Baseball is BACK in the Treasure Valley! After over 600 days - and no I'm not being dramatic - the Boise Hawks are in action again with their first home stand of the season this Memorial Day Weekend. The energy inside Memorial Stadium on opening night was something none of us had felt in a long, long time.

If you head out to a game this weekend or any other games this season, I might just see you there! I'm so pumped to announce that I'm the newest Boise Hawks on-field host. I'll be the splitting emcee duties and having some fun on the field for close to half of the Hawks' home games this season. I come from a sports background in my career and so it feels like home for me to be back on a baseball diamond. There's a lot to look forward to this season with Hawks.

Every Wednesday night is Wag Along Wednesday where dogs are welcomed in to Memorial Stadium. Boise Papas Fritas days are a tribute to Idaho’s state vegetable, the potato, and the farming community which drives the state’s economy. Your kids also will love Story Time on the Field where they can join the Hawks players on the field for a pre-game (6:35 to 6:55) story presented by Meridian Library District and Ada Community Libraries.

Bring the whole family (even the dog) out for a night of baseball sometime soon! Purchase tickets and check out the Hawk's full schedule here.
