The Fisher Cats and Citizens Bank announced today that Manchester South Little League has been chosen as the inaugural winner in the ‘Take the Show on the Road’ promotion. Through a partnership with Citizens Bank, the Fisher Cats will bring their entertainment experience to the fields of Manchester South on Saturday, June 21. Three other leagues – Londonderry Athletic and Field Association (LAFA), Concord Little League, and Hollis/Brookline Cal Ripken – have been awarded consolation prizes based upon the sportsmanship qualities represented by their leagues.
“We received a number of outstanding entries, detailing how the leagues in New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts are not only developing outstanding athletes, but outstanding young people through their programs,” said Fisher Cats President Rick Brenner. “These tales of sportsmanship and integrity highlight the best of youth sports. We are excited to bring our show to Manchester South for a great day of baseball and family fun later this month.”
“Citizens Bank was thrilled to see all the entries highlighting so many healthy, active recreational activities taking place in New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts thanks to youth baseball leagues,” said Joseph Carelli, President, Citizens Bank and RBS Citizens, New Hampshire. “We are proud to partner with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats to bring ‘Take the Show on the Road” to Manchester South Little League and look forward to the event.”
“Manchester South Little League is honored and excited to have been chosen for such a fun, unique promotion,” said Manchester South Little League President Kim Roy. “Sportsmanship and fair play are the guiding principles of our players, coaches, and parents, and to be recognized for those efforts gives us great pride. I know our league will be ready to help the Fisher Cats and Citizens Bank create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our players and fans.”
On June 21, the Fisher Cats will bring their inflatable games, mascot, PA announcer, promo team, and turf manager to the Manchester South Little League Farm League All-Star Game at Precourt Park off South Willow Street. The first 200 fans to attend the game will also receive a Fisher Cats hat courtesy of Citizens Bank.
As consolation prizes, LAFA will receive a free night in a luxury suite at a Fisher Cats game this summer. Concord and Hollis/Brookline each will receive 25 tickets to a game with a VIP Stadium Tour.
Before the Fisher Cats head to Manchester South, the team will be home for a three-game homestand June 17-19 against the Altoona Curve (Pittsburgh Pirates). The series features a baseball giveaway and an Atlas Fireworks Show after the final game on the 19th. Tickets are available by visiting www.nhfishercats.com, stopping by the box office at the ballpark, or by calling (603) 641-2005.
