Something new this season is the Biscuits vision HD scoreboard. That new screen debuted at the Max Capital City Classic, now Biscuits fans will experience it for the first home game.

"It's completely different. You really have to come out here and see it to appreciate the difference between what it was in the past and what it is now," Biscuits Radio Broadcaster Joe Davis said.

Officials say for the first time in the Biscuits history, the team will play 15 straight home games.

"I know we average about 4,000 fans a game and we're always in the top three in the league," Davis said.

Davis says there are more than a dozen MAX firework spectacular shows throughout the season., plus, other promotional specials like Military Wednesday and Dollar Dog Tuesdays.

"We've got the Thirsty Thursdays concert series that will be most Thursdays throughout the summer," Davis said.
