The Columbia Fireflies will open the 2020 season on April 9 against the August GreenJackets at Segra Park.
That game is part of a seven-game homestead to kick off the Fireflies’ fifth season in Columbia. Opening night, which will feature a Thirsty Thursday beer special promotion, will be the first of three consecutive contest with post-game fireworks shows.
The 2020 schedule includes 20 fireworks shows and five giveaways.
“We are thrilled to release the first wave of 2020 promotional highlights,” Fireflies team president John Katz said in a news release. “Our first four seasons in Columbia have been fantastic, and we are excited to take our fan experience to the next level in 2020. Our fifth season is going to be the best yet, and more fantastic events will be announced as we get closer to the season.”
