PENDER COUNTY – The Wilmington Shark and Pender County Tourism is teaming up to host Pender County Night, July 28.
All youth softball and baseball leagues will get free admission, including coaches.
“I think we’ve hit a home run with Pender County Night at the Wilmington Sharks,” said Tammy Proctor, tourism director. “Anyone wishing to attend can purchase discounted tickets online for only $5.”
The Wilmington Sharks’ mascot, Sharkey, will celebrate a birthday on June 28, Pender County Night. The first 500 guests at the gate will receive a free Sharkey bobblehead.
“Pender County has a special connection to the Wilmington Sharks because three players hail from Pender County – Bryce Coto, Sam Luchansky, and Danny Wilson,” said Proctor. “We urge the community to turn out to Legion Stadium on Saturday night, July 28.”
As a host with the Wilmington Sharks, Pender County will honor five heroes, throw out the first pitch, and sing the National Anthem.
Legion Stadium is located at 2149 Carolina Beach Rd, Wilmington, NC 28412. To purchase tickets online go to https://groupmatics.events/Pendercounty2. Tickets at the gate are only $7 each.
