Disco Turkeys to host a Hometown Heroes Night on Friday to kick off homestand

The Carolina Disco Turkeys will host a Hometown Heroes Night this Friday night at Wake Forest University’s Couch Ballpark with teachers, healthcare workers and first responders all receiving free admission.

Fans can show their work badge at the ticket window to get their free ticket. Additional tickets are $10. Kids 3 and under are free and parking is free. Stilt walker Skyler Light will also be in uniform for the Disco Turkeys for the game.

The event, presented by Novant Health, will highlight the efforts of locals working in all these integral professions and their impact on the community.

On the field, the Disco Turkeys will play the visiting Queen City Corndogs at 6:30 p.m. Gates open at 5:30 p.m.

“We’re hoping for a big turnout for the game and can’t wait to have all of these groups in the ballpark and having fun together with us,” said Disco Turkeys team president Greg Sullivan. “We know a lot of our fans are in healthcare or are teachers, firefighters, police or similar fields and this is a great chance for them to introduce their work friends to our team.”

The Disco Turkeys are the only baseball team playing in Winston-Salem this weekend with the Dash out of town.

The Disco Turkeys, one of the top summer collegiate baseball teams in the area, are a perfect 7-0 at home so far this summer. They follow Friday with a Pride Night on Saturday night when they welcome the Regulators Baseball Club for a doubleheader at 6 p.m. The Disco Turkeys have another upcoming game on July 4 at Couch Ballpark that will feature an Independence Day post-game fireworks show.
