Fort Mill, SC April 8, 2013 – The Charlotte Knights are set to offer fans an exciting new opportunity to become a part of BB&T Ballpark, which coincides with its grand opening in April of 2014. Beginning today, Knights fans can become a part of history by purchasing a commemorative ballpark brick. The personalized ballpark brick will be prominently featured and preserved at the main entrance to BB&T Ballpark in Uptown Charlotte.
“We are very excited about this great new way for fans to become a part of BB&T Ballpark,” said Knights General Manager of Baseball Operations Scott Brown. “Our Commemorative Brick Program will add an exciting and personalized element to our new home in Uptown Charlotte. We are thrilled to be able to provide our fans with a lasting way to become a part of our brand-new ballpark.”
Each of the three brick options include a commemorative brick installed at the main entrance to BB&T Ballpark, located at the corner of Mint Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, along with an individually numbered keepsake certificate. Also, keepsake replica bricks and custom display cases are available for fans interested in proudly displaying a duplicate of their stadium brick at their home or office.
Bricks are slated to be installed prior to the BB&T Ballpark opening in 2014. Prices for brick packages range from $90-$195. There are two different sizes of bricks (4×8 and 8×8). Commemorative bricks can be engraved with up to 15 characters per line. A character consists of letters, numbers, punctuation marks and blank spaces.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Charlotte Knights Charities.
