2021 gives us an entirely different ballpark experience
The Wilmington Blue Rocks return to action on Tuesday, May 4th but with a few noticeable changes. 2021 welcomes not only Joe Biden to DC but our Wilmington Blue Rocks as they say au revoir to Kansas City and now affiliate with the Washington Nationals and their NATitude. (Couldn't help it. Nerd jokes.) New minor league reorganization also means a whole new set of High A East opponents! Plus, with Frawley Stadium operating at 25% capacity due to COVID restrictions, you can rest assured it’ll be a safe return to the ballpark (even if "The Wave" is gonna seem a little weird these days).
Of course any time at Frawley Stadium is great, but we’ve rounded up our favorite promos and giveaways to help you navigate the Awesome awaiting this season on the Wilmington Riverfront.
Opening Night & Star Wars Day | May 4 & 5
May the Force be with Frawley Stadium on Opening Night Tuesday, May 4th and Wednesday, May 5 as the Blue Rocks take on the Aberdeen IronBirds.The first 500 fans through the door each night get an Awesome R2-D2 beanie thanks to Coca-Cola. Dress up as your favorite Jedi (or Sith, we’re not judging) and root for our Wilmington boys in blue!
Championship Pennant Giveaway | May 11 & 12
The first 500 fans through the door to cheer against the Jersey Shore BlueClaws snag a replica of the Blue Rocks’ 2019 Championship Pennant! Much like the Champions of WhyFly, the Wilmington Blue Rocks really impressed us with their 2019 win but unfortunately, COVID really changed the game last year and it was tough to celebrate...let’s get out there and show our Blue Rock pride all season long with this Awesome giveaway!
90’s Night | May 14
Uh, 90’s? Awesome...That is all.
Tyler Hill Championship Bobble Arm Giveaway | May 15 & 16
Bobble...Arm? That’s right. Takes a lot of neck strength to hold that Mills Cup up, so since the head is occupied the arm will Fly free. Almost feels criminal to get a free bobble head with the super affordable ticket pricing!
Youth T-Shirt Giveaway | June 5 & 6
Though we haven’t seen any specific details on this yet, their TShirt giveaways are always worth the early arrival...on Sunday, June 6th, the Kids Run the Bases after the game too!
Rock ‘em Bobblehead Giveaway | June 19 & 20
This special TWO-PIECE Rock 'em and Stalk 'em bobblehead set is the first of its kind! Snag Rocky first and grab your tickets to the Celery release (July 17 & 18). Sunday, they’re also celebrating Rocky’s birthday AND it’s Father’s Day so the timing couldn’t possibly be more Awesome.
Stalk ‘em Bobble Giveaway | July 17 & 18
We love Mr. Celery’s Shenanigans, they’re the exact kind of Shenanigans of which we approve...Get to the stadium early on these days to bring the silliness of the stalk home with you! On Sunday, July 18th, join in the Celerybration honoring the man, the myth, the vegetable himself.
2021 Team Card Set Giveaway & The Office Nights | August 3 & 4
If you were as sad as we were when The Office was removed from Netflix then a trip to the ballpark may put you in a better mood than Kevin at second dinner. Rumor has it there’s a special ticket package available including a giveaway from The Office (and by rumor we mean press release, so that’s pretty legit).
Commemorative Baseball Giveaway Tribute to Judy Johnson & the Negro League | August 28 & 29
Pay tribute to the legends of Negro League baseball and snag a sweet commemorative ball if you’re on of the first 500 to make it to the celebration!
Back to School Night | September 7 & 8
