Baseball is back in Central Texas! The Round Rock Express are gearing up for their 19th season and are looking to make 2018 another fun-filled, action-packed season of fun at Dell Diamond.
The Express kick things off with “Spring Training for the Fans” at their annual Fan Fest on Saturday, March 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The family-friendly event is free and open to the public. Bring co-workers, friends, family, or even the whole neighborhood to Dell Diamond as the stadium will transform into an interactive fun zone for fans of all ages during the event, covering all levels of baseball fandom.
The annual celebration of America’s pastime allows fans to get back into the baseball spirit by enjoying a day full of entertainment. Fans attending this year’s event will receive the opportunity to throw heat in the Express bullpen, tour the clubhouse, and participate in a hot dog eating contest. Craft beer samples, as well as a tasting of the Hall of Fame Grille menu in the Intel Club, will be available. Fans can gear up for the 2018 season through deals available in the Railyard Team Store.
The Express, in partnership with the Nolan Ryan Foundation, are launching a new line this spring, giving fans a first look at the new merchandise at Fan Fest. The line, which includes custom shirts, caps, jerseys and more, features the iconic 34 and his high leg kick pitching stance. A portion of the proceeds from the line go to the Nolan Ryan Foundation, benefitting youth sports and education in Central Texas.
