Dans Playoff Tickets Now Available
Danville Dans are in the Prospect League Playoffs!
The first-half winners will host Game 2 of the best-of-three Division Series at Danville Stadium on Thursday, August 7. They will play the winner of the 2nd half of the season. (If the Dans win both halves, then the 2nd place overall team will be the Dans opponent.)
Game 3 - if needed - will also be played in Danville on Friday, August 8.
The winner of the West Division will host the first game of the Championship Series on Sunday, August 10.
Tickets for the playoffs can now be purchased for $4 - a $2 savings over the gate price. Playoff tickets would be good for any post-season game hosted by the Dans. Play-off tickets can be purchased at the ticket desk during any remaining Danville Dans home game.
Driver becomes part of the team
BY AARON GRAFF email@example.com
Bus drivers don’t usually practice baseball, but some do.
Dave Youngdahl is no ordinary bus driver for Campbell Bus Lines. He has transported multiple teams in the Prospect League including the Danville Dans. He was the regular Dans bus driver through the first half of the season, and even took infield and batting practice with the team.
Youngdahl spent 10 years as the technology coordinator for Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV before becoming a bus driver. He said he looked for work for a couple of months after losing his job, and his son reminded him he always talked about driving a bus to Disney after he retired.
Youngdahl decided to start his retirement early.
