The Kansas City T-Bones return home tonight with their best-of-five-games in the American Association Championship Series with the St. Paul Saints, a series currently tied at 1-1.

The T-Bones are playing in their first championship games since 2010.

Friday night the pre-game festivities will include the Falcons Skydivers. Nate Tenbrink, a T-Bones player in 2015 and 2016, and a former player for Kansas State drafted by the Seattle Mariners, and recently playing baseball in Mexico, will throw out the first pitch tonight.

All games this weekend will feature $1.50 hot dogs and $1.50 beers. All tickets are priced at $8, and there is also a special on suite tickets, priced at $10 (minimum purchase of 15).

The game tonight starts at 7:05 p.m. at T-Bones Stadium, 1800 Village West Park, Kansas City, Kansas.

The T-Bones beat Sioux City in the best-of-five-games Southern Division Series with a win last Sunday in Iowa. Then they hit the road and won the opener in St. Paul, 11-4, but dropped game two, 6-0.

The T-Bones hold a franchise best 62-37 record this season. The T-Bones are led by American Association Manager of the Year Joe Calfapietra. Todd Cunningham was honored as an all-star this year and Tommy Collier was awarded Pitcher of the Month in both July and August. Kansas City legend Frank White is the T-Bones’ first-base coach.
