« Back
April 12, 2006 - ROCKFORD, Ill. – Season-ticket buyers will be getting perks even before the Rockford RiverHawks open the 2006 season at their new stadium.

The RiverHawks today announced their annual season-ticket holders’ party and their complete spring schedule. The RiverHawks will play a total of three exhibition games – all at home – over two mid-May dates.

The general public will have to wait until Opening Day, May 31, to see RiverHawks Stadium from the inside. Season-ticket holders will get a couple of sneak peaks, and enjoy a free dinner to boot.

The RiverHawks will play the Joliet Jackhammers of the Northern League in an interleague exhibition game at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 14. They then host fellow Frontier League member Windy City in a doubleheader scheduled for 4 p.m. Thursday, May 18.

At 6 p.m. May 18, approximately between games of the Windy City doubleheader, the RiverHawks will treat their season-ticket holders to the annual, exclusive season-ticket holders picnic, catered by Toni’s of Winnebago.

“Individual tickets for regular-season games are not yet available, so the only way fans can guarantee a seat for the May 31 opener is by buying some season tickets,” general manager Josh Olerud said.

In addition, season-ticket buyers will be first in line to meet former Chicago Cub Bill Madlock and other guests at Fan Fest, scheduled for noon-5 p.m. Sunday, May 7 at JD’s Sports Bar and Grill.

Season tickets are available beginning at $456. Call the team box office at (815) 964-BALL for details. Individual tickets for exhibition games will not be sold.
