Gates open at 5 p.m. for fans to see part of a team practice. At 6 p.m., players will begin mingling with fans and the night will give way to a fan home run derby with tickets on the line.

As has become tradition, the night will also feature food and live music. Fans can learn at the FanFest how to order food online, a service new to the ballpark this year, according to team president Dave Baggott.

The season begins Friday, June 14, with the first of a four-game homestand against the Grand Junction Rockies.
