The Charlotte Knights new BB&T Ballpark will have an attraction outside the stadium walls.
The Knights announced Tuesday that the Fuzzy Peach, a Wilmington-based frozen treats store, will open in August outside the new uptown baseball park.
The Fuzzy Peach will be open year-around behind the right-field area of BB&T Ballpark. That means the store, which offers frozen yogurt in waffle cones and cups, will overlook the new Romare Bearden Park.
Fuzzy Peach was started in 2010 by three college roommates in Wilmington and now has 40 locations in eight states. The uptown store will be next to the Knights team store, which also will be open throughout the year.
The Fuzzy Peach is a family-oriented business and is a perfect fit for the Knights, said Knights executive vice president Dan Rajkowski.
The Charlotte Knights play their first game at the stadium at 7:05 p.m. April 11 (a Friday night), against the Norfolk Tides.
