Listen to the Keys at work, win a bobblehead on Facebook
Shortly after yesterday’s blog post went up, the Keys got rained out in Winston-Salem.
The good news is you don’t have to wait long for Keys baseball today. Frederick takes on Winston-Salem this morning at 11 a.m., looking to cap off an undefeated road trip.
If the Keys, who have won their first four games on this trip, win today, it will be their most successful road swing in recent Keys history. The best trips in recent memory:
- 5/27-29/11 – Keys swept Salem Red Sox; 4 games in 3 nights – 4-0 road trip
- 7/13-20/11 – 8 game trip to Wilmington & Kinston; Lost game 1 in Wilmington, won 6 in a row, lost game 8 in Kinston
- 8/19-24/05 – 7 game road trip to Myrtle Beach & Kinston; Won first 5 games but lost final 2 in Kinston
Listen to today’s game on AM1450 The Source, online at wthu.org or through the TuneIn Radio App by searching for WTHU. The Frederick Gorilla Pregame Show starts 30 minutes before first pitch.
*We’ll be giving away Manny Machado bobbleheads to the first 1,000 fans in the gates at Harry Grove Stadium for Saturday’s 6 p.m. game against Wilmington. Gates open at 5.
We’re also giving away a bobble today, tomorrow and Friday on our Facebook page. To win it, like us and then keep yours eyes peeled for a Manny Machado trivia question. Be the first to correctly answer, and the bobble is yours.
Tickets to Saturday’s game and the rest of the four-game series with Wilmington that begins Friday at 7 p.m. can be purchased online here, by calling 301-815-9939 or by visiting the Keys’ box office at The Grove.
For those of you who want a Manny bobblehead, but don’t want to fight the crowd Saturday, a free bobblehead comes with the purchase of any of our ticket plans. One bobble head per seat. We have Dylan Bundy, too.
*Speaking of Manny, his WAR (Wins Above Replacement) is better than that of fellow phenoms Bryce Harper and Mike Trout, for all you lovers of advanced metrics. Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal gives Machado love in this story.
*For those of you wondering, Tuesday’s postponed game will be made up in Winston-Salem as part of a Memorial Day Doubleheader.
Shake your Keys.
