Mapson says attendees can bring their dogs for Bark in Park on Thursday, April 4th. They’ll also feature dollar beers and fireworks after the game.

“We have a few new concession stands. We’re going to have some different, extreme items,” added Mapson, who said specialty hot dogs will be served up.

“We will be Las Leyendas for 11, all of our Friday home games this year,” said Mapson.
