The team’s primary sponsor is Penny Knight – Nike’s Phil Knight’s wife. The team has been a club for a quarter century, but has been in Corvallis for eight seasons.
On Saturday night, the first 1,000 kids through the gates get a free Nike T-shirt. And for every product fans wear with a Nike swoosh on it, they will get a raffle ticket for a chance to win other Nike prizes.
“So besides the free Nike gear and the free T-shirts for kids, we are playing the Wenatchee Applesox,” said Bre Kerkvliet, General Manager for the Knights. “They are probably one of the best teams in the league, so it will be some great baseball.”
First pitch is at 6:40 at Goss Stadium.
