Pelicans release promotional schedule for 2013 season

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans released their 2013 promotional schedule Thursday in preparation for their 15th anniversary season.

Along with 18 fireworks shows, 70 home games at Pelicans Ballpark will feature weekly theme nights and giveaways all season long.

“We want to make our 15th season extra special on the Grand Strand,” General Manager Andy Milovich said. “We are also placing a strong emphasis on giving back with several community-based promotions this season. There will be no shortage of fun and exciting things to do at the ballpark this season.”

Highlighting the schedule in the opening month will be Military Appreciation Night on April 7, where the Pelicans
will be donning military-themed uniforms with a patriotic color scheme. During the game the Pelicans will be raising money for the “Wounded Warriors Project” and will be honoring the Air Force Base Reunion group. The uniforms will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to the Wounded Warriors Project.

Later in the month the Pelicans will hold Special Olympics Night on April 27 to honor Horry County Special Olympics athletes. The Pelicans will be sporting Olympic-themed jerseys during the game; all proceeds from the auctioned jerseys will go to the Special Olympics of South Carolina.

New in 2013 will be “Make a Splash Monday” where the Pelicans will encourage fans to make a difference in the Myrtle Beach community. Every Monday, the Pelicans will team with a local charity to make an impact. Additionally, fans will have an opportunity to bring non-perishables which will be donated to Backpack Buddies.

Other familiar weekly theme nights include Team Tuesday – featuring a poster giveaway, Weiner Wednesday with
all-you-can-eat $1 hot dogs and Thirsty Thursday, where fans can enjoy $1 domestic drafts from 6-8 p.m. Giveaway nights also will be held throughout the season.

Theme nights include Jurassic Park Night, Great Gatsby Night, Singles Night, Zombie Night, Salute to Boy Bands Night, Smurfs Night, Red Neck Night and Princess Night. Jurassic Park night will feature an appearance by a famous purple Dinosaur while Princess Night will include appearances by some of the most famous movie princesses of all time (Cinderella, Jasmine et al.).

Also included is “Hangover” night, as a tribute to the popular movie comedy series which will debut its third installment this summer. Splash the Pelican’s birthday on April 6 will include appearances by local and regional mascots. Splash will be giving away bikes to several lucky kids in attendance that night.
