Stars offering free admission Wednesday

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) – The Huntsville Stars have moved their series opener against the Jacksonville Suns Tuesday to Wednesday and are offering free admission to all northern Alabama residents.

The Stars plan to start the series at Joe Davis Stadium on Wednesday at 11:03 a.m. Gates will open at 10 a.m. and admission will be free to all northern Alabama residents. The Stars are asking their fans for donations for the recent tornado victims in lieu of paying for admission.

"We're making plans to move forward with baseball with or without power," said Buck Rogers, General Manager of the Huntsville Stars. "After the recent storms hitting Alabama, residents need an escape and we're just thankful we can provide that for them."

Depending on power, limited concessions will be available.

The Stars will make up Tuesday's game with a double header on Thursday, starting at 4:43 p.m. Gates will open at 4 p.m. There will also be a double-dose of Thirst-Aid Thursday, with $2 20-ounce drafts through fifth inning of the second game.

The homestand continues with Pleasures' Ladies Night Fridays where all females 18 and older receive 50% off at the ticket office. First pitch is at 6:43 p.m. There will also be a fireworks show after the conclusion of the game. Saturday is McDonalds' Youth Sports Night. All kids wearing their youth sports uniform will receive free admission. Stick around after the game for the annual Alexander's Jewelers Diamond Dig. All women 18 and older will be invited down on the field after the game. They'll get the chance to dig on the warning track for diamonds and other great prizes, just in time for Mother's Day.
