The season is winding down and the Chicago Bandits have their last homestand this weekend!!! Yes, I know that it’s the weekend of Market Days. Who can really spend two whole days standing at a street festival? No one. Unless you break it up with a little bit of good old fashion fun at the ballpark. No, not Wrigley (though we LOVE our Cubbies), at Rosemont Stadium! The Ladies of the Bandits want to say goodbye until next season by celebrating a few things very close to their hearts.

The Chicago Bandits will be celebrating Pink in the Park Night on Saturday, August 13, the game will feature commemorative pink jerseys, wristbands, and pink bases. Those who attend will have the chance to win a special pink bat in honor of Pink in the Park Night. For this night, and this night only, outfield seats for this game will be just $1.11 (plus taxes) to celebrate their first season in their state-of-the-art softball field, Rosemont Stadium.

The Bandit’s season finale is scheduled for this Sunday, August 14. The Bandits hope to continue their run for the playoffs will be celebrating their fans! The Bandits know that without loyal fans Women’s Pro Fast Pitch wouldn’t be possible. In addition to an exciting game, the Bandits there will be different giveaways during each inning of the game. One lucky fan will receive a pair of season tickets for the 2012 season.

So be sure to clear your schedule and make some time to give these ladies a final cheer before heading to the playoffs! These are the top elite athletes in fast pitch softball. They are in your backyard and no one should pass up the opportunity to see them play. Support for these women now ensures that there will be venues that our nieces, daughters, and neighbors will have to look forward to when they grow up. Players are available for autographs after the game or just a good ‘ole hi five! Don’t forget to call for tickets 1-877-7BANDIT.
