Fans can bring their cats (on a leash or in a carrier) to the 6:30 p.m. wooden bat baseball game with a $5 “pass paw” donation. The donation and a portion of the ticket proceeds will benefit the Forsyth County Human Society.

In the statement, they say, “The Disco Turkeys encourages all fans to exercise good judgment in deciding if their cat can handle the noise and environment of a baseball game.”

The cats will be celebrated with songs over the stadium speakers at various times throughout the night, including a rendition of “Take Meowt to the Ballgame” in Round 7.

Fan tickets are $8 in advance at discoturkeys.com or $9 at the door. A portion of regular ticket proceeds will also go to the Forsyth Humane Society. The Humane Society will also be giving away cat ear headbands with a donation that fans can wear if they don’t want to bring their cat.

“We’ve wanted to host a cat party since the team’s inception,” said Disco Turkeys co-owner and team president Greg Sullivan. “We look forward to welcoming cats into the ballpark and giving fans here something new to experience. We’re also excited to be working with the Humane Society on this.

The Disco Turkeys will also be working with the Forsyth Humane Society on two dog nights later in the summer, July 14 and 28 at Truist Stadium. The Disco Turkeys open their home season on Friday, May 27 with a Non-Disco Demolition game to promote recycling.

The Disco Turkeys are members of the AAAA and play home games at Truist Stadium in downtown Winston-Salem. Concessions and beer are sold at all home games at Disco Turkeys’ Truist Stadium. Players on this year’s roster come from college teams, including Wake Forest, Appalachian State and East Carolina.
