Since baseball season has officially begun, it is time to get those ball caps on and head to a game.
CSUSB is known to be a commuter school, so for the students who commute from the High Desert, there is plenty of baseball in their city.
The High Desert Maverick’s are a high A minor league professional baseball team that is affiliated with the Texas Rangers.
The Maverick’s stadium is located in the middle of the Mojave Desert in the city of Adelanto. The stadium opened on April 23, 1991.
Heritage Field is a city-owned $6.5 million dollar facility, but has recently been viewed as a burden to Adelanto city officials.
The city made an attempt to evict the team from the facility, but lost when the Supreme Court decided to issue three judgments all in favor of the High Desert Mavericks on April 4, 2016.
The High Desert Mavericks are thrilled they can continue to bring baseball to the city and have plenty of offers for this season.
In 2015 alone, the Mavericks hosted over 94,000 fans.
There will be something new everyday, as promotions will be offered seven days a week at Heritage Field.
This year includes the additions of Military Mondays, Winning WINSdays, Skyrocket Saturdays and 75th Anniversary Sundays.
In honor of those who protect our nation, every game that lands on a Monday is now Military Monday.
All active and retired veterans can purchase tickets for $2 with their Military I.D.
This offer is also valid for family and friends with no ticket limit on the special.
Winning WINSday will give everyone who attends a game on a Wednesday the chance to receive a free ticket to a future game. The catch, it only applies if the Mavericks happen to win.
Skyrocket Saturdays will consist of a firework show at every Saturday night home game.
75th Anniversary Sundays will offer discounted tickets for Upper Box level seating saving visitors $8. Tickets will be sold for $7.50 ($16 value).
Last season’s promotions such as Texas-Sized Tuesdays, Thirsty Thursdays and Family Feast Fridays, will also remain part of the Maverick’s offers.
Texas-Sized Tuesdays include discounted food and beverages such as Texas Ranger burgers, super nachos and large domestic beers, will now include discounted tickets as well.
Discounted tickets will now be available at the box office for Upper Box level seats for $4.
Thirsty Thursday deals will remain the same, which offers $2 domestic beers and Pepsi products, or large domestic beers for $4.50.
Family Feast Fridays has no new additional offers that were added, but fans will still be able to enjoy a feast of $1 hot dogs, $1 bag of chips and $1 ice cream sandwiches at each Friday night game.
“Our commitment to family, fun, affordable entertainment remains the top priority at Heritage Field,” said General Manager Ben Hemmen.
Everyday is something new, so if you are into baseball or looking for something fun to do with friends or family, visit the High Desert Maverick’s at Heritage Field.
