Recently, Champ the Mascot for Wilkes-Barre Scranton Yankess visited the students at Wyoming Area Catholic school to make a huge announcement. On August 22, 2008 the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankess and the Diocese of Scranton will have their second annual “Diocese Night” at the PNC Field. The game will begin at 7:00 p.m. against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the top farm club of the Philadelphia Phillies. There will also be a post-game fireworks display. Order forms went home with the oldest child or can be picked up at the school office.
Each 300 level ticket will come with a play ball game program and a free Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankess Hat. A portion of the proceeds from each ticket will benefit schools and churches in the diocese.
