WALLA WALLA, Wash. – Theme Nights are back this season, families can feast on select concessions items for $1 on Sundays courtesy of NAPA Auto Parts, Kids are just $1 on Sundays and Mondays thanks to Community Bank, and Tuesday is all about $2 bills at Borleske Stadium. With less than 80 days until the start of the Sweets 2015 season of West Coast League baseball, presented by Columbia REA, the team has announced their full promotional calendar for the upcoming season.
The Sweets summer will start with a bang Friday, June 5, when Opening Day presented by Edward Jones is capped by a night sky full of post-game fireworks. Also a part of the 7:05 p.m. home opener against the Medford Rogues is a magnet schedule giveaway presented by Edward Jones, Union-Bulletin, and CAPPS Broadcast Group.
The Sweets have packed the promotional schedule this season with plenty of giveaway nights and fireworks shows on select nights. These top nights include team poster giveaway on Friday, June 19, baseball cap giveaway on Thursday, July 2 presented by Holiday Inn Express, Tough Enough to Wear Pink t-shirt giveaway on Friday, July 17 presented by Providence St. Mary, and Sweet Lou bobble head giveaway on Sunday, August 9 presented by Columbia REA.
“With opening day just a little over two months away, the front office and fans are gearing up for another season of Sweets baseball,” said Sweets president Zachary Fraser, “We’ve worked hard this year to bring back a few of the top promotions that we’ve all come to love, as well as great new additions that will truly enhance the fan experience.”

Fan-favorite $2 Tuesday is back, where fans can receive $2 reserved tickets, $2 Lil’ Lou hot dogs, $2 32 oz fountain sodas, and $2 Rolling Rocks all game long (alcohol through the 7th inning).
