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.
