2019 Allegheny Yinzers Information

New for 2019: The Allegheny Yinzers

The Altoona Curve will have an alternative identity in 2019: the Allegheny Yinzers. The brick and bronze will transform to black and gold.

For seven home games during the 2019 season, the team will receive a complete makeover with new on-field uniforms, videoboard theme, Pittsburgh-style food upgrades and more.

When will we see the Yinzers jerseys at PNG Field?

The Allegheny Yinzers jerseys, presented by Keller Engineers, will appear for a total of seven times on the following dates:

Saturday, April 13, Friday, May 31, Thursday, June 13, Saturday, June 29, Saturday, July 6, Friday, July 26 and Thursday, August 8


What is a 'yinzer'?

The term "yinzer" is a unifying, self-identification for the blue-collar people of Western and Central Pennsylvania. The term comes from the common second-person pronoun "yinz".

How can I get Yinzers jersey?

As it is with all Altoona Curve specialty jerseys, the Allegheny Yinzers jerseys will only be available through the jersey auction. The auction will take place during the last game of the Yinzers rebranding series on Thursday, August 8. The auction will be available for fans in the stadium and for fans at home through the LiveSource App. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Roberto Clemente Foundation.
