Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive and Dodge!

The Rochester Average Wings host the Syracuse Purple Cobras on Friday, August 30 at Frontier Field as the Wings celebrate the 15th anniversary of the movie. Gates will open at 5:30 with first pitch at 7:05.

The first 1,000 fans will receive a Red Wings dodgeball presented by M&T Bank and The Exchange/Brickwood Grill/Malt + Ember.


Both sets of game-issued jerseys will be auctioned off using the LiveSource mobile app with proceeds benefiting the Red Wings Community Foundation. The umpires will be wearing special ADAA (American Dodgeball Association of America) polos. Both jerseys include the ADAA logo on the sleeve.

After the game and before the fireworks, the Average Red Wings front office staff led by Dan Mason will take on the Syracuse Purple Cobras front office staff in a 6-on-6 dodgeball game on the field. The game will be aired on Facebook Live. Red Wings PxP man Josh Whetzel will call the action alongside on field emcee Grant Anderson.

Fireworks will follow the dodgeball game courtesy of your Local Toyota Dealers.
