FUTURE YANKEES VISIT PELICANS FOR BATTLE OF THE BEACHES - Myrtle Beach and Charleston square off in exhibition game on April 5

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - For the very first time, future New York Yankees will visit TicketReturn.Com Field at Pelicans Ballpark when the Myrtle Beach Pelicans host the Charleston RiverDogs, Class A affiliate of the Bronx Bombers, on April 5 at 6:05 p.m. for the Battle of the Beaches exhibition game.

The Pelicans' "opener before the opener" (Myrtle Beach starts the regular season on April 6 at Lynchburg) gives fans on the Grand Strand their only opportunity to catch those future Yankees stars in Myrtle Beach. Buoyed by baseball's third-best farm system according to Baseball America, the Yankees figure to stock the RiverDogs with a plethora of talent. Outfielder Estevan Florial, infielder Nick Solak and pitchers Drew Finely, Freicer Perez and Taylor Widener are each Top 30 Yankees' prospects who figure to spend at least part of the year with Charleston.

Widener, in particular, has some unique connections to the Palmetto State. Born and raised in Aiken, S.C., Widener pitched at the University of South Carolina before getting drafted by the Yankees in the 12th round of the 2016 draft. In his first pro season, he compiled a 0.47 ERA in 38.1 innings across two levels, yielding just 17 hits (4.0/9) while striking out 59 (13.9/9).

Wednesday's Battle of the Beaches game is a Wiener Wednesday, meaning fans can enjoy buy-one, get-one-free Hebrew National hot dogs. For both Battle of the Beaches and the entire 2017 Pelicans' home schedule, tickets are available at www.MyrtleBeachPelicans.com/Tickets.

The 2017 season will be the 19th season for the Pelicans franchise and third as the Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Chicago Cubs. For information on tickets to see the Pelicans in 2017, please call (843) 918-6000, e-mail info@myrtlebeachpelicans.com, or visit www.MyrtleBeachPelicans.com.
