get to run the bases, powered by New Balance of Winston-Salem.”
Weil also notes that families have a special day for them with the team’s Family Sundays, sponsored by Lowes Foods, with free popcorn for kids. Meanwhile, a few players will sign autographs before each Sunday home game.
The team also has a little excitement to share with fans, too!
The Dash’s new manager this season is three-time MLB All-Star Omar Vizquel. He played for 24 seasons in the Majors and most recently was the first base coach for the Detroit Tigers.
The Dash had 12 out of the top 30 White Sox prospects, per MLB.com, on the team at some point last year, giving fans a great chance to see players who could be on their way to the Majors. This year will likely bring big-name prospects as well, including former Wake Forest University player, Gavin Sheets.
The Dash also offers a great place for a birthday party. With group seating available, a picnic terrace and reserved seating for birthday parties of 10 or more, party food, dessert, Dash hats and recognition on the big board at the park, there’s no better place to celebrate than BB&T Ballpark.
On top of that, the Dash will hold three sessions, June 13-15, July 24-27 and August 6-8, of their Youth Baseball Academy. “This is a great way for kids to get instruction from our coaches and players to improve their own skills. Our Youth Baseball Academy package also includes Dash tickets, a t-shirt, lunch each day and the best baseball instruction you will find,” said Weil.
“We appreciate the support of the community and love to have the support of our local schools. Our Dash MVP Education Program gives students an incentive to excel in their academics and attend a couple of our day games. The ballpark comes alive with the students and teachers in the stands,” Weil commented.
Whether you want a good place for a date night, a fun time for your family or a great night out for your company, the Winston- Salem Dash has something for everyone!
