“It’s going to be Princesses in the Park night, and it’s not just because Im a big princess fan. but because we can invite people out that don’t normally come to a ballgame,” Theofanopoulos said. “So maybe a family with two little girls, three little girls can come out and see the princesses — the royalty at Smokies Stadium — and then maybe fall in love with America’s favorite pastime.”
