Moosic, Pa. – Wednesday baseball at PNC Field will continue to mean a little bit more in 2017. The SWB RailRiders (Triple-A/New York Yankees) proudly announce the return of a special wrinkle for Wednesday night home games this season, “Pay it Forward Wednesdays”. On these nights the team will donate a portion of walk-up ticket sales to non-profit/charitable organizations.
For those select nights, the designated Community Organization of the Game will receive a donation from a portion of the club’s walk-up ticket sales. The donation structure sits below:
Walk-up Price Amount Donated to COG
$16-Infield Box $5
$15-Field Reserve $3
Eligible beneficiaries must be a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. For more information, groups are encouraged to contact the RailRiders by phone at (570) 969-BALL, by e-mail to RailRiders Director of Community Relations Jordan Maydole (firstname.lastname@example.org) or in person at the team’s PNC Field front office from Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
“The first-year success of the Pay it Forward program exceeded our expectations and the goals our team had set forth,” said RailRiders President/General Manager Josh Olerud. “We are excited to see the growth of the program this season as we continue to serve our community to the best of our abilities.”
Fans will also get an opportunity to taste the best selections of local wineries as part of “Wine and Dine Wednesdays” at PNC Field. Fans 21 years and older have the opportunity to participate in tasting a variety of wines from Bartolai Winery out of Harding, Pa., Grovedale Winery from Wyalusing, Pa., and Barefoot wines. For a $2 flight sample fee, fans receive a one-hour sampling session and a punch card with an exclusive deal from that winery.
