MOOSIC, PA - With Opening Day just over 80 days away, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders are pleased to announce their daily promotions for the 2020 season. The RailRiders, the Yankees Triple-A affiliate, begin the 2020 campaign at PNC Field on April 9 against the Buffalo Bisons with a 7:05 PM first pitch.

Geisinger Sunday Family Fundays start the week on the right note. Gates open at noon with an autograph session, presented in part by Allegiant. All Sunday games begin at 1:05 PM, and after the final out, children 12 and younger can run the bases. Select Sundays this season will also feature appearances and giveaways for our youngest fans.

Mondays this season will focus on the great men and women who protect our country; both now and in the past. Every Monday home game is a Military Monday. Members of our Armed Forces, active or retired, will receive one free ticket when they show their military identification card. In addition, all fans can purchase $1 walk-up lawn seats.

$2 Tuesdays return with $2 walk-up lawn seats, $2 Landshark Lagers and a featured $2 concession special each week for two hours after gates open.

Waggin' Wednesdays are back again. Bring your four-legged canine friends to PNC Field for just $1.00 on Wednesday nights with that fee donated to local animal shelters. Each of our ten mid-week games are also Pay-It-Forward nights when portions of walk-up ticket sales are donated to local charities. Our Dollar Dog promotion moves to Wednesdays in 2020. Get $1 Sabrett Hot Dogs all game long every Wednesday this season.

Everyone's favorite game of the week, Thirsty Thursday, features $1.00 specials on Bud Light and Pepsi products for two hours after gates open. Friday nights will serve as the RailRiders top theme nights during the season and will be followed by fireworks during the summer months. Saturdays remain supreme with the best giveaways of the season.

The RailRiders will unveil their theme night plans and full giveaway schedule over the coming weeks.

Gates open one hour before first pitch Sunday through Friday and 90 minutes prior to Saturday games.
