Walsh Jesuit, Massillon Washington Set to Face off at Canal Park July 18
(AKRON, OHIO) - The Akron RubberDucks are thrilled to bring another Senior Night celebration to Canal Park this summer as the Walsh Jesuit Warriors and the Massillon Washington Tigers on July 18. This edition of Senior Night features two schools with rich histories in Stark and Summit counties and will begin with first pitch of the nine-inning game at 7:05 p.m. at the home of the Akron RubberDucks.
Due to the high school baseball season being cut short due to the COVID-19 outbreak, each team will be able to celebrate Senior Night in a memorable way as players will have their pictures on the video board and pregame celebrations will commemorate the occasion. Post-game fireworks for this event will begin shortly after the conclusion of this game.
"We are thrilled to give these student-athletes one more opportunity to play together this year and to see our community come together in this special celebration for the Class of 2020," said RubberDucks General Manager Jim Pfander, "We have been working hard to offer safe events at Canal Park this summer, and we can't wait for our community to be able to see these athletes compete in a safe, socially-distant setting."
The Akron RubberDucks will continue to follow all social distancing protocols as outlined by Gov. DeWine, Mayor Horrigan, and state and local health officials. The attendance for this event will be limited to 1,000 fans at Canal Park, socially distanced within the seating bowl.
