Sox Scribbles: Special 5:05 PM Gate Opening Tonight!
The Colorado Springs Sky Sox have announced that there will be a special gate opening on Friday, August 5th before the Sky Sox 7:05 PM game with the Nashville Sounds. With Friday being the last time that fans will be able to see Rockies superstar Carlos Gonzalez in a Sky Sox uniform this season, the team is opening the gates an hour earlier at 5:00 PM so that fans can watch CarGo and his fellow Sky Sox teammates take batting practice at Security Service Field. Batting Practice for the team will begin at 5:15 PM and fans are encouraged to come out early and what the boys of summer take their cuts.
The game will begin at 7:05 PM with Gonzalez scheduled to play the entire contest in his final rehab start with the team. Following the game, the Sky Sox will be launching one of their trademark Friday Fireworks Shows. Tickets can be purchased online on www.skysox.com, over the phone at (719) 597-SOXX or in person at the Sky Sox Box Office.
