MOOSIC, PA (August 21, 2019) - The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, Triple-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, are pleased to announce their 2020 All-Star season schedule. The 2020 season will open on Thursday, April 9, at PNC Field against Buffalo, kicking off an eight-game homestand to begin the campaign.

"Our fans love and support the future big leaguers that play every game at PNC Field, so it will be an extra special treat to have a week packed full of festivities like a celebrity softball game, the home run derby and, of course, the Minor League's premier mid-summer classic where our fans get to see some of the best young stars in baseball right in their own backyard."
