KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Tennessee Smokies announce the inaugural #SmokiesDay will be taking place on Wednesday, February 17, 2021. In conjunction with Random Acts of Kindness Week, #SmokiesDay is all about making fans simple wishes come true.

On #SmokiesDay Homer Hound will be in Sevier, Knox, and Jefferson Counties trying to fulfill fans’ wishes. If fans have a request for Homer, they can Tweet, direct message, or email what they need, and their location so Homer can fulfill the wish.

Items Homer may deliver could include but is not limited to coffee, meals, free merchandise, or tickets. Aris Theofanopoulos, Director of Marketing and Entertainment explained, “Everyone deserves to be treated to something nice, and we thought this would be a superb and unique opportunity to bring smiles and excitement to our community. Baseball is back, so let’s celebrate.”
