The Florida Fire Frogs, who return to Osceola Stadium Monday after a week-long road trip, are planning a season-ending bash for their fans in two weeks.
The “Fire Frogs Block Party and Fan Appreciation Weekend” at Osceola County Stadium will take place Aug. 25-27, celebrating the team’s inaugural season in Kissimmee.
All Fire Frogs fans will save $5 off each advanced ticket purchased for the three games against the Daytona Tortugas.
For each ticket purchased in advance, a ticket will be donated to an Osceola County youth organization.
Fire Frogs partners will be on hand with giveaways, and each game will be highlighted by pre-game musical entertainment on the main concourse.
Additional Fire Frogs Block Party details will be announced as the series draws closer.
“The City of Kissimmee, Osceola County and the entire Central Florida region have really embraced the Fire Frogs during our inaugural season in the area. We want to thank our season seat members, community and corporate partners, and fans who have supported us throughout the year,” Fire Frogs President Joe Harrington said.
“We cannot thank the community enough, and want to do something special to show appreciation for their commitment to the Fire Frogs. I know everyone who attends will have a lot of fun, and a great set of crowds will be there to cap off the 2017 season and provide a springboard to 2018!”
Osceola County Stadium will be filled with exciting games and entertainment throughout the weekend, with great prizes, including: a personalized Fire Frogs jersey, 2018 season tickets, and other exciting items.
The Fire Frogs (39-68) after Wednesday’s 6-5 loss at St. Lucie, will likely miss the Florida State League playoffs. The team was 13 games behind North Division leader Tampa in the standings with 20 to play.
The Florida State League teams can qualify for the playoffs by winning either the first half season championship or the second half season crown. Florida has promoted several of their best players to Class AA during the season.
The Frogs will host Tampa for four games beginning Monday at 7:30 p.m.
Fans are encouraged to visit, and stay up to date on the team’s social media platforms for updates leading up to the Fire Frogs Block Party and Fan Appreciation Weekend.
