TUCSON, Ariz. The Arizona Heat of National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) announced this afternoon that the team will host a Fireworks Extravaganza immediately following their home game with the California Sunbirds on Saturday, July 31.
The fireworks show will be a full-length production and will be similar to one you would see on the Fourth of July. The players and coaches of the Heat will enjoy the fireworks from the stands, in a unique opportunity for fans to interact directly with the players.
Game time for Saturday is scheduled for 7:35 p.m. PDT with newcomer Danielle Henderson expected to take the mound for the Heat. She will most likely be opposed on the mound by Everyday Jodie Cox. Henderson is 2-0 since being acquired 10 days ago in a trade with the Akron Racers.
The game with the Sunbirds begins a mini three-game home stand for the Heat. The series is important for the Heat, as they trail the New England Riptide by 3.5 games for the final playoff spot in the league.
