Joliet Slammers Host 'Lemont Night' on Aug. 10

The Lemont High School band will perform during the game, which will recognize local organizations and businesses.

Lemont residents, organizations and businesses are invited to enjoy an evening of baseball next week at Silver Cross Field in Joliet.

The Joliet Slammers baseball club is hosting "Lemont Night" on Friday, Aug. 10. The team will take on the Rockford RiverHawks at 7:05 p.m.

The band will perform the national anthem prior to the game, as well as "God Bless America" and the seventh-inning stretch.

Aug. 10 is also Beatles Night for the Slammers, so fans should expect plenty of classic tunes throughout the game, according to Eric Esposito, group sales manager for the team.

The game will also include a 50-50 raffle to benefit the Lemont-based Hope and Friendship Foundation, and will conclude with a fireworks show.

Esposito, a Lemont native, said the game is a great summer activity for families and businesses alike.

"The fireworks are awesome, and the fact that it's Beatles Night will be really fun," he said. 

officials are encouraging residents to "adopt a family or friend" by donating tickets for those who cannot afford to go to the game. Tickets are available at the Lemont Township office, 1115 Warner Ave.

Invidual tickets are available for $10. Group packages are available for the following rates:

  • $90 for 10 tickets
  • $200 for 25 tickets
