DAY-NIGHT DOUBLEHEADER ANNOUNCED FOR JULY 1
12:05 p.m. Start Time for Game One is the Result of a June 4 Postponement
(Allentown, Pa.) – As a result of a rainout on June 4, The IronPigs and Pawtucket Red Sox will play a day-night doubleheader on Sunday, July 1. A separate ticket will be required for entry to each of the two nine-inning games, which are scheduled for 12:05 p.m. and 6:35 p.m., respectively.
Tickets for the newly-announced Game One on July 1, as well as all future games at Coca-Cola Park this season are available for all upcoming IronPigs games and can be purchased in-person at Coca-Cola Park, by calling (610) 841-PIGS or online at ironpigsbaseball.com. Prices for single-game start as low as $7 for General Admission, granting fans access to the Capital BlueCross Lawn seating area, the brand-new bar at the Red Robin Tiki Terrace & Oasis along with standing room only areas. Field Level reserved seats are just $10. Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance as Coca-Cola Park was Minor League Baseball’s most visited venue in 2011 with seating capacity reached or surpassed during 60 of the club’s 68 home dates.
Only a limited number of Field Level tickets remain for the 6:35 p.m. game on July 1 that features a post-game fireworks show presented by Ford. Promotions and activities for Game One will be announced shortly and be made available at ironpigsbaseball.com.
Fans that are still holding tickets from a rain out this season may exchange each ticket for a ticket of equal or lesser value to any remaining 2012 regular season game at Coca-Cola Park, including the brand-new 12:05 p.m. game on Sunday, July 1. All ticket exchanges must be made in-person at the Coca-Cola Park Ticket Office (no phone or internet exchanges). Ticket exchanges are subject to availability. Fans with additional questions are asked to call (610) 841-PIGS (7447).
IronPigs full-season (Club, Suite, Front Row & Field Level) ticket holders will have the benefit of receiving a complimentary ticket in their same seats for the newly-announced 12:05 p.m. game. Tickets can be picked up in-person at the Coca-Cola Park ticket office or printed via the ticket holder’s online account. Full-season ticket holders with tickets cards will have these complimentary games automatically loaded onto the cards and need to take no further action to enjoy this outstanding benefit.
IronPigs 18- and 36-game ticket holders will receive correspondence shortly for how to secure prime seating for Game One of the doubleheader.
Hospitality areas, including the brand-new Red Robin Oasis along with the BSI Dugout Suites, PenTeleData Party Porches, the PPL Picnic Patio and the IronPigs’ Team Suite are on sale now for the newly-announced 12:05 p.m. game. Book your group in these spectacular areas today by calling (610) 841-PIGS (7447).
Please note that all gates will open at 11:05 a.m. for Game One. For Game Two, the Main Gates open at the regularly scheduled time of 5:15 p.m. Club Level patrons may enter the Club Level gates beginning at 5 p.m. Since a day-night doubleheader constitutes two separate games, all fans must exit Coca-Cola Park at the conclusion of the first game of the doubleheader.
This day-night doubleheader marks just the second in franchise history and the first since a Coca-Cola Park one-day record of 17,006 fans attended a pair of games on July 3, 2009.
Fans are reminded that there are three entry points for parking and are encouraged to use the Dauphin Street entrance when traveling from downtown Allentown. In addition to the Dauphin Street entrance, entry to Coca-Cola Park can be gained off American Parkway and Union Boulevard. Preferred/Handicapped Parking access is available via American Parkway only.

Don’t forget to ask about the all-new four-person “islands” in the Red Robin Oasis located directly above the left field bullpens. Each island is covered underneath a thatched roof and includes a circular half-table, cocktail-style seating for the four fans in the party and wait service.
The Lehigh Valley IronPigs are dedicated to providing family-friendly entertainment and are the only Minor League team to offer bubbles to fans entering the AT&T Plaza and balloons for all children exiting Coca-Cola Park.
