Tonight is Thirsty Thursday, one of the busiest days by far at this red brick stadium on Downtown Asheville's south side. Some fans come for the baseball, of course, but most people come for the cheap beer - $1 domestics and $2 microbrews. Tickets only cost $6.
Still, the Asheville Tourists have offered plenty to get excited about this season. They have won the past five of six games, cementing their lead in the Southern Atlantic League's Southern Division. Pitcher Jhoulys Chacin has tied for the lead in wins for the league. These sluggers have also played 17 games above the .500 mark.
Last night, they rallied from behind to beat the Rome Braves. The two teams face off again tonight at 7:05 p.m.
