The Williamsport Crosscutters have announced their 2018 promotional schedule as they prepare to celebrate 20 seasons of making memories at BB&T Ballpark at Historic Bowman Field
The 20th season celebration begins on Friday, June 15 on Opening Night, 2018 with fireworks after the game and Cutters schedule magnets for all fans in attendance
"This season, many of our giveaways and promotions are tied to our 20th anniversary," said Cutters Vice-President of Marketing & Public Relations Gabe Sinicropi. "Our facility and our business has evolved a great deal over the last 20 years. We are proud of where we are and we're proud of where we've been. We can't wait to celebrate 20 seasons of Cutters baseball with our fans this summer."
In addition to Opening Night, fireworks will light up the sky after Friday night home games (with exception of August 10) along with July 3 and September 1, for a total of seven shows during the season.
In celebrating 20 seasons of Cutters Baseball, Thursday home games will take on a whole new meaning at BB&T Ballpark. The team will celebrate Throwback Thursdays, presented by UPMC Susquehanna. Cutters players and coaches will sport throwback style uniforms in an ode to those worn during the 1999-2007 seasons. The game-worn throwback jerseys will be auctioned off to fans at the conclusion of the season.
Every Thursday game will feature plenty of throwback-themed fun. The Cutters will be bringing back retired on-field promotions that fans will remember from the past 20 seasons and have special appearances from former mascot Rusty Roughcut, along with throwback apparel giveaways for the first 1,000 fans each Thursday including:
