The Sioux Falls Canaries kick off a big six-game homestand with a three-game series against the Gary Southshore RailCats this weekend at Sioux Falls Stadium. There are only 12 home games remaining in the 2015 season so make sure you don't miss out on any of the fun at Sioux Falls Stadium!  Here’s a quick look at some of the fun to be had at the Birdcage this weekend!


The big weekend kicks off on Friday night with Social Media Night presented by Be Well South Dakota and the final Friday Night All-Star Fireworks Display presented by Sioux Falls Specialty Hospital and Orthopedic Institute.

Charge up your smart phones and tablets before Friday night’s game, and be on the lookout for exciting promotions going on during every inning! The first 500 fans will receive a Foam Hashtag and headphones courtesy of Be Well South Dakota! There will also be a kid zone where kids can test their skills at throwing and hitting!

It’s also Scout night and the Canaries will be honoring Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts during the game and will be watching a movie and sleeping over in the outfield. Scouts can still sign up by calling 336-6060 and ask for Jim by 12:00 PM Friday.  


The Sioux Falls Canaries are hosting a youth baseball camp from 10:00am–1:00pm on Saturday, August 15th at Sioux Falls Stadium!
