Your Bees will be back tomorrow for a home stand that stretches from one Tuesday to the next.
It’s the start of our 16-game home schedule for the final month of the season.
We welcome the Fort Wayne Wizards for the first four games, hosting the San Diego affiliate through Friday. The Wizards are coached by former Cub Doug Dascenzo.
On Saturday, the Dayton Dragons roll into town for the second half of this home stand. The Cincinnati affiliate won the Midwest League’s eastern division in the first half, but is playing around .500 in the second half following the promotions of several of their top prospects.
We have a few special promotions coming up:
