Ducks alumni will be interviewed during the Angels Live broadcast with players joining the Fox Sports West and AM830 broadcasts live throughout the game.
A social media takeover will also occur during the night. Thompson will be in control of the Angels’ Snapchat while Ducks players will be using Facebook Live to answer fan questions from their suite. Fox Sports West will also stream batting practice via Facebook Live from the field. Throughout the night, the hashtag #DucksNight can be used by fans to interact with the teams.
In-game entertainment all night at the Big A will be Ducks-themed. Special Ducks animation will be shown on the video boards including blooper reels, recap highlights of both teams collaborating together and a What’s That Song” segment.
The Home Plate area will feature booths setup by both AM830 and the Ducks. The Sports Lodge with Roger Lodge will be broadcast just outside the stadium gates and Ducks sales and street team members will have their own tables nearby. A separate Ducks street team will be at the Centerfield Patio.
