Knights Asking Fans to Name “All Knights Stadium Team”

Voting Will Take Place at CharlotteKnights.com Beginning on Monday

Fort Mill, SC Over the past 23 seasons, 770 different players have called Knights Stadium home. Prominent Major Leaguers like Jim Thome, Manny Ramirez, Luis Castillo, Cliff Floyd, Brian Giles, and others, all wore the Knights uniform over the course of that 23-year span. Now, through the team’s official website and Facebook page, the Charlotte Knights are set to give fans a chance to name the club’s “All Knights Stadium Team”, which will be revealed on Opening Day, Thursday, April 11 at Knights Stadium — the final opener in the stadium’s rich 23-year history.

Jim Thome and Charlie Manuel are two of the most recognizable Knights in team history.
