    March 14, 2019
    The wait is over and the Clinton LumberKings are excited to announce their 2019 Promotional Schedule. This season will feature four fireworks nights, six post-game concerts, two bobblehead giveaways, and 10 Copa De La Diversion days.
     
    The LumberKings will host the first of their 70 scheduled home games on Saturday, April 6 when they meet the Kane County Cougars in the home opener.
     
    The 2019 season will feature 20 separate giveaway nights and the chance to win Allegiant Air Flight vouchers on - April 19th, May 17th, June 28th, July 26th, August 23rd.
     
    Bobblehead/Bicep Series
     
    Both LumberKings' bobbleheads will be unique. On Friday, July 12th, the first Casey's and Mediacom bobblehead giveaway of the year will be of the muscular 2014 LumberKings outfielder - and current St. Louis Cardinal - Tyler O'Neill. During his only season in Clinton, he batted .247 with 13 home runs and 38 RBIs. Two of his home runs came as Grand Slams - a team record for a single season. While O'Neill's head will bobble, it is his bobbling bicep that will make this bobblehead something like no other.
     
    The last 30-game winner in Major League Baseball, Denny McLain will be the subject of the second and final Casey's and Mediacom bobblehead giveaway of the year. The future two-time Cy-Young award winner spent the majority of his 1962 season in Clinton and went 4-7 with a 3.56 ERA and 93 strikeouts. McLain will be in Clinton at the game to sign autographs and meet fans for a bobblehead giveaway that has been nearly 60 years in the making.
     
    Both bobblehead giveaways will be given to the first 750 fans through the gates.
     
    Stay Late Saturday
     
    A staple of summer Saturday nights along the Mississippi River will return with the "Stay Late Concert Series." The LumberKings season will bring in some of the best bands and musical talents in the area on six different nights in 2019. Every Saturday home game from June 1st through August 31st will feature a different musical act that will get fans on their feet in the Beer Garden following the game.
