Seeing as it’s Opening Day for Major League Baseball (go Cubbies!), let’s check in on our beloved minor league Flying Squirrels 2016 nightly promotions. The Squirrels home schedule begins April 14th at 6:35PM against the Altoona Curve. (The Squirrels will be opening The Diamond on April 7th-9th to host a three-day, four game series against the Hartford Yard Goats due to uncertainty surrounding the Hartford ballpark opening date.)
Monday’s: Bark in the Park – Dogs welcome for free with select dog-related giveaways (except Monday July 4th , moved to July 5th)
Tuesday’s: Silver Squirrels Day! Special Ticket, food and merchandise package available for senior fans

You can check out the specific giveaways & promos for each date here.
Unfortunately, Bark in the Park seems to have replaced the “Buy one ticket, get one free” McDonald’s Mondays, unless that has yet to be added to the schedule.
2016 Flying Squirrels Ticket Prices: (in advance) $12 Field Level, $9 Terrace Level, $8 General Admission. Tickets are $1 more on the day of the game. NOTE: there is an additional $1.50 per ticket “convenience fee”!
