Woodbridge, VA---The Potomac Nationals will celebrate Father's Day a week early in a big way on Kids Day Sunday, June 11th during their 1:05pm Autism Awareness game against the Down East Wood Ducks (Texas Rangers) at Pfitzner Stadium.
With gates to The Pfitz set to open at 12:00pm, the first 1,000 fans (500 adults and 500 children) in attendance and into the Home of the Potomac Nationals will receive a replica jersey of the 1989 Prince William Cannons Carolina League Championship courtesy of the Potomac Nationals in either a youth size or an adult size.
The Prince William Cannons won the second league title in Potomac Baseball history.
The Potomac Nationals are proud to honor this epic past franchise achievement with another premium giveaway for the ages as the P-Nats continue to celebrate 40 seasons of Potomac Baseball with The Red, White, & Blue faithful.
Early Father's Day with the P-Nats at The Pfitz is presented by: Virginia Department of Social Services-Putative Father Registry.
All Dads and their children are invited to The Pfitz to create lasting memories on Early Father's Day.
In fact, kids will be able to play catch with their father on the field after the game as part of the festivities of the day.
Meanwhile, one-of-a-kind Autism Awareness multi-colored puzzle piece jerseys will be worn on the field by P-Nats players and coaches courtesy of Cardinal Management Group and then the uniform tops will be autographed after the game by the player or coach who donned the jersey.
The unique Autism Awareness jerseys will be auctioned off to the highest bidders during the Sunday standoff sponsored by Cardinal Management Group. All the proceeds from the Autism Awareness jersey auction will go to benefit Autism Speaks.
Fans with the winning bids will be able to come onto the diamond after the game and take a picture with the player or coach who wore the jersey during the game.
According to Autism Speaks, the puzzle piece pattern which will be featured on the P-Nats' Autism Awareness jerseys reflects the complexity of the autism spectrum. The different colors and shapes represent the diversity of the people and families living with the condition. The brightness of the ribbon signals hope - hope that through increased awareness of autism, and through early intervention and access to appropriate services/supports, people with autism will lead full lives able to interact with the world on their own terms.
It's also another Kids Eat Free Sunday at The Pfitz sponsored by: Little Caesars. The first 250 kids aged 12 and under will receive a voucher for a free Little Caesars cheese pizza at local participating Little Caesars locations in addition to a free hot dog at the Main Concessions Stand in the Extreme Custom Collision Café Area at Pfitzner Stadium.
Face painting will take place on the Pfitzner Stadium concourse and there will be a loaded Kids Zone with the Mind Winder amusement ride from Fun Services of Virginia.
