GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas – The Grand Prairie AirHogs, the 2011 American Association Champions, have set a league record with a 17-game home winning streak and plan to continue those winning ways in the second half of the season. Currently, the AirHogs’ lead the league with a 37-21 record. Beginning this Friday, July 20 at 7:05 p.m., the team starts a seven-game home stand against the Kansas City T-Bones and El Paso Diablos.
“Under new ownership last year, we won the championship in front of our fans at QuikTrip Park,” said General Manager Craig Brasfield. “With this home winning streak and 20 games at home in August, we are hoping for back-to-back championships.”
This record-setting season, the AirHogs have seen attendance climb more than 15 percent with more outreach to the city and surrounding areas, as well as creating great ticket packages and events.
“We have worked hard this season and are proud of this record; however we know we are going to have to keep the momentum going and plan to continue our winning ways through the next home stand,” said Scott Berry, president of the Grand Prairie AirHogs. “We would like as many fans as possible to join us during this upcoming home stand, so beginning July 20, we are going to unveil many family-focused and affordable ticket packages that baseball fans can get nowhere else.”
