(Sugar Land, Texas, July 19, 2018) - The Sugar Land Skeeters today announced that they will cede home-field advantage to the Road Warriors on Thursday night for the finale of their seven-game series at Constellation Field. It will mark the first home game for the Road Warriors in the franchise’s seven years of existence.
Skeeters President Jay Miller, in conjunction with Atlantic League President Rick White, elected to make the move as a kind gesture to the Road Warriors, who are slated to play all 126 regular-season games this year without a home ballpark.
“The Road Warriors have an incredibly tough job playing all their games on the road and we figured this was the least we could do for all the hard work they’ve done to help keep the league running,” Miller said. “We pride ourselves on being gracious hosts and we wanted to do our part to help make their grind a bit easier.”
Some of the features for Thursday night’s contest will include the Road Warriors getting their own walk-up music, which they have yet to be afforded during the regular season, along with batting in the bottom half of innings. First pitch for Thursday night’s contest is set for 7:05 p.m., with Skeeters right-hander Konner Wade set to face off against Road Warriors left-hander Andres Caceres.
