Grasshoppers: One Millionth Fan This Weekend

The Grasshoppers only play two games this weekend; but at some point, probably Sunday, the ONE MILLIONTH FAN will enter the gates of the new stadium.  I couldn’t find the numbers, but, on the last home game’s broadcast, Andy Durham said that they were about 11,000 short of one million.

Short of a thunderstorm,  they should hit the mark around 4:50 PM on Sunday.

Saturday night looks to be another crowded night with a DOUBLE PLAY – A Game Against the league-leading West Virginia Power and Fireworks after the game.  A win against the Power would help Greensboro in their hopes to win a first-half victory – which places the team in the post-season playoffs.  Greensboro is currently 7-1/2 games back with 16 games in the first half remaining.

Sunday is also the Miss Babe Ruth figurine giveaway. Looks like a fun weekend for all.
