The Lehigh Valley IronPigs will be hosting the Pawtucket Red Sox on April 26th and the teams will be wearing these awesome police and fire department inspired jerseys.
The Allentown Police and Fire Departments will square off in a 90-minute softball game at 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 26, as the IronPigs pay tribute to local police, fire and EMS personnel with a very special, promotion-stuffed Heroes Night at Coca-Cola Park. Both the IronPigs and Pawtucket Red Sox will join in on the festivities during their 6:35 p.m. game that night by donning unique specialty jerseys that promote local Police and Fire Departments.
All gates open at 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 26, but fans are reminded that they must have a ticket to the IronPigs-Red Sox game to gain admittance to Coca-Cola Park for the earlier softball contest.
The specialty jerseys will be auctioned off during that night's game with proceeds benefitting Cops 'n' Kids Lehigh Valley, the Boys & Girls Club of Allentown and IronPigs Charities.
Heroes Night will also allow fans the opportunity to honor the local police, firefighters, EMS personnel, and military members who serve and protect the Lehigh Valley and the entire nation, in a pre-game on-field ceremony. As part of the Heroes Night activities, the Color Guard ceremony will be performed prior to the game by the Allentown Police.
The entire day will be filled with fun events and promotions including the IronPigs/Red Sox game, fireworks, and an afternoon softball game between the local Police and Fire Departments.
Come early and bring your video camera. We all know what happen the last time we saw Police and Fire Departments competing in a charity event.
Get ready, Allentown.
