The night will recognize people of all abilities. A pre-game basic sign language training will be available for fans. The game will be stopped to provide an opportunity for Aidan Gowarty, son of an Air Products employee, to go to home plate and hit a home run for people of all abilities. Plans for the evening also include the National Anthem signed as well as the 7th inning stretch. There will also be a "silent inning" eliminating any music or sound effects in the stadium.
During the game, the IronPigs will be wearing jerseys with "IronPigs" spelled out in American Sign Language and the evening will be capped off with an ASL jersey auction.
