Fortnite is a wildly popular online social video game that has taken over Twitch.tv, a livestreaming video platform favored by gamers. One of the most prolific players of Fortnite online is Omaha-native DrLupo, who will be making an appearance at the game.

EPIC, the publisher who created Fortnite, calls the game an arena battle royale. In the game, players parachute from a large flying bus onto a map which is littered with loot and weapons. The players then battle until only one player or team is left. As they battle a mechanic in the game forces them closer and closer together, to keep the speed of the game constant.
There have also been instances of items that disappeared from the Fortnite game showing up in real-life locations.
First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.
