With diverse backgrounds and experiences in professional baseball, the RailRiders Speakers Bureau can offer a guest speaker to local clubs, civic groups or non-profit organizations at no charge. Your group can learn what goes on behind-the-scenes at PNC Field and within Minor League Baseball from one of our front office executives.
