January 28, 2009 - LOVES PARK, Ill. – Baseball fans can look forward to postgame fireworks, dollar-beer nights and premium giveaway items this summer.

The Rockford RiverHawks announced their 2009 promotional calendar Wednesday and staples such as the FatWallet.com Friday Night Fireworks series and Miller Lite Dollar Beer Night will be joined by a new bobblehead-doll series, the “Blue Out” T-shirt night and the return of the Father’s Day father-son catch.

The home opener at Road Ranger Stadium is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. May 26, when the RiverHawks host the Midwest Sliders of Ypsilanti. Fans will be treated to fireworks following the game.

Fireworks are scheduled for every Friday home game, the July 2 game and the home finale on Sept. 6.

Weekend starting times have been moved up. Saturday games are scheduled for 6:05 p.m. and Sunday games for 4:05 p.m. Weeknight start times remain 7:05 p.m.

Each Saturday home game features a premium giveaway item for early arrivals. This year’s bobblehead series features Andre Dawson (May 30), Mark Grace (July 18) and Sammy Sosa (Aug. 29).

On June 21, the RiverHawks celebrate Father’s Day with a Father/Son Catch following the game. Participants will receive a RiverHawks baseball, sponsored by OSF St. Anthony’s.

The “Blue Out” night, scheduled for Aug. 15 and sponsored by Rockford Health Systems and Rock Valley College, takes a college-basketball staple – an arena full of fans wearing team colors – and applies it to Road Ranger Stadium. The first 3,000 fans in the gates will receive a blue RiverHawks T-shirt.

New promotions were announced for Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Tuesdays are 2-for-1 Tuesdays, when tickets are available at a buy-one, get-one-free rate.
