The Off Season…

Hello all you Sand Gnats Fans,

It has been a very long while since we last updated you on the goings on here at Historic Grayson Stadium. Although the players are no longer here, there are still a lot of things going on with the team.

Media Relations Director, Mike Passanisi, has been keeping up with former Sand Gnats players as they continue to play ball in Hawaii, Arizona and the Dominican so be sure to keep tabs on you favorite players! He has also created a few downloadable wallpapers to ensure, not only that you don’t forget what Gnate T. Gnat looks like, but also to help you plan your summer around the big Sand Gnats games in 2009.

If you have been longing to see the beautiful field and just can’t wait until April 9th (home opener against Augusta) don’t fret, there a bunch of off-season events here at Grayson. We recently hosted the Annual Small Dog Festival, and finals of the wiener dog races!! This included a costume contest, in which a cocker spaniel dressed as a mail man took home first place honors.

This coming Saturday October, 18 there is a hip-hop concert at the stadium as well as small carnival type event out side in the ticket plaza from 4-6. Make sure to come on out and say hi to the front office staff.

More fun events to plan for:
Chili Bowl Cook Off- February 28
Annual 5K- May 2

Alright well thats all for now. BUTTT i PROMISE there will be some more exciting news on the way. After all, we have to do something to keep ourselves occupied.
