The Stone Crabs officially released the 2011 schedule this week. They kick off the season at home on Thursday April 7 against Bradenton as they look to win the South Division for the third consecutive season.
The game times for the 2011 campaign have changed. Monday through Saturday home games will now start at 6:30pm and Sunday games have moved to 1:30pm. The 6:30 start time should be more family friendly while the 1:30 start time should allow the games to wrap up before the Florida afternoon thunderstorms.
The schedule still features the 10 premiere games which are the highlights of the promotional schedule. This season they are:
4/7: vs Bradenton
4/30: vs Fort Myers
5/14: vs Lakeland
5/27: vs Tampa
6/3: vs Daytona
6/25: vs Palm Beach
7/4: vs Jupiter
7/22: vs Dunedin
8/20: vs Fort Myers
9/3: vs Bradenton
The full promotional schedule and events will be released in the coming weeks.
The Stone Crabs have season ticket packages available. Choose from full season (70 games), half season (35 games) or the 10-Game pack that includes the top ten promotional nights listed above. Visit their website to learn more about the season ticket packages.
