2008 Threshers Home Game Times Set

This post was updated on 11/5/07 at 12:30pm

It looks like the Game Times are set for the 2008 Clearwater Threshers home slate.

There is only one slight change from 2007. Sunday games during the second half of the season will start at 4:00pm instead of 1:00pm.

Here are the regular Game Times for 2008:

Monday - Friday - 7:00 p.m.
Saturday - 6:30 p.m.
Sunday (First Half of Season) - 1:00 p.m.
Sunday (Second Half of Season)- 4:00 p.m.

Note: There are a few Wednesday games that will have earlier starts for Camp Day and other special events.

What do you think about the change on Sundays?

Isn't 4 pm the hottest part of the day?

It might be on some days, not so much on others.

It's hard to compare today to a Sunday back in the summer but, the forecast today has it just two degrees warmer at 4:00pm than 1:00pm. The warmest part of the day today is forecast for 3:00pm. The temperature is forecast to go up a few degrees during the time that the game would be played on a 1:00pm start, and fall several degrees after what would be a 4:00pm start. Again, that's just today's forecast, and I don't know for sure how that would match up for a summer afternoon.

For what it is worth, we had one 4:00pm Sunday game last year and the attendance was good.

I think this is a good move. The 1PM start times on Sundays were rarely packed. This new 4PM start time would open the game up to those folks who may be busy around the Sunday brunch time (Noon to 1 PM) and give them the opportunity to make the game later on.

It's not so much about the difference in temp at 1pm and 4pm. It's the difference in temp during innings 4 thru 9.

Thank you Threshers!

What's on second said...

Thank you Threshers for the later Sunday start. I'm sure that I'll attend some Sunday games this season. I have not attended any 1:00 p.m. games.

Just wanted to clarify something that will likely be confusing this year.

As noted in the post, only the Sunday games in July & August will be set for 4pm starts.

I don't want anyone coming 3 hours late and missing the game in April, May, and June!

I updated this post to reflect a change in our scheduled Game Times. We will now have 4:00pm Games on Sundays during the entire second half of our season.

Aww... I loved the 1pm games. That was the only sun some of us ever get. Oh well, this way, maybe I can hit 2 games on those Sundays by going to either Dunedin or Tampa first.
