‘Cats to Host Wofford at Cannon Ballers’ New Stadium
KANNAPOLIS — The Davidson baseball team will host Wofford at the new Atrium Health Ballpark, home of the Single-A Kannapolis Cannon Ballers, March 30 at 6 p.m., the Wildcats and Cannon Ballers announced Monday.
Tickets will go on sale March 25 at noon. Fan capacity will be limited to 30 percent, and fans will be required to adhere to local COVID-19 guidelines. Tickets are $10 and will be sold through the Cannon Ballers at kcballers.com or by calling 704-932-3267.
“We are beyond excited to host our neighbors from Davidson College later this month,” said Cannon Ballers general manager Matt Millward. “Our community is filled with passionate alumni, and we’re confident that Atrium Health Ballpark will provide the perfect setting for a Wildcats home game.”
Davidson coach Rucker Taylor and associate athletic director Dick Cooke toured the ballpark in the fall with Millward and Cannon Ballers operating partner Scotty Brown. Taylor said he was blown away by the facility.
“It’s a professional playing surface surrounded by great sight lines in a perfect location,” he said. “The baseball infrastructure is well thought out, and there are a ton of amenities for fans. The excitement the front office has is real, and we’re incredibly excited to have an opportunity to play in this park and hope we can make it a yearly staple of our schedule. Having a game this year is even more special, and we hope it gives the Kannapolis and Davidson College communities a chance to get outside and enjoy a night at the ballpark.”
Atrium Health Ballpark is located at 1 Cannon Baller Way in Kannapolis. The Cannon Ballers broke ground on Oct. 30, 2018.
The Wildcats and Wofford are meeting twice on the diamond this spring, including tomorrow night in Spartanburg.
