Show on the Road!
The Tri-City ValleyCats and Hannaford Supermarkets have teamed up for the second year in a row to host the "Show on the Road" at a Capital Region youth ballgame. The 'Cats and Hannaford will create a family day atmosphere with events that include a picnic, pregame home run derby competition, and entertaining promotions throughout the game.
We recognize the important role that youth sports play in leading a healthy lifestyle, developing skills for the future, having fun, and learning about sportsmanship. We are seeking a league that embodies all of these characteristics and want to know if your league fits the bill!
In order to have your youth league considered for a show worthy of "The Joe," leagues must complete the application and return it to the ValleyCats by Friday, April 4. As part of the application process, leagues must explain how they exemplify sportsmanship both on and off the field.
As part of the "Show on the Road," there will be pregame entertainment, ceremonial team introductions, a live performance of the national anthem, and in-game promotions including fan favorites such as the mayors' race, t-shirt tosses, pony hops and more.
Hannaford Supermarkets will also be on hand to lend support in the league's concession stand and to showcase healthy food and snack options.
The winning league will also be recognized during Youth Baseball Night at "The Joe" which is set for Monday, June 16.
