It’s a known fact that baseball is one of America’s favorite pastimes. Who wouldn’t want to watch some live baseball, eat a hot dog, and end their night with fireworks? This is all possible at the TicketReturn.com Field on Tuesday, July 3! Come cheer on the Pelicans Baseball team as they beat up on the Red Sox. The game begins at 7:05 p.m. with a fireworks show following the game.
