08/19/2005 11:14 AM - The Kansas City T-Bones welcome the Gary SouthShore RailCats for a four-game series to close out the longest homestand of the season. It's a series with some playoff implications, as the T-Bones are just 1 1/2 games back of Gary in the Northern League wild card race with seventeen games left to play.
The series is going to be jam-packed with good baseball, as the T-Bones have won their last three and face the pesky RailCats, who play some of the best fundamental baseball around. It's also going to be jam-packed with fun!
Friday night is the Salute to the Negro Leagues, presented by Yellow Book. As well, it's Free Cash Friday presented by the Legends Shopping Center! Prior to the game, skydivers will drop onto the field, presented by Gomez Concessions. During the game, a cavalcade of stars, including Buck O'Neil, Joe Azcue, Diego Segui, Marty Pattin, Al Fitzmorris and John Wathan, will be present for an autograph session. As well, the T-Bones will be wearing replica Kansas City Monarch jerseys, which will be auctioned off after the game.
Saturday night is the crazy mascot act BirdZerk! presented by American Century Investments. If you've never seen these crazy birds before - you won't want to miss this! It's also Bat Night, presented by Toyota, and fireworks after the game, presented by Metro Sports and Roger Smith and Sons Toyota.
Sunday is a 5:05 pm game, and it's our Salute to Wilt Chamberlain. Seven-footers are admitted free, and as always on Sundays, seniors will receive $1 off any ticket, presented by Humana. As well, it's Kids Run the Bases after the game presented by Bob Evans. Every kid to run the bases will receive a Bob Evans Kids Pack including a $5 certificate for food at Bob Evans!
