Dust Devils Announce 2011 SchedulePosted: Updated:
PASCO, Wash. -- The Tri-City Dust Devils and the Northwest League have released the schedule for the 2011 season. Opening Night at Gesa Stadium will be Friday, June 17th versus the Everett AquaSox, who won the Northwest League Championship in 2010. For the first time since 2005, the Dust Devils will begin the season at home. The Dust Devils will wrap up their 38-game home schedule on Saturday, September 3rd vs. Salem-Keizer.
The Dust Devils will look to set a single-season attendance record for the fifth consecutive year in 2011. A total of 84,921 fans visited Gesa Stadium in 2010, an increase of 723 over 2009.
"The 2011 schedule sets us up to have another summer full of great promotions, and Gesa Stadium will remain the place to be in the Tri-Cities for affordable family fun," says Vice President/General Manager Derrel Ebert.
Fireworks will once again follow the season opener, finale, and every Saturday game during the season. A full promotional schedule will be released in the spring.
Lower box seats were sold out for 21 of the team's 38 home games in 2010, which makes it more important than ever for fans to purchase a ticket package in advance to secure a reserved seat for the most popular nights. Prices for ticket packages are unchanged from 2010.
Ticket plans start at just $49, with full-season tickets available for as low as $259. Special ticket rates are available for groups of 20 or more. Season tickets, mini-plans, and group tickets can be purchased by contacting the Dust Devils front office at (509) 544-8789 or at the Gesa Stadium box office.
