The South Bend Silver Hawks, a Class A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks, swoop down on their foes with a flurry of fastballs and swinging bats. Instead of digging a tunnel directly to the pitcher’s mound, fans can catch one of seven home games from sturdy box seats that offer stately views of the infield. This year, first baseman Yazy Arbelo has led the slugging stats with 27 homers and 86 RBIs over 120 games. In 83 innings, southpaw David A. Holmberg has logged 81 strikeouts and cultivated a microscopic 2.39 ERA in a petri dish. Fans can also enjoy nonathletic festivities at the ballpark, including fireworks and a concert on August 26, Canines at the Cove on August 27, and an autograph session with the team’s stunt doubles. Meanwhile, a new downtown entrance greets visitors at Coveleski Stadium, where they can look for their likenesses on a recently installed jumbotron. As one of the only Minor League fields that features cleat-gripping turf, the Cove enables lightning-fast sprints and prevents the Hawks from floating away.
