Rockhounds release lineup of ballpark promotions ahead of 52nd season

The Midland Rockhounds released its lineup of promotions for its 52nd franchise season: a 69-game schedule jam-packed with theme nights, giveaways and daily specials.

The Rockhounds’ home opener is Tuesday, April 9, and this year Momentum Bank Ballpark will offer 14 fireworks shows, 17 giveaway item games, eight specialty jerseys, six Copa nights and much more.  Among the giveaways will be a Lawrence Butler bobblehead doll, which will be distributed at the ballpark on June 21. Butler started his 2023 season in Midland and made his MLB debut in Oakland on Aug. 11.

Theme nights this season include Star Wars, Marvel’s Defenders of the Diamond, Christmas in July and Pirates and Princesses. Bark in the Park makes its return for three nights early in the season, along with Safety Awareness Days for schools. Three consecutive firework nights will accompany the annual Independence Day Celebration from July 4-6.

In December, the Rockhounds announced that ConocoPhillips is now the team’s presenting sponsor.

“We are pleased to announce an excellent 2024 promotional schedule, which our team has earnestly put together for RockHounds fans,” says RockHounds GM Shelly Haenggi. “This season’s promo schedule offers a great deal of variety and fun for everyone. Our promotions include exciting theme nights, spectacular fireworks celebrations, and unique giveaways to be enjoyed by fans of all ages. We look forward to celebrating another great season of RockHounds baseball, quality family entertainment, and much in store for ’24!”
