Your chances to catch a Boise Hawks game are rapidly dwindling. The team has only seven home games left in the season. Wednesday, Aug. 18, the Hawks take on the Everett Aquasox in the final game of a five-game series, then the team takes a day off before kicking off 11 days on the road followed by six home games. Tuesday, Aug. 31, the Hawks play the Spokane Indians, ending a six-game series, and on Friday, Sept. 3, the Hawks start a final three-game series against the Yakima Bears.
Want to go, but short on cash? Watch for tips in BW's first-ever Annual Manual, which hits stands Wednesday, Aug. 25. You'll find a few cost-saving ways to take in a game--whether it's the Hawks, Idaho Stampede or Idaho Steelheads. But since we're talking baseball, here's what you need to know:
Wednesdays, Aug. 18 and Sept. 1, are $1 nights. The snack bar has a $1 menu that includes hot dogs, pop corn, ice cream, sandwiches and scones. Fans wearing a Hawkstown bracelet to Memorial Stadium can score a $1 ticket in reserved first baseline seating.
Tuesday, Aug. 31, you'll need to be a fan of faux cheese or of reading to get a free ticket. Bring your Kraft Singles wrapper to the stadium, and you'll get a buy-one-get-one deal on tickets. Or, kids who've been diligent readers in Key Bank's reading program can earn a free ticket.
Thursday, Sept. 2, and Sunday, Sept. 5, it's four drinks, four hot dogs and four tickets for $34.
You won't score cheap seats the final weekend of games, but Friday, Sept. 3, is your last chance to catch post-game fireworks, and Saturday, Sept. 4, is a post-game block party.
