Knights Fest set for Saturday

It's baseball season again, and in Charlotte, that means the annual Knights Fest will be held at Knights Stadium in Fort Mill, S.C., from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday -- followed by a scrimmage between the Charlotte Knights and the Winston-Salem Dash.

Knights Fest and the exhibition game both are free and open to the public. (The Charlotte Knights are the Triple-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox.)

Event highlights include:

  • National anthem auditions from 10-11 a.m.
  • Fans can take batting practice on the field from 10:15 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
  • Free hot dogs, hamburgers and soft drinks will be served at the Picnic Grill (on the third-base side) from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
  • Knights players will sign autographs at 1:30 p.m.
  • Stadium tours will be available throughout the day.
