¡Vamos Chicharrones! It’s Copa de la Diversión weekend at Segra Park presented by Southern Recipe Small Batch. Join us at Segra Park this weekend as the Fireflies transform into Los Chicharrones de Columbia to recognize the impact of Latin players on the game of baseball and the Midlands’ multi-ethnic Latin-X population. The Fireflies (aka los Chicharrones) play at home today through Sunday. Start the weekend off right with a Budweiser Thirsty ThursdayTM, get a Chicharrones Mini Soccer Ball Friday night, catch a post-game firework show on Saturday and let your kids run the bases post-game on Sunday! Enjoy all that and more at Segra Park this weekend. Here are the game-by-game details for your weekend planning:
Thursday, May 19 at 7:05pm: Happy Budweiser Thirsty ThursdayTM, Fireflies fans! Kick off the weekend with half-priced draft beer and fountain sodas plus $2 Bud Lights.
