The team released its 2018 promotional calendar Tuesday with bobblehead giveaway nights planned for April 6 for Ronald Acuna, May 18 for Mike Soroka, June 15 for Max Fried and July 7 for Kolby Allard.
Dubbed the Sally League Championship Bobblehead Series, the four players represented were part of the 2016 Rome Braves team that won the SAL title and continue to be valued prospects in the Braves’ organization.
Acuna, an outfielder, is ranked as the top prospect in baseball, while pitchers Soroka, Fried and Allard have all separated themselves as some of the best arms in the Braves’ farm system.
This season will also feature fireworks after three Rome games — April 7, July 3 and August 25 — as well as Star Wars Night on May 4 and replica jersey giveaway May 5.
The Rome Braves’ open the season at State Mutual Stadium on April 5 against the Hagerstown Suns. First pitch is at 7 p.m. with gates opening at 6 p.m.
Individual game tickets go on sale March 10 at 7 a.m. with online sales starting at 9 a.m. The team’s annual Redneck Rummage Sale will take place that day beginning at 7 a.m. as well.
