06/01/2006 - The Casper's Rockies begin home play June 20th with a T-Shirt night as we enjoy another season of professional baseball at Mike Lansing Field.

Manager P.J. Carey returns with his previous staff with the exception of a new pitching coach. Former Colorado Rockies pitcher Mark Thompson will fill that position for the 2006 season. In fact, P.J. will be honored with his own night. August 20th will be P.J. night with a mattress giveaway.

The Rockies offer affordable family fun with an array of promotional events and in-game entertainment. Every Friday home game is a Fireworks games...a record 6 games this season. Those dates are June 23rd, July 7th and 21st, August 4th and 18th and Sept. 1st.

There will even be a Ball Park Wedding this season for one lucky couple. Those wishing to enter should write 200 words telling "Why they want to have a Ball Park Wedding" and send to the address below.

Another new opportunity is "Guaranteed Wednesday Wins!". If you attend a Wednesday night game and the team doesn't win, you get a free ticket for another game.

Other special events include: The return of the Famous (San Diego) Chicken on Aug. 1st, Mini-Bat night on July 22nd, Team Baseball Card Sets on Aug. 18th and much more!

Danny Tetzlaff is in his second season as General Manager and his fifth with the team. Danny and his staff work hard to make both the game and the time spent in the park fun for all. "You don't have to be a big baseball fan to enjoy our total game experience. Just come out once and you'll want to come back again and again," shares Danny.

All weekday and Saturday games start at 7:05pm and Sunday games begin at 4:05pm. Reserved seats are $9 or $8 depending on location while general admission tickets are $7.50, $6.50 for Seniors and Children. A popular way to buy tickets is the Bonus Book. For only $65.00 you get 10 general admission tickets good for any home game except Aug. 1st . New this year are "Mini Plans" -- 6 ticket packs with different designated schedules such as the Fireworks pack or the "Chicken" Pack (includes the San Diego Chicken game). Packages are also available for corporate and family picnics as well as birthday parties.
