FRESNO –  The eighth Fresno Grizzlies homestand of the 2016 season is scheduled for July 22-29, with eight home dates against the Albuquerque Isotopes (Colorado Rockies,  July 21-24) and the Las Vegas 51s (New York Mets, July 26-29) for the defending Triple-A National Champions.  Here is a preview of the week’s promotional schedule:
 

7/22 (7:05 p.m.) –  “30 Amigos Night,” 30th anniversary tribute to cult classic movie ¡Three Amigos!: To begin the homestand, we’re celebrating the 30thanniversary of the release of ¡Three Amigos! starring Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Martin Short.  Stick around after the game and fireworks for a special screening of the movie on the Chukchansi Park video board!

 

The Grizzlies will be donning mariachi-themed uniforms for the game, modeled after the Three Amigos’ costumes from the film. The jerseys will be auctioned off during the game, and fans can bid on the jersey of their favorite player.  Proceeds from the jersey auction will benefit Centro La Familia Advocacy Services.  The special caps the team will wear with the jerseys will also be available for purchase in the Grizzlies Team Store.

Fans should also be sure to stay in their seats during the 7th inning stretch for a special rendition of My Little Buttercup in the spirit of the legendary performance from the movie in the Mexican Cantina by the Three Amigos.  Post-Game Friday Fireworks will follow, presented by Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino. It’s also another “Farm Grown Friday,” with an in-ballpark farmer's market prior to and during the game, presented by Whole Foods.

7/23 (7:05 p.m.) Growlifornia Hat Night | Explore Growlifornia Night: Saturday will be the first opportunity for fans to get their “Growlifornia Republic” hat presented by Phoenix Coatings, Inc, which is an exclusive giveaway as part of a special Grizzlies 7-game mini plan (NOT a gate giveaway).  To score a hat of your own, you can purchase a 7-game plan by calling the Fresno Grizzlies Ticket Office at 559-320-TIXS.  It’s also “Explore Growlifornia Night” at Chukchansi Park; find your park by helping us celebrate the National Park Service Centennial at the game.

7/24 (5:05 p.m.) – Save Mart Sunday: Pre-game future-Houston Astros autograph session with two Grizzlies as a part of Save Mart Sundays, and post-game Kids Run the Bases (12 and under), presented by Sun-Maid.  Fans can also take $5 off tickets by showing a Save Mart receipt at the box office!  (Some restrictions may apply.)  Family Catch on the Field will begin at approximately 4:05 p.m. after gates open, lasting for 15 to 20 minutes in the outfield.

7/26 (7:05 p.m.) - Taco Tuesday | Fresno Tacos: It's Tuesday at the ballpark, which can only mean one thing:  The Fresno Tacos are back in town!  Enjoy food from local taco trucks throughout the game as we celebrate Fresno's taco legacy.  The Grizzlies will be donning the uniforms of their alter-ego for the game, the 2016 "Fresno Tacos," and the caps and jerseys are currently available in the Grizzlies Team Store.  (The “Tacos” are 5-2 this season.)  Get 2-for-1 Field Box and Phoenix Club tickets, $2 tacos, $2 churros and $2 sodas through the fifth inning.

7/27 (7:05 p.m.) - 25-Cent Hot Dogs | Wear The Bear Wednesday | Everybody “Wins”-Day: Hot Dogs for a quarter!  Presented by Armour Ekrich, Hot Dogs will be available for just 25 cents through the seventh inning (limit 10 per individual transaction).  It's another "Wear The Bear" Wednesday and "Everybody Wins-Day" (presented by Round Table Pizza), so wear Grizzlies gear for a chance to win free tickets to the following Wednesday home game!  Anyone wearing Grizz gear in the team store will also get 25% off merchandise.  If the Grizzlies win, everybody in attendance will receive six (6) FREE garlic parmesan breadsticks from Round Table Pizza!

7/28 (5:05 p.m.) DOUBLEHEADER – Tri-Tip Throwdown presented by JD Food | Tecate Thursday: Let’s play two!  Who makes the best tri-tip in the Central Valley? That’s the question we’ll answer in the annual competition at Chukchansi Park, and fans will have plenty of time to decide on their favorite tri-tip, as the Grizzlies and Vegas play two seven-inning games, to make up a postponement from April.  Come to the game hungry, sample the tri-tip, and vote/judge for yourself!  It's also Tecate Thursday, with $2 Tecate and Tecate Light (24 oz!) available through the 5th inning!  Sodas (12 oz) are also just $1 all game on Thursdays.

7/29 (7:05 p.m) – Post-Game Fireworks | Farm-Grown Friday | Tacolympics: Post-Game Friday Fireworks will follow the game, presented by CoBank. It’s also another “Farm Grown Friday,” with an in-ballpark farmer's market prior to and during the game, presented by Whole Foods.  Friday is also the first “Tacolympics” competition at Chukchansi Park – imagine a “Double Dare”-style competition, but with taco ingredients!  We’re not sure what to expect for the first time, but it will be messy!
