From April to August, join the fun and root, root, root for our home team in historic Jackie Robinson Ballpark. Affiliated with the Cincinnati Reds, the Daytona Tortugas compete in the Florida State League.
The Tortugas will once again delight fans at all of the 73 home games this season. The Tortugas’ new season will feature ”Shell-Tastic Saturdays,” five total bobblehead giveaways, 24 total fireworks shows, t-shirt giveaways every Sunday, and being the “best-dressed team in baseball” every Friday Night as the team wears a different specialty jersey.
The Tortugas will incorporate all-day events and promotions on each of the 10 “Shell-tastic Saturdays” this season! These Saturdays include a total of 5 bobblehead giveaways, post-game fireworks and many large community events. Fan favorites Belly Buster Monday, Taco Tuesday and Thirsty Thursday will also return in 2019. Belly Buster Monday will include two different Taste of Daytonas and an expansion of the Landshark Monday Mug Club. The Tortugas will continue to help local community organizations on Wishful Wednesdays presented by VyStar Credit Union. Plus, the biggest party in town starts at Jackie Robinson Ballpark every Thursday night with the Tortugas adding live music to the Thursday Night Entertainment Series.
Friday Night Fireworks return in 2019 with a post-game fireworks show every Friday and Saturday at the Jack. With the addition of Friday Night Fireworks, the Tortugas have nearly doubled the number of shows for fans over the past couple of seasons. The Jack will once again be the place to be during the weekend with Tiny Tugas Nights every Sunday night. Also, the first 500 fans will receive a free t-shirt every Sunday home game.
Opening Night is scheduled for Thursday, April 4th, and the Tortugas will roll out the green-carpet all around Volusia County in preparation for the 2019 season. Opening Night will feature top entertainment, post-game fireworks show, and a magnet schedule courtesy of Daytona Beach International Airport. The Tortugas will then unveil specialty jerseys on Friday, April 5th, when the biggest party in town continues with Friday Night Happy Hour.
