Why You Should Go To This Game:  10 Good Reasons Right Here

What’s Different This Year:  Yes, we’ve seen this show before–kind of.  One thing I noticed that’s a bit different is the “chirping” (still in hockey mode..) by both teams over social media.  It started yesterday morning with a wager between IronPigs clubhouse manager Jason “Jay” Ross and Reading’s clubhouse manager Andrew “Nelly” Nelson.  At stake is free dessert for the opposing team, I understand.  Then, some of the players got involved.  Tyler Henson and Brock Stassi in particular.  Bragging rights, certainly at stake if not more:  I’m predicting some spirited play tonight!

Worried About The Rain?  Click here for rain policies, and here for advanced strategies.  Because of the exhibition nature of this game, I wouldn’t be surprised if they just called it if it’s a wash over there, but if there’s a chance I think they’ll wait and try to get it in.


See you at the park,
