——————————

If enough people would be interested, I’m willing to organize a LoHud Yankees Blog group outing for a Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees game this season at PNC Field, located just off I-81 in Moosic, Penn. The stadium is about 70 miles from Binghamton, 120 miles from Newark, 120 miles from Philadelphia and 145 miles from State College.

There are several group outing venues available, but the Coors Light Pavilion would be best for a group of about 20 – 30 people. It’s a multi-level area located down the left field line, and near the Yankees bullpen, offering the opportunity to sit or mingle during the game. A basic package costs about $25 providing each person a game ticket, all the food you can eat (hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken), soda, water and an SWB Yankees cap or program. Adult beverages are available at extra cost from a private bar area within the pavilion. Additional food options such as sausage and peppers, pasta, etc. are available if interested, but would increase the cost.

I assume a Friday, Saturday or Sunday would be best for everyone. At this point the games below are available. Anyone interested e-mail me at yankslifer@yahoo.com as soon as possible at with the date(s) best for you and thoughts/suggestions regarding the various food options. Once I seem to have a consensus I’ll e-mail those interested before I reserve a date and direct everyone how payment can be made. Please include your LoHud blog posting name in the e-mail so once organized I can let everyone know who’s coming.

Here are the dates:

Friday, June 6, 7:00, Norfolk Tides (Orioles) *
Saturday, June 7, 7:00, Syracuse Chiefs (Blue Jays)
Sunday, June 8, 5:00, Syracuse Chiefs (Blue Jays)
Saturday, June 21, 7:00, Toledo Mud Hens (Tigers)
Sunday, June 22, 5:00, Toledo Mud Hens (Tigers)
Saturday, Aug. 9, 7:00, Syracuse Chiefs (Blue Jays)
Friday, Aug. 22, 7:00, Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Phillies) *
Sunday, Aug. 24, 5:00, Buffalo Bisons (Indians)

* post-game fireworks
