Pelicans hold World Series party to root for Rangers

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans are holding a World Series Viewing Party at Broadway Louie’s for Thursday night’s Game 6 between the parent club Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals.

With the Rangers and the Pelicans in the hunt for their first Major League World Championship, fans of both teams will gather at the popular Broadway at the Beach sports bar to see Texas try to close out the World Series in St. Louis. The Rangers lead the best-of-seven series 3-2. Wednesday’s scheduled Game 6 was rained out and postponed to Thursday.

Broadway Louie’s features multiple high-definition televisions throughout the bar, including the 25-foot Jumbo Screen. Fox’s coverage of the game starts at 7:30 p.m. In keeping with the Pelicans’ Thirsty Thursday tradition, beer specials will include $1.50 Bud/Bud Light bottles and $5.50 domestic pitchers, and the kitchen serves appetizers and entrees.

There is no admission charge for the party and children are welcome to watch the game and play their own games in the arcade. The Pelicans will hold drawings for prizes between innings and the best dressed Rangers fan will win a premium prize package.

This is the first full season of the Pelicans’ affiliation with the Rangers, who played an exhibition game at Coastal Federal Field before the season to cement their new relationship with the Class A franchise. But the Pelicans already have some deep ties with the team.

The Rangers’ roster includes two former Pelicans – shortstop Elvis Andrus  and pitcher Matt Harrison, who is scheduled to start Game 7, if necessary. Two ex-Pelicans also play for the Cardinals – shortstop Rafael Furcal and injured pitcher Adam Wainwright, the only former Pelican who currently owns a World Series ring with the Cardinals in 2006.

The Pelicans also had a breakout season in their first year with the Rangers. Myrtle Beach reached the playoffs for the first time since 2008 and hope to claim their first Carolina League championship since 2000 next year. Flex Books and Mini Plans for the Pelicans 2012 season are on sale now at BB&T Coastal Field. For more information, please call the Pelicans at (843) 918-6000 or visit www.myrtlebeachpelicans.com.
