‘Swing for your Seats’ & Fireflies Fan Fest Highlight the Weekend at Spirit Communications Park

By: Fireflies

COLUMBIA, S.C. (Fireflies) — On Saturday, April 2, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Fireflies will give fans a chance to club the first home run in Spirit Communications Park history – and win a free ticket package in the process. Once a participant places a 25% deposit on season tickets or another ticket package – or adds seats to their current plan – they will have an opportunity to bat from home plate. If the participant hits a home run, he or she will receive their ticket package that year for free, up to $10,000.

Ticket packages include full season (70 games), half season (35 games), quarter season (17 games) and mini season (12 games) options. The non-refundable deposit will be 25% of the ticket package fans intend to purchase.

And the Fireflies are also inviting the community to enjoy a fun and free afternoon at Spirit Communications Park for Fireflies Fan Fest on Sunday, April 3, from 1-5 p.m.

Fans will have their first chance to meet the 2016 Fireflies and grab autographs from players on the main concourse starting at 4 p.m. All in attendance are welcome to watch the team’s first official workout prior to the autograph session.

Tours of the brand new Spirit Communications Park – including the 7,000 square-foot club level lounge – will be offered so fans can check out the new ballpark before the home opener on April 14.

Bring your appetite as well – the first 2,000 fans through the gates will receive a free hot dog, chips and drink.

Fans will also have a chance to sit in and preview any seats around the ballpark. The Fireflies Ticket Office will be open and both Opening Night tickets and season-ticket packages will be available for purchase. Single-game tickets for Opening Night and for all Fireflies home games on the Bojangles’ Berm are just $5 and prime seats between the dugouts – the Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union All-Star seats – are only $10. All seating is subject to availability.

The Mason Jar – the official team shop of the Columbia Fireflies – will be open on the concourse for fans who wish to purchase their team gear before Opening Night.

Additionally, kids can bounce and play for free in the State Credit Union Kids Zone.
