The Capital BlueCross "Live Fearless" Outstanding Student Program is a unique incentive-based program designed to recognize and reward hard-working students. Through the program, students are given an opportunity to celebrate their achievements with their families at a designated Fightin Phils home game.  

Each student who participated in the program during the 2015 season received two tickets to a game, a pre-game meet-and-greet with a Fightin Phils player, individual recognition during a pre-game ceremony, and an Outstanding Student medal from the Crazy Hot Dog Vendor. 

For each ticket purchased or redeemed through the Capital BlueCross "Live Fearless" Outstanding Student Program, the participating school received $1 back. 

The Capital BlueCross "Live Fearless" Outstanding Student Program is a five-year program that runs through the 2019 season. Schools can sign up now for the 2016 season by contacting the Fightin Phils Director of Educational Programs, Music, & Game Presentation Todd Hunsicker at 610-375-8469 x.206 or by e-mail at thunsicker@fightins.com.
