August 8, 2008 - LOVES PARK, Ill. – The Rockford RiverHawks open their next-to-last homestand of the year on Friday with six games featuring fireworks, a Ron Santo bobblehead, youth jerseys and dollar beers.

The RiverHawks play a 6:05 p.m. doubleheader against the Midwest Sliders on Friday. Enjoy another Fat Wallet.com fireworks spectacular in between the two seven-inning games. It's also Rasmussen College Night at the ballpark.

Saturday’s game against the Midwest Sliders is your last chance to get a Chicago Cubs “Hall Of Fame” Bobblehead. The fifth and final bobblehead featuring Ron Santo will be given away at the gate to the first 1,000 fans. The bobblehead of former Chicago Cub Ron Santo is brought to you by Dr. Pepper, BOB FM and WIFR. These bobbleheads go fast, so get to Road Ranger Stadium early. Game time is 7:05pm, gates open at 5:30.

On Sunday, the RiverHawks finish their series with the Midwest Sliders at 6:05pm. A Sunday at Road Ranger Stadium means another K-Mart, B103 & WREX Family Fun Night, so kids ages 14 and under can stay after the game to run the bases. Magnets featuring everyone’s favorite mascot Rocko will also be given away at the gate. Gates open at 5pm.

The homestand continues with 7:05 p.m. games against Southern Illinois on Tuesday through Thursday. The Saturn of Rockford Youth Clinic starts at 5 p.m. Tuesday. Wednesday is an Applebee’s/New Vision Laser Center Wrapped Up In Reading Night. Thursday is Miller Lite/104.9 – the X Dollar Beer Night.
