Over here at Foxy 99, we love our friends at the Fayetteville Woodpeckers, and this year we were proud to partner with the team to present the Airborne Appreciation jerseys for the fans.
And a special thanks to our friends at Smithfield Chicken N BBQ, for helping us be out at the game on Saturday, August 19.
It was a warm evening, but the fans SHOWED UP to get their jerseys.
On the field, the Woodpeckers were sporting their specialty Eighty Deuces military jerseys, as they took on the Lynchburg Hillcats.
The Woodpeckers struck early, as Brice Matthews launched a solo home run in the third inning. The lead was short-lived though, as the Hillcats tied it in the fifth. Fayetteville struck back with three runs in the bottom of the fifth, as Luis Baez had a three-run home run.
Unfortunately for Fayetteville, a five-run seventh inning from Lynchburg ended the shot at a win, and the Hillcats took a 6-4 victory.
Here’s a look at a fun Foxy 99 night at the Fayetteville Woodpeckers, for Airborne Appreciation night at Segra Stadium!
