HyVee will host Mustangs Fan Fest Tuesday, May 28.
(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)— The St. Joseph Mustangs look to kick off their 11th season with the annual Fan Fest celebration Tuesday, May 28th at St. Joseph Hy-Vee.
Food specials, national anthem tryouts, and autographs highlight this event. Admission to the event is free. Mustangs fans will have the opportunity to meet and get autographs from the entire 2019 Mustang roster. A live press conference will begin at 5:30, where fans will also have the opportunity to ask questions of players, the coaching staff and the front office.
“This will be the first chance for St. Joe to see our players, but also for our players to see St. Joe,” said Mustangs GM Ky Turner, “It’s not too often you’ll find the entire team outside of Phil Welch Stadium, but we’re going to bring the fun festive game-like atmosphere to this event. You might find us throwing some t-shirts into the crowd, dancing with our mascots, or other surprises we have up our sleeve.”
There will be a play area for children and special prize giveaways throughout the evening. Fans will also get the first opportunity to check out new merchandise for the upcoming season.
Try-outs for national anthem singers will also be taking place at the event at the conclusion of the live press conference.
Additionally, the Mustangs and Hy Vee will partner together for a new weekly promotion: Mustang Mondays. Each Monday from 11am-1pm, you’ll find Mustangs players and staff bagging groceries and assisting customers to their cars, as well as Mustangs staff with a prize wheel with giveaways. Mustangs Mondays will last through the duration of the Mustangs 2019 season.
The Mustangs will begin their search for a sixth MINK League Championship on Wednesday, May 29th. Johnny Coy returns to coach the team for his second season. The Mustangs set a new attendance record in 2018, averaging 2,445 guests per game, good for 8th in the country.
