    Will they still honor the over 55 age group with special pricing and activities?

    Promotion, promotion, promotion. I’m excited the Hoots have moved here. I was always dismayed, however, when I talked to people in the metro area over the years who were baseball fans, but had never attended a Rascals game, or were only vaguely aware that there was a minor league team in O’Fallon, or had no idea there was team here.
