The Hickory Crawdads, South Atlantic League affiliate of the Texas Rangers, have announced game times for the 20th Anniversary Season in 2012. The Crawdads will open the season on the road,
before the 2012 Home Opener on Thursday, April 12 vs. the Asheville Tourists at 7 p.m.
The most notable change to the Crawdads game times in 2012 is that Saturday home games will start at 6 p.m., with gates opening at 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday games will remain at 7 p.m. throughout the season.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday home games will also have a different look early in the 2012 season. During the months of April and May, Monday-Wednesday games will start at 6 p.m. Monday-Wednesday games will then go back to 7 p.m. during the summer months of June-Sept.
"We are excited about the game time changes for the 2012 season and, based on feedback from our fans, feel like the 6 p.m. starts on Saturdays will make it more convenient for families to come out with their kids," said General Manager Mark Seaman. "The 6 p.m. start times for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday games in April and May will also make the nights a little earlier for families to enjoy games on school nights, too."
The Crawdads will also have five weekday day games in 2012:
Wed., April 25 - 11 a.m.
Mon., April 30 - 11 a.m.
Wed., May 16 - 11 a.m.
Mon., June 4 - 11 a.m.
Wed., July 25 - 12 p.m.
