Schedule Change -- Saturday Night Doubleheader
TRAVERSE CITY, MI -- Due to a forecast of continual rain in Northern Michigan, the Traverse City Beach Bums/River City Rascals game that was scheduled for tonight has been postponed. The two teams will play a doubleheader Saturday evening beginning at 6:05pm with the main gates opening for fans at 5pm. A group of excellent Beach Bums fans pictured in a John l. Russell file photo.
Right handed pitcher Nolan Shaffer will make his Beach Bums debut on the mound against Sean Toler (0-1, 7.88) for River City. Both games will be seven inning contests.
Saturday night will be Hagerty Insurance Classic Car Night at the ballpark. “Nice wheels” will soon mean more to baseball fans than the term used to describe a speedy base runner. Two American classics, baseball and automobiles, will team up for Collector Car Night on Saturday, June 11 at Wuerfel Park. The event, sponsored by Hagerty Collector Car Insurance, will be held in conjunction with the Traverse City Beach Bums’ game against the River City Rascals. Those who bring their pre-1982 collector cars to the ballpark for display will receive two free tickets to that night’s game. The first 60 "Classic Car" drivers to arrive at the ballpark will have their cars displayed in the grassy area past the sidewalk behind the outfield wall. They must remain on display until the end of the game. For more information or tickets, call 943-0100 or visit www.tcbeachbums.com.
The FANtastic Fireworks scheduled for postgame Friday, June 10th have also been postponed and will be rescheduled for later in the season. Please check back for more information.
