LINCOLN — The 2014 Saltdogs game schedule has been set, and it features three double headers at Haymarket Park plus a 10-game road trip through the Can-Am League.
Lincoln opens the upcoming campaign on May 15 at Kansas City, the first of a seven-game road trip before hosting Winnipeg on Friday, May 23 for the home opener at Haymarket Park. This year's Glow Run 5K is May 24, and the ballgame will begin at 7:45 p.m. that night.
The Saltdogs play their first of three scheduled double headers May 26; two seven-inning contests beginning at 5:05 p.m. against Grand Prairie. Lincoln welcomes two-time defending North division champion Fargo-Moorhead for a four-game series in early June, beginning with a doubleheader June 3.
Sioux City comes to town to wrap up the season with a four-game series, beginning with a day-night twin bill August 29. Start times will be 11:05 a.m. and 7:05 p.m.
Lincoln embarks on a three-city, 10-game road trip against yet to be determined Can-Am League clubs from July 11-20. The Saltdogs did not play at any Can-Am ballparks in 2013 but finished the season on a three-city interleague trip in 2012.
The American Association All-Star game is returning for 2014, and league play will break July 28 and 29 as the festivities take place at Shaw Park in Winnipeg.
Each of the other 11 clubs in the American Association will make at least one visit to Lincoln. The Saltdogs host Grand Prairie – whom they have not played in Lincoln since 2011 – seven times in 2014.
The defending champion Gary SouthShore RailCats play a three-game series at Haymarket June 13-15. The 'Dogs play at U.S. Steel Yard June 20-22 and August 3-6.
Fireworks shows, as well as a full promotions schedule for the Saltdogs at Haymarket Park will be released at a later date.
