There are two games to go in the Chattanooga Lookouts' current home stand against the Montgomery Biscuits at AT&T Field, 201 Power Alley. Then it's off to Huntsville for five days before returning next week to face the Birmingham Stars.

Games tonight, July 24, and Friday, July 25, start at 7:15 p.m., weather permitting.

No promotions are scheduled tonight, but four are on the books for Friday, including a youth T-shirt giveaway, Superhero Night (costumes are encouraged) and fireworks.

Friday is also Down Syndrome Night at the Lookouts for the Chattanooga Down Syndrome Society. People who have this genetic disorder, along with their biggest supporters, will parade around the bases before the game (arrive by 6:45 p.m.).

CDSS officials are requesting that anyone going to the game buy $5 tickets in advance by visiting chattanooga (click on Events). The organization will keep $2 per ticket to support local families with Down syndrome. The event also raises awareness of the Buddy Walk, a September fundraiser in which nearly 1,500 people took part last year.

Tickets sold through the Lookouts box office cost $5 for general admission (with $2 discounts for seniors and children). Box seats are $6 and $9. For more information, call 423-267-4849 or visit
