The Colorado Springs Sky Sox have announced a special gate opening time on Wednesday prior to the Sky Sox 7:05 p.m. game with the Memphis Redbirds.
Wednesday is the last time fans will be able to see Rockies slugger Jason Giambi in a Sky Sox uniform this season. The gates will open an hour earlier at 5:00 p.m. so fans can watch Giambi and his fellow Sky Sox teammates take batting practice at Security Service Field. Batting Practice for the team will begin at 5:15 PM and fans are encouraged to come out early and watch Giambi and the Sky Sox take their cuts.
The game will begin at 7:05 p.m. Giambi is scheduled to play the entire contest in his final rehab start with the team.
