Sadler and Bodine will join Clint Bowyer and the rest of Team Dover in an attempt to avenge a loss in last year’s game to Team Pocono, which will be captained by Kevin Harvick, and also feature Coulter and Buescher.

Throughout both the softball and baseball games, both tracks will be promoting and giving away tickets to their NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races which take place on Sunday, June 2 at Dover and Sunday, June 9 at Pocono.
Additionally, fans are encouraged to bring their old and unusable mobile devices to the ballpark, where they will be recycled properly. Any fan who recycles their phones by dropping them off at the track’s display table inside Metro Bank Park, will be automatically entered to win an autographed Sprint helmet signed by Kevin Harvick after he won the 600-mile NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in Charlotte (N.C.) in 2011.
The tracks have also teamed up to offer an all-new ticket package that includes a ticket for each of the tracks’ spring NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races — June 2 at Dover, June 9 at Pocono — as well as a hot dog, beverage and souvenir program for each race. The package costs $158 as the Monster Mile and The Tricky Triangle are only 158 miles apart.
