A New Record! Thank you fans!
Saturday July 9th marked the 2011 Time Warner Cable Customer Appreciation Night at “The Joe” . . . and for the second consecutive season, this promotion produced a new ValleyCats record for single game attendance.
7,119 fans enjoyed a beautiful night at the ballpark as the ‘Cats dropped a 2-0 pitchers duel to the Aberdeen Ironbirds. The pregame festivities featured a team poster giveaway at the gate with the opportunity to have it autographed as part of the annual Photo Day promotion.
Fans were also invited onto the field to play catch prior to the game and then again for kids to run the bases following the final out.
Time Warner customers were treated to a special appearance and national anthem performance by Siobhan Magnus, American Idol Finalist from Season 9. Siobhan stuck around after the anthem to sign autographs as part of the TWC entertainment in the Pavilion.
The Time Warner Cable Picnic Pavilion display was a popular destination and included the Storm Chaser from YNN, 3D TV, ESPN Trivia, a Whole House DVR set-up, and the opportunity for fans to record their own sports cast.
Special thanks to newlyweds George and Loretta Hackney for making the ValleyCats part of your special day. Loretta and George were married earlier on Saturday but continued their celebration with friends and family at “The Joe.” Their ceremonial first pitch was a great way to start the evening.
Thank you to Time Warner Cable for your support in this promotion and for all those who came out to be a part of this record setting crowd.
Tonight is Sunday Funday at “The Joe” presented by MVP HealthCare. The theme for game 2 against the Ironbirds will be Game Show Night with seats still available.
