Come on out to QU Stadium located at 1800 Sycamore in Quincy, to watch at the Gems battle the rival Illinois Valley Pistol Shrimp. The game starts at 6:35pm with first pitch, but gates open up early for drinks, food, seating, and entertainment at 5:30pm. You will definitely want to get there early for this game, to see Sam and myself throw out the first pitch!

We here at 97.9 KICK-FM really love supporting local, and partnering with the Gems is a great way to do that, because we have a sponsored night at the ballpark this is our opportunity to not only support the Gems BUT to say thank you to you our listeners as well. We have 50 FREE tickets we are giving away to this game, it's a small way for us to say thank you, and you can enter to win some of these tickets now on our KICK-FM Facebook page, by commenting on the Gems Ticket Give Away Video, or just CLICK HERE! 

We will also be giving away tickets leading up the the start of the game on Thursday night, so If you don't win just be listening to 97.9 KICK-FM on Thursday starting at 4pm for details on how you could get into the game for free as well. We really hope you all can join us for some great baseball, and fun with our friends at the Quincy Gems!
