June 16, 2011 - LOVES PARK, Ill. – The Rockford RiverHawks expect their one millionth fan in franchise history during this week’s three-game series against the Lake Erie Crushers beginning on Thursday, June 16.

The lucky one millionth fan receives two free airlines tickets, courtesy of the Chicago Rockford International Airport. The tickets are good to any destination the Chicago Rockford International Airport services.

The RiverHawks estimate the one millionth fan will pass through the gates of Road Ranger Stadium Friday. Gates open at 6:05 p.m. Friday and first pitch against Lake Erie is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
