MOOSIC, PA (December 20, 2018) - The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, in partnership with Maines Food and Party Warehouse, will once again offer the Pinstripe Pals program, supporting area youth softball and baseball leagues. Applications are being accepted now and 10 youth leagues will be chosen to receive a sponsorship from the RailRiders and a gift card from Maines.

2019 marks year five of this tremendous program, which includes a $500 sponsorship to teams in the area pay for costly supplies, such as uniforms and equipment. It also includes a $500 gift card to Maines, which can be used to help teams pay for items for concessions, thus raising more money for their team.
