ALCOA - The Tennessee Smokies baseball team has its home opener Wednesday night against the Mississippi Braves.
First pitch at Smokies Stadium is set for 7 p.m. ET.
"It is officially baseball season, and we are excited to get back on the field again," said Smokies President and COO Chris Allen in a news release.
Wednesday night’s game begins a four-game homestand for the Smokies.
The team is featuring a 60-degree weather guarantee for Wednesday’s game. If the weather is below 60 degrees at first pitch, every fan in attendance can use their ticket stub for a free field-level ticket to any Smokies home game in April 2017.
The Smokies (2-3) enter Wednesday night’s game on a two-game losing streak. Tennessee went 58-81 during the 2016 campaign under manager Mark Johnson.
The Braves (3-2) are on a two-game winning streak headed into Wednesday’s game.
The Smokies and the Braves are the AA affiliates for the Chicago Cubs and the Atlanta Braves respectively.
