The Normal CornBelters, presented by Illinois Corn Farmers, have announced their weekly promotional nights happening at The Corn Crib!  Each of these promotions – designed to make a family fun evening out for a reasonable price – brings non-farmers to the stadium where they experience and learn about farmers and agriculture.

The CornBelters are set to host 48 games during the season with a new special promotional discount for students with a valid student ID.  On Busey Bank Reading Program Tuesdays, kids 12 and under will receive half-priced box seat tickets and all kids in attendance will have the opportunity to head down to the field to run the bases following the conclusion of each game.

New this season is the Mid-Illini Credit Union Wine Down Wednesdays. Select wine will be on special and a local not-for-profit organization will be promoted at the stadium as part of our Corny Cares program.  Wednesdays are also the night when dogs are welcome in select seating.

Thursdays feature ice-cold $1 domestic beers and $2 margaritas to get an early start on the weekend while CEFCU Friday Night Fireworks will take the stage following a “Salute to Armed Forces” as we pay tribute to active and veteran military members in attendance.

To cap off the week, Heartland Bank & Trust Family Fun Sundays provides families with an early 4:30 pm game time allowing time for worship & baseball. Families can purchase the Family 4-Pack, which includes four box seat tickets and four hot dog and drink vouchers for only $40.

Each person that enters the stadium for a ball game will also meet Justin Durdan, Utica and Aron Carlson, Winnebago via posters and promotional items throughout the stadium.  The www.watchusgrow.org website is positioned as an authority for patrons on food issues during videos on the jumbotron and signage throughout the stadium. 

Illinois Corn changes minds about farmers and farming through this local opportunity held annually from May through September. Check it out!

Single game tickets are on sale now. Visit us online at www.normalbaseball.com, or by giving our Mid-Illini Credit Union Box Office a call at (309) 454-2255.
