Duda Smash Bobblehead

Tuesday brings Super Hero Night to MCU Park. In honor of Super Hero Night, the team will be giving out bobbleheads of former Brooklyn Cyclones 1B Lucas Duda.

The bobblehead depicts Duda batting in a jersey that has jagged edges like the Hulk. The base of the bobblehead says SMASH! on it.

There will also be a pre-game cosplay parade on the field, featuring fans in different customes.

Only the 1st 2,000 fans will get these bobbleheads, so be in line early. The gates of MCU Park will open at 5:15 PM for Season Ticket Holders and 5:30 PM for everyone else.

Following the game will be another edition of Tuesday Night Fireworks.

Wednesday Night brings back $10 Ticket Night to MCU Park, where all seats are $10, in advanced & on gameday.

It will also be Italian Heritage Night. However, the team will not be wearing any special hats or jerseys, as they have used up the 6 allotment of alternate designs teams are permitted per season.

August25JerseyAs the team wraps up the series against the Scrappers, Thursday brings the final Jersday Thursday of the 2016 season, and possibly the last ever, as the team might move away from it.

The team will be giving out Ugly Holiday Sweater jerseys to the 1st 2,500 fans who enter MCU Park on Thursday. This will bring the Jersday Thursday count up to 44** since the team began giving out jerseys during the 2010 season.

The team will be celebrating Christmas in August, meaning that they will be playing Christmas music all night long. Expect there to be Beach Bums in Christmas gear, and possibly “Sandy Claus.”

The gates of MCU Park will open at 5:15 PM for Season Ticket Holders and 5:30 PM for everyone else.

** This count includes night’s when the team gave out two different designs & Jersday Wednesday. It excludes the Jersey? Sure! promotion, which was NOT part of the Jersday Thursday marketing. Also excludes all giveaway jerseys from 2001-2009, Season Ticket Holder Jerseys, 5K Walk / Run Jerseys, & jerseys available as special add-on for ticket package.
