Nightly Recap: Monday, August 19th

The ‘Cats were home on Monday for the first time in a week as they opened a quick two-game homestand against the Vermont Lake Monsters. The first 1,500 fans through the gates received a bobblehead of a CBS 6 News Anchor Greg Floyd, voted on by the fans during the Media Bobblehead Bracket Buster Tournament in March. Floyd represented Hannah’s Hope Fund, so Hannah bobbleheads were also handed out!
