SPRINGDALE, Ark. (KNWA) — The Northwest Arkansas Naturals announced the team’s 2020 promotional schedule on Wednesday.
The promotions include post-game fireworks shows, theme nights, and giveaways.
The team’s 2020 campaign begins at Arvest Ballpark in Springdale on April 16 with an opening night fireworks show and magnet schedule giveaway.
A new addition to the promotional schedule is Marvel Super Hero Night (Friday, June 26), featuring a Captain America bobblehead and post-game fireworks show.
