Putting a twist on the traditional television theme night promotion, the Gary SouthShore RailCats (independent; American Association) will offer a pop culture “Pop Up Bar” on Wednesdays.
Theme nights that pay tribute to a popular TV series have become an increasingly common entry on promotional schedules across baseball. The RailCats will host several TV theme nights at U.S. Steel Yard this season, and the theme nights will come with their own Pop Up Bars that offer food and drink specials inspired by the show.
As part of Pop-Up Bar Wednesdays, the RailCats will move first pitch up to a “happy hour” time of 6:45 for night games. Pop Up Bars will be staged at the Creekside Bar, a new addition to the ballpark this season. There are currently eight Pop Up Bar Wednesdays scheduled for the 2019 season
