KINSTON, N.C. — The Down East Wood Ducks played in and won their first home game Tuesday in 612 days.
Then the rain came Wednesday and stopped the team’s run at least for a day. Now, the Wood Ducks and Mudcats are slated to play a doubleheader Thursday starting at 5 p.m.
Also, the Wood Ducks have announced there will be a free Covid vaccination clinic at Grainger Stadium on Saturday.
StarMed Healthcare will be at Grainger Stadium offering free Covid vaccinations starting at 5 p.m. when gates open and will last until 8 p.m. The vaccination area will be located on the grass area, inside the stadium behind the first base grandstand.
Anyone coming to the game can get the Johnson & Johnson vaccination, free of charge and anyone receiving the vaccine will receive a free meal voucher which is good for a hot dog, bag of chips, and drink.
