Savannah Sand Gnats are Swinging in this Spring!
Spring is in Savannah and the sand gnats know it. Not just those pesky little twerps, but the Savannah Sand Gnats (Savannah's very own, minor league baseball team) and they are ready to hit some homers! If you are as excited about spring as we are, you don't want to miss Opening Night at Grayson Stadium as the Savannah Sand Gnats face-off against Greenville on Friday, April 15, 2011.
The gates will open at 5:05PM, with the first pitch being thrown at 7:05PM!
Can't make Opening Night? Help out the Susan G. Komen for the Cure at the Sand Gnat's Pink-in-the-Park event on May 7th. Attendees are invited to bid on the game-worn Pink Jerseys to help raise awareness and funds for the organization, which is sponsored by The Lasky Law Group.
Are you a Hometown Hero? On Saturday, April 23rd the Sand Gnats invited Savannah's Hometown Heroes out to Grayson Stadium for a special event honoring our local firefighters, first responders, military, and police. The Hometown Hero event will feature awesome interactive displays and activities presented by Hernandez Collision Center.
