ARKANSAS TRAVELERS OPENING GAME
7:10 p.m. Dickey-Stephens Park. $6-$12.

Man, can you believe it's already baseball season again? It seems like only a few days ago that I was watching the Cardinals win the World Series. Maybe it's the fact that we didn't have a winter this year. Or perhaps it's simply that as the cosmos continues its incomprehensibly massive expansion further and further into the realm of the unknowable void, time itself is speeding up, imperceptibly at first, but increasing exponentially. Either way, time flies, huh?

Anyways, the Arkansas Travelers make their return to Dickey-Stephens Park this week for a three-game series against the RockHounds of Midland, Texas.

In a couple of weeks, the promotional giveaways get rolling, starting with Mike Trout Pinstripe Jersey Replica Shirt Night on April 21. Mike Trout Bobblehead Doll Night is May 19. You can get a planter kit on Go Green Sunday, April 22, or Travs Tube Socks on July 14. Probably the biggest giveaway — Clunker Car Night — is Aug. 17, followed by pre-game Midget Wrestling on Aug. 18. This year's concerts include Band of Heathens on June 15, Honeytribe on July 21 and Walter "Wolfman" Washington on Aug. 4.

But even without any promotions or concerts or giveaways or doo-dads you can always count on the cheap fun that is minor league baseball. Affordable admission? Reasonably priced beer and snacks? An uncomplicated, almost guaranteed good time? Sign me up.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
