The Hannibal Cavemen open the regular season in Springfield with a game against the Sliders on May 27. The first regular season home game is Saturday, May 30, against the Terre Haute Rex. Home games will begin at 6:35 p.m. this season with gates opening at 5:35 p.m. each night.

According to Deron Johnson, Hannibal Cavmen director of marketing and operations, the team will be bringing a number of new features to Clemens Field in 2015. There will be a Summer Saturday Concert Series, featuring a band after each Saturday home game. During concert nights, concessions, including beer sales, will be open as late as 12:30. New menu items, including a “walking taco,” are being added to the concession stand in 2015. The Cavemen will also be featuring Family Fridays, with family style promotions and concessions, and Super Sundays with free admission for kids and military. The biggest change will be lower ticket prices, dropping to as low as $3 for kids general admission and $5 for adults.
