The Joliet Slammers presented by ATI Physical Therapy will

face the Lake Erie Crushers at home the weekend of June 24. The Slammers

won the last series against the Crushers at home earlier this month,

winning two out of the three games. Each of the games will feature a

different theme or promotional night.

Star Wars Night kicks off the weekend series at home on Friday, June 24.

Gates open at 6:05 p.m. with a game time of 7:05 p.m. Different characters

from the series will be at the field to take pictures with fans. There will

be a fireworks show after the game set to Star Wars music, presented by

Lumina Pyrotechnics.

Saturday’s 6:05 p.m. game is Firehouse Subs’ Public Safety Foundation

Night. During a pregame ceremony, there will be an equipment dedication to

local fire departments including Northwest Homer Fire District, Lockport

TWP Fire Department, AllenForce, Coal City Fire Protection District, and

Manhattan Fire Protection District. There will be a customized limited

edition fire safety jersey auction throughout the game, presented by

Firehouse Subs. For every ticket purchased online at www.jolietslammers.com

using the promo code “firehouse,” the Joliet Slammers will donate 50% of

the proceeds back to the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. After the

game, kids are able to run the bases and will receive a coupon for a free

ice cream cone, presented by Andy’s Frozen Custard.

The 1:05 p.m. game on Sunday, June 26, is Weather Safety Day at the

ballpark. The College of Dupage Nexlab will be at the field with storm

chasers, a weather truck, and giveaways. After the game, players will be

available for autographs. Kids can run the bases on Sunday as well, and

will receive a coupon for a free ice cream cone, presented by Andy’s Frozen

Custard. Sunday’s game is a Double Feature, so Ice Age will play on the

jumbotron while players are signing autographs. The movie showing is free

for fans to stay and watch the game with a ticket, and tickets will be

available for purchase for $1 to the public.
