Wind Surge 'Road to 10K' aims to end season how it started – sold out
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - It might be hard to believe, but we're about to kick off the last weekend of Wichita Wind Surge baseball for the season.
As the Wind Surge laces up against the RockHounds, the team says it has big plans for its final games.
Wind Surge President Jay Miller says it's called "The Road to 10K."
He said the goal is to completely sell out Riverfront Stadium on Saturday just as it did on opening day.
"We know we're going to hit that 10,000. And it's just going to be a fun night. And some of the staff has never seen a baseball game with that many people, and they're going to understand why I get so excited about it after Saturday," said Miller.
But Miller said the team already has a lot to be proud of. With an increase of about 1,600 fans per game compared to last year, he says the Wind Surge has the biggest attendance jump of any minor league team.
Miller says as he reflects on a successful season, he can't help but feel grateful.
"I'm very proud of Wichita. And having been here the first two years, and then leaving and coming back two years later, like I've said many times, Wichita is everything I thought it was going to be. It's a great baseball town, and it's just gonna keep on getting bigger and bigger. And I'm very excited to be back," said Miller.
If you can't make it Saturday, Miller says there are still plenty of tickets for Friday and Sunday, including back-to-back firework shows Friday night.
