On Friday, March 31 at 10 a.m., single game tickets for the High Point Rockers were put up for sale with an interesting pricing twist: Every ticket was discounted at a rate determined by the temperature at 7 a.m.

The Rockers have done this before – it’s called the “Weather or Not” promotion. If the temperature in High Point is 45 degrees on the morning of the promotion, for instance, all tickets are discounted 45 percent.

The one-day sale runs through midnight Friday, March 31.

In 2022, the temperature was 51 degrees – which meant buyers got more than half off the ticket price on all single game tickets sold that day.

The Rockers aren’t expected to repeat the same promotion in mid-August because (1) the tickets would be virtually free, and (2) the season would be almost over.

So those who would like to get a deal on single game tickets need to do so now.

The Rockers’ regular season kicks off on April 28 with a game against the Long Island Ducks and ends on Sept. 17 with another game against the Ducks.

Earlier this year, the Rockers announced that manager Jamie Keefe and his coaching staff – which led the Rockers to the Atlantic League’s South Division Championship last year – are returning for the 2023 season.

This will be Keefe’s fourth season as the Rockers’ manager. He’ll be joined by pitching coach Frank Viola and bench coach Albert Gonzalez.

The non-profit organization High Point Baseball Inc. operates the team that plays in the $36 million downtown ballpark named Truist Point – previously BB&T Point.
