The Joliet Slammers have additions to their 2014 menus that are offering foods from Italian beef to homemade pizza. Nick Semaca, one of the team’s owners, “I guarantee our ballpark will be the No. 1 restaurant opening in Joliet in 2014. You guys will love it, bottom line.”
For this new kitchen the Slammers have decentralized their kitchen and added new registers. Along with that they have hired 63 employees just for the food and beverage departments. There will also be The Suite Spot, which is new to the park, that offers upscale, individualized food and drink offerings, including wine, for suite-level fans, according to The Herald-News.
The Slammers are offering a variety of daily specials for kids, veterans and charities according to General Manager Chris Franklin. Friday games will feature fireworks, and the adult ticket holders will be able to use their ticket stubs for $10 of free slot play at Harrah’s Casino.
The Slammers are also planning many special events including:
- July 14 exhibition game against the Dutch National Softball team.
- A concert series on Aug 14 and 15
- Movie nights in May
- The third annual Big Brother Big Sister Big Amazing Race in July.
