The most familiar face of the Mississippi RiverKings, Sheldon, made his mark at the brand new store opening of Fred's Super Dollar, located at 7141 Winchester Blvd. in Memphis.

Sheldon mingled with store associates, as well as hung out with local school children and guests who had made the visit to the store's grand opening. Fred's Super Dollar, which was founded in Memphis over 65 years ago, is a prominent corporate sponsor of the Mississippi RiverKings. 

"As an enthusiastic supporter of our community, Fred's welcomes this terrific opportunity to be involved with something that brings children and sports together," Director of Marketing for Fred's Inc. Ursula Roman said. "Kids are an indispensable part of our community and education, and athletics and fitness are an essential part of their growth. We are pleased and eager to join the RiverKings in a program that benefits our community in this way."

The RiverKings kick off their 21st anniversary season at home against the Augusta RiverHawks on October 26 at 7:05 p.m. Single game tickets are on sale now on Ticketmaster.com and at the Landers Center Box Office.

The Mississippi RiverKings are supported by their community partners, season ticket holders, fans, and by program-related investments of the Maddox Foundation, an independent private foundation based in Hernando, Miss.

Can't wait for the season to get started. We absolutely love shopping at the Fred's location in East Prairie, Missouri. We have a house in E.P. and it is stocked full of stuff we got at Fred's. GO Riverkings!!
