(Reading, PA) - The Reading Fightin Phils will lend a hand in the battle against all types of cancer on Wednesday, July 8th, with custom jerseys and an appearance from former Philadelphia Phillie Mickey Morandini on behalf of the Darren Daulton Foundation. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. against the Portland Sea Dogs.
During the game, R-Phils players will be wearing special jerseys which feature the names of people who have battled any form of cancer.
Fans can take part in this tribute with a limited group package - the first 25 groups of 20 or more people who purchase tickets to the July 8th game can choose to honor a loved one by having the name of a cancer victim or survivor featured on one of the R-Phils in-game jerseys, for no additional cost.
After the game, a special post-game jersey exchange will take place, with the 25 honorees or their families receiving their individual game-worn jersey from the R-Phils player on the field.
Groups are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible, as this opportunity is limited to only 25 honorees. Fans can do so now by submitting an online reservation at https://www.milb.com/reading/forms/cancer-night.
In addition, the first 2,000 adults in attendance will take home a Mickey Morandini Fightin Cancer Bobblehead, thanks to Roland, Rick and Stock Attorneys at Law.
Morandini will be in attendance in support of the Darren Daulton Foundation, whose mission is to provide financial support to families that are experiencing financial challenges due to treatment of a malignant primary brain tumor diagnosis. Morandini, Daulton's former Phillies teammate, will be on hand to greet fans and sign free autographs.
