The Burg, SC – The Spartanburgers ended their winning strike last week by notching a road victory against the Owls at McNair Field. With the pressure for a win off their buns, the Beef Boyz of Summer can’t let off any heat as they aim to climb back up the Coastal Plain League West Division Standings. Duncan Park will undoubtedly earn the moniker “Historic” as it will play host to a Spartanburgers’ tribute to the past. Friday and Saturday Nights will both be Sluggers Appreciation Nights, as the Spartanburgers look to honor past teams, raise money for the local African American Community, and inform fans of the great history of this ballpark. Funds raised throughout the weekend will be donated towards the Spartanburg Youth Sports Bureau; this organization is dedicated to focusing the energy of at-risk youth towards positive avenues through participation in youth sports and developing life skills through their offered apprenticeship programs.
Fans can watch the game on FloBaseball.TV, your home for all CPL action.

This will be night one of two of our Sluggers Appreciation Weekend.

Throughout the weekend, the Spartanburgers will be raising funds to benefit the local African American Community by supporting the Spartanburg Youth Sports Bureau.
