A new era of baseball and entertainment for Danville and the Southside will officially begin on Thursday, June 3, at American Legion Post 325 Field in Dan Daniel Memorial Park, when Danville hosts Opening Night of the 2021 Appalachian League season. The Appalachian League, powered by USA Baseball and Major League Baseball, features a 54-game season that will showcase the nation’s top freshman and sophomore baseball prospects.
The soon-to-be rebranded Danville Baseball Club will host 27 home games from June-August, providing unique and unmatched, affordable, memorable, family-friendly entertainment for all members of the community. The fan-friendly schedule features 21 of 27 home games on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, including an Independence Day Celebration on Saturday, July 3.

“After more than 18 months without fans in the ballpark, we could not be more excited to open the 2021 Appy League season here at home, setting the stage for a summer of memory making unlike any seen before,” General Manager Austin Scher said. “This is a phenomenally exciting time to be a baseball fan from the Southside, and to a part of this community. June 3rd can’t get here fast enough!”
Danville Baseball Club continues to prioritize the health and safety of our fans and community, complying with all state and federal ordinances and preparing the ballpark as a COVID-safe environment per recommendations of public health officials.
