Here is a link to the original story on the team's website.
(Reading, PA) – The Reading Fightin Phils will celebrate and honor veterans and active duty military at FirstEnergy Stadium on Thursday, July 2nd, when R-Phils players will wear custom jerseys featuring the names of current and former military members.
The first 25 groups who purchase 20 or more tickets to the July 2nd game will have the chance to choose any veteran or active duty military member’s last name to place on the back of an R-Phils jersey, for no additional cost.
Each Fightins player will be wearing one of these custom jerseys during the game, with first pitch set for 7:10 p.m.
A special post-game jersey exchange will take place, with the 25 military honorees or their families receiving their individual game-worn jersey from the R-Phils player on the field.
The night will feature free tickets for all active military and veterans, and a ceremony will take place to honor those who have served prior to the game, thanks to Savage 61 Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram and 830 AM WEEU. Fans will also be treated to post-game fireworks.
Groups are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible, as this opportunity is limited to only 25 honorees.
