Sunday Maroons Debut on Jackie Robinson Day
The IronPigs are celebrating the legacy of Jackie Robinson on Sunday. You'll want to get to the park early because the first 3,000 Adults 18-and-older through the gates will receive a commemorative glass made specifically for the occasion. Sundays are also the time for Kids Run the Bases presented by Lehigh Valley Children's Hospital. All kiddos will get to run the same bases our IronPigs stars do. Also for the little ones, Tootsee the Clown and Friends are scheduled to appear.
In addition to the commemorative glass, keep an eye out for a 42 flag flying proudly among others in Coca-Cola Park and a few other surprises.
In addition to the day's themes, the IronPigs will be sporting their new maroon Sunday uniforms for the first time during this contest. These uniforms, inspired by the 1979 Philadelphia Phillies' look, were were first announced earlier this week. Maroon jerseys (men's and women's), T-shirts, caps and hoodies are available in the Majestic Clubhouse Store or at ShopIronPigs.com.
The Colour Sound will be performing in the TD Bank Plaza prior to the game and the Lehigh Valley Youth Chorus is scheduled to perform the Star-Spangled Banner.
Plaza gates will open at 12:15 p.m. and first pitch is scheduled for 1:35 p.m.
Here's what to expect for the remainder of our homestand:
4/16 (7:05 p.m.): Youth knit cap (First 1,500 kids 17 and under)
4/17 (7:05 p.m.): Wrestling Night
