WUERFEL PARK, MI -- SUNDAY, JULY 3RD – Sunday is our Annual WELCOME HOME 4th OF JULY Celebration.  It’s a night that you will not want to miss. We will be inviting all members of our Military Armed Forces to come down onto the field before the game. We will take time to recognize, honor and thank our veterans and active military members for their sacrifice and service on this Independence Day. It is a moving tribute to our heroes and it allows our players and fans an opportunity to say thank you to those who have fought for us around the world. We recommend fans arrive early so they do not miss the pregame ceremony on the field.  The night will feature patriotic music throughout the game and after the game there will be treated to a spectacular Fourth of July fireworks show! The first 250 fans through the gates will receive patriotic USA flag pins. 

The Blue Angels crew will be here to help thank our veterans and sign autographs!  

There will be a Silent Auction of the players patriotic jerseys and a special FANTASTIC Fireworks Display will end the evening.

FANS PLEASE NOTE:  This is not a normal Sunday game.  The gates will open at 5:00pm with the game against the Southern Illinois Miners starting at 7:05pm. 


SATURDAY, JULY 2ND-- Traverse City native Drew Hale will be performing LIVE in the Short's Biergarten from 5:00pm to 6:30pm. 

2015 National Cherry Queen Danielle Bott and her 2016 Court will be here to throw out the first pitch and sign autographs during the game. 

It is a Short's Tap Takeover Saturday, featuring awesome brews from Short's Brewing Company. We will continue the fun with "Freedom of '78", a Guava IPA, which will join the already-awesome lineup of Short's and Starcut Ciders now available in the new Short's Biergarten.
