LAREDO, TX – The Laredo Lemurs have released their much anticipated 2013 promotional schedule highlighted by the home opener scheduled for Thursday, May 16, 2013 at 7:30pm against the 2012 Northern Division Champs Fargo-Morehead Redhawks. The Lemurs play the Redhawks in a four-game series before taking on the Grand Prairie AirHogs in a three game series to finish off the opening seven-game homestand.
The rest of the Lemurs 2013 schedule is highlighted by 30 of its 50 home games falling on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday. The Lemurs will bring back Miller Lite Thirsty Thursdays where fans can enjoy $1.00 Miller Lite beer all night long. Every Friday night will again feature a spectacular post game fireworks display. On Saturday, May 18th the 1st 4,000 fans will receive a free Lemurs Rally Rag. The remaining eight Saturday nights feature giveaways of baseballs, caps, koozies, thundersticks, mini-bats and backpacks to the first 1,000 people through the gates. New for this year is the addition of “Margarita Mondays” with specially priced $2.00 Margaritas all night long at every Monday night game. Every Sunday will be “Family Day” at Uni-Trade Stadium where families can purchase 4 tickets, 4 hot dogs, 4 bags of chips and 4 soft drinks for $44.00. Every Wednesday will be Website Wednesdays where special offers for tickets and concessions will be available on game day by simply visiting the Lemurs website at www.laredolemurs.com. On Friday, May 31st, the Lemurs will play host to Uni-Trade’s 25th Anniversary Celebration with free hot dogs to everyone in attendance and giveaways through the game of ipads and other electronic gear. This game is sure to be a sellout. On Sunday, June 2nd the Lemurs will host Faith & Family Day with a special start time of 3:16pm. Two additional promotional nights slated for this season are Laundry Night on Wednesday, July 17th and Bring Your Imaginary Girlfriend to the Game Night on Friday, June 7th. On Laundry night, fans are encouraged to bring their dirty laundry to the game. The Lemurs will wash, dry and fold your laundry and have it waiting for you at the end of the game. On June 7th special discounts will be available all night long for guys who bring their imaginary girlfriend to the game. Guys will be asked several key questions about their imaginary girlfriend prior to entering the stadium to ensure its authenticity.
All that's left as far as promotions are concerned is 'cry yourself to sleep' night. But we all know that there's no crying in baseball. I hope the Lemurs' ideas inspire us to think outside the box.
