Straight Outta Memphis: Grit and Grind Night at Autozone Park
The Memphis Grizzlies and the Memphis Redbirds announced a Grit and Grind night on Monday, August 31, 2015 at Autozone Park. The Redbirds will take on the New Orleans Zephyrs.
An excerpt from Grizzlies.com:
As part of the special evening, the Redbirds will be wearing commemorative blue-and-gold Grizzlies-themed jerseys on the field. Fans can come away with a jersey by participating in a silent auction beginning when the gates open closing at the end of the sixth inning. Auction winners will be taken onto the field to receive their purchased jersey from their Redbirds player following the game. Proceeds will benefit both the Memphis Grizzlies Foundation and Redbirds Community Fund.
Grizzlies guard Tony Allen will make a special appearance to meet fans at AutoZone Park. The Grindfather will sign autographs on the concourse behind home plate when gates open and throw out a ceremonial first pitch during pregame.
Grizz, the Grizz Girls and the Claw Crew also will be available for photos with fans and participate in special in-game promotions and activities throughout the evening, including special section and row giveaways. Grizzlies Season Ticket Holder MVPs should keep an eye on their email inboxes for an exclusive promo code for discounted ticket prices to Grit & Grind Night.
Co-branded Grizzlies-Redbirds magnet schedules featuring the Grizzlies’ upcoming 2015-16 season schedule will be distributed to 2,500 ticketed fans upon entry.
Other activities include a Grizzlies selfie station and prize wheel on the concourse behind home plate. First pitch between the Redbirds and Zephyrs is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. Gates open at 6 p.m.
