Baseball, hot dogs and hot rods will come together for a special Kool April Nites Show-n-Shine at Tiger Field.

On Sunday night, April 19, the cars will roll on to the outfield grass at Historic Tiger Field from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., allowing fans to enjoy a uniquely American ballpark experience. It will be the first Kool April Nites event hosted under the lights by the Colt 45s.

“We encourage everyone to come on out for a fun evening of classic cars under the the lights,” said Rick Bosetti, General Manager of the Colt 45s. “We will have a beautiful night with beautiful cars.”

The grill will be fired up with ballpark fare, and the beers will be flowing for adults, as the Colt 45s show off the latest improvements to the facility that hosts 40 home games during the summer collegiate baseball season. The evening will include live music from the Main Street Band, as well as special raffle opportunities for game tickets, team gear and more. There is no charge for entrance to the event.

Fans will be able to meet the coaches and mascot Homer as part of the non-profit Kool April Nites. Since 1990, Kool April Nites draws classic cars and enthusiasts from around the west, with proceeds from official events raising $43,000 for local organizations in 2019 alone.
