The River City Rascals and the Gateway Grizzlies play their annual cross-town rivalry series over the Fourth of July weekend, and while both may be minor league teams, they're doing it up in major way. All four games (6:35 p.m. Friday through Monday, July 1 to 4) during All-American Weekend include post-game fireworks, plus hat giveaways on Friday and a jersey auction on Monday. Friday night also features a special appearance by Olympic gold medalist and former WWE champion Kurt Angle. All games are at the Grizzlies stadium, GCS Ballpark (2301 Grizzlie Bear Boulevard, Sauget; www.gatewaygrizzles.com). Tickets are $6 to $15, with seats at the picnic tables and party porch from $36 to $55.
