The Charlotte Knights’ final full season in South Carolina opens April 11 against Gwinett.


The Chicago White Sox’ Triple-A affiliate 2013 will start the season on the road at Gwinnett April 4-7 and Norfolk (April 8-10) before a six-game home stand at Knights Stadium April 11-16, including an 11:15 a.m. game on April 16 against the Durham Bulls.


The Knights broke ground last week on BB&T Ballpark near Bank of America Stadium and are expected to open the facility in 2014.


The 72-game home schedule includes 13 fireworks shows – 11 on Saturday nights – and will host three fireworks shows in April. The annual Fourth of July fireworks show will take place on July 3 after the Durham Bulls game.


The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees will make their lone trip to Knights Stadium April 27-30 and the Pawtucket Red Sox visit from May 10-13. The Knights will celebrate Mother’s Day with a 2:15 p.m. game on May 12.


The last fireworks show of the season will take place on Sunday, Sept. 1. The regular season finale is Sept. 2 – Labor Day – against the Gwinnett.


Season tickets are available by calling the Charlotte Knights at (704) 357-8071 ext. 2106. An early buyer rate is available until Sept. 30 and offers benefits like VIP parking, invitations to special events, and an unused ticket program. They are also the best way to get priority selection of seats at BB&T Ballpark.
