Grizzlies Announce 2017 Schedule
Gastonia, NC – The Gastonia Grizzlies announced today the release of their 2017 schedule for their 16th Anniversary season. Just like last year, the Grizzlies have an alternating week by week schedule and feature doubleheaders on Tuesday games.
After the first week of the season, the schedule will rotate with a home doubleheader on Tuesday followed by a home game on Friday night. The following week will feature home games on Thursday night and Saturday night.
The only exception is three Monday games throughout the season that will be Bark in the Park Mondays. Monday games are June 12th vs. Lexington County, July 24th vs. Martinsville and August 7th vs. HPThomasville. Also, the Grizzlies will host the popular Super Splash Day game on Wednesday, June 28th with a noon start.
Other than the one special date, the Grizzlies will not be home any other Sundays or Wednesdays during the 2017 season. All games will start at 7:05, except the Tuesdays doubleheaders that will start at 6:00PM, the June 28th Super Splash game that will start at noon.
General Manager, David McDonald, had the following comments, “This is going to be YUUUUGE.”
The season opener will be Saturday, May 27th against the Savannah franchise. The Savannah team is owned by Grizzlies Owners Jesse & Emily Cole.
The Grizzlies first Fireworks game of the year is set for Saturday, June 3rd against The Savannah Bananas. Last year this game sold out a month in advance and will most likely only be available through Grizzlies memberships for this year.
