The Wings host the New York Yankees top-affiliate, Scranton/WB RailRiders, on two occasions next season: June 22-24 and July 30 - August 2. Meanwhile, the Pawtucket Red Sox (Boston) come to town for three separate series: May 18-20, July 4-5 and August 21-23.

As announced earlier this season, Thursdays Are For The Plates! Rochester will take the field as the Plates for all 10 Thursday home games next season and for the first time in 2018 on Thursday, May 3 at 7:05 pm. More details on Plates days/nights to be announced throughout the offseason.

The Wings are home for 12 games in April, followed by 14 in May, 14 in June, 12 in July, 15 in August and 3 in September.

The Triple-A slate takes a three-day hiatus for the All-Star Break July 9-11 in Columbus, OH.

A complete lineup of promotions, including fireworks, giveaways and autograph appearances will be announced early next year.
