This Saturday, July 29, the Tobs will host Military and Local Heroes Appreciation Night at Historic Fleming Stadium, the final Saturday home date in the 2017 season for the Tobs.
Active military members will recieve FREE tickets Saturday, and active military, police, firefighters, and 911 telecommunicators will all recieve tickets for just $4.
Gates will open at 4pm on Saturday, as starting at 4:30pm the Tobs will continue a suspended game from July 4th, which currently is in the top of the fifth inning. Following the completion of the first game, the fourth and final installment of the RA Jeffreys Band Series will play, as the Eli Craig Band will play for one hour. Then, around 7:30 pm, the regularly scheduled game will take place, a seven inning contest.
Fans with tickets from the suspended July 4th game can attend both games by arriving at the gates prior to the start of Game 1. Tickets with admission to both games are available for purchase at the box office prior to the start of Game 1.
The Tobs would like to thank RA Jeffreys, 98.5 Big Dawg Radio, 99.3 Rock City, The US Army Recruitment Center of Rocky Mount, and Medlin Buick-GMC-Mazda of Wilson for presenting Saturday's game.
