Birds Fans Get Ready For Opening Night At The Birdcage

Posted: 5/18/2018


After months of waiting, the Canaries' 2018 Opening Day has finally arrived! The Birds take on the Chicago Dogs at the Birdcage on Friday night at 7 p.m.

The Canaries are pulling out all the stops for the season opener. The first 1,000 Birds fans through the gates receive a free magnetic schedule, and the Cartwright Brothers will perform a live concert outside the Remedy Pub after the game.

And of course, the Friday night affair finishes off with the best fireworks show in town, courtesy of All-Star Fireworks!

Birds fans can still get their tickets at the Canaries box office or by calling 336-6060.

The Canaries will send starter Grady Wood to the mound for Friday's game. Wood had a stellar season last year for the Birds, leading the team with a 2.71 ERA to go with an 8-3 record.

Friday's game is the first of a three-game set with Chicago this weekend. The two teams square off on Saturday at 6 p.m., and on Sunday at 1 p.m. Make sure to get out to the Birdcage to support the Canaries this weekend!
