Welland Jackfish to Host Preseason Party on May 2

The Welland Jackfish are celebrating the return of baseball season with a Preseason Party at Welland Stadium on Saturday, May 2 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

This open house is FREE and will include complimentary hot dogs and soda, and features activities for fans of all ages. Fans can participate in on-field batting practice, take self-guided tours of the ballpark, purchase individual game tickets for all 2020 home games, and shop for Jackfish merchandise at The Tackle Box Team Store. There will also be activities for kids, including inflatable games and amusements, face painting, and visits with mascot Jacques.

For a $10 donation to The Hope Centre, fans can swing for the fences like Jackfish players in an on-field batting practice (weather permitting). Each $10 donation includes 10 swings.

Self-guided tours will give fans access to behind-the-scenes areas of Welland Stadium, including the home clubhouse and dugout. Fans can also scope out the view from any seat, group party area, or luxury areas with a member of the Jackfish ticket sales staff.

The Welland Stadium Ticket Office will be open for the event, giving fans their first chance to purchase individual game tickets to all 18 Jackfish home games. Fans are advised to get a great seat now, and avoid box office lines and a $2 increase on game day. For a list of all games and promotions, visit WellandJackfish.com

Fans who have purchased a 2020 ticket plan will be able to pick up their packages at any time from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.
