KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The Kansas City T-Bones have announced their 100-game schedule for the 2017 season, which will be the club’s 15th in Kansas City.

“It’s always an exciting time for us when the schedule is released, but with this marking our 15th season in Kansas City, we’re especially looking forward to fun…well done in 2017,” said T-Bones president Adam Ehlert.

After home exhibition games on May 10, 11, 14 and 15, the T-Bones open their 15th regular season with a six-game homestand, beginning Friday, May 19, against Lincoln. That’ll be followed by three games against Gary SouthShore.

The 2017 schedule includes Independence Day and Labor Day games at home, with the T-Bones playing host to Sioux Falls on the Fourth of July and ending the regular season on Labor Day against St. Paul.

“Baseball and Independence Day go together,” said T-Bones vice-president and general manager Chris Browne. “Home games on July 4 have become a tradition with the T-Bones and our city, so CommunityAmerica Ballpark is definitely the place to be for fireworks.”

That July 4 game against Sioux Falls is during one of two seven-game homestands for the T-Bones, their longest stretches at home in 2017. Besides July 3-9 against Sioux Falls and Sioux City, Kansas City plays host to Fargo-Moorhead and Sioux City during June 19-25. Kansas City has a stretch of 10 home games at the end of July, sandwiching the American Association All-Star break on July 24-25.

All 11 American Association opponents, including the league’s newest addition, the Cleburne (Texas) Railroaders, will visit CommunityAmerica Ballpark in 2017. Additionally, the T-Bones will travel to each during the season.

The month-by-month breakdown of the 50 home games: May (6), June (13), July (17), August (10) and September (4). The T-Bones will have nine weekend series at home, which is the same as last season. Their total of 30 home games in June and July is four more than they had in 2016.

“Having the bulk of our home games in June and July is great for families, kids, and all of our fans overall,” Browne said.

The Monday through Saturday games will start at 7:05 p.m., with first pitch for the Sunday games at 1:05 p.m. The three exceptions will be June 7 (11:05 a.m.), Sept. 3 (7:05 p.m.) and Sept. 4 (1:05 p.m.).

Full season and nightly promotions will be announced later this offseason, as will more information about the team’s 15th anniversary.

Full and half-season ticket packages, as well as flex plans, are on sale now. Group ticket packages will be available in early December. Single-game tickets will go on sale in March. Parking for T-Bones games will remain free in 2017.
