If you've never been to a ballgame game in Reading, this is the season to do it.
Besides a stable of horses that projects to include top prospects Cole Hamels, Gio Gonzalez and Scott Mathieson, along with top catching prospect Jason Jaramillo, the Reading Phillies are featuring perhaps the best promotion I can ever remember.
The team will be giving away collectable pint glasses at all 11 Friday night home games, featuring 11 legendary players along with the team’s 40th anniversary logo.
Yes, indeed. The lost art of the adult promotion is back! The pint glass giveaways are for a limited number of adults ages 21 and older and compliments of All-Star Distributing.
The first Friday game is an afternoon game at 2:05 p.m. on April 14, featuring the Ryan Howard pint, pictured above, sponsored by Yuengling. I can't think of a better reason to hock off work. Here's the rest of the schedule:
Also returning to every Friday home game is the popular Classic Harley Happy Hour. Gates to the Classic Café, located in the right field food court, open earlier than FirstEnergy Stadium’s main gates. Happy hour features live music before and after the game.
