MOOSIC – The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (SWB) RailRiders will feature the Upper Delaware Council (UDC) at their August 1st baseball game at PNC Field in Moosic, PA.

The UDC has reserved a block of seats that are available to transfer through a mobile ticketing system.

At the game, Council representatives will highlight the activities of the 501(c)(3) PA-NY organization and have invited their federal partners at the National Park Service Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River to share important water safety information.
The SWB RailRiders are a Triple-A affiliate of the New York Yankees and Minor League Baseball team of the International League.
The RailRiders introduced their “Community Organization of the Game” program in 2013 to help local non-profit and civic groups raise awareness of their activities through a pre-game interview, an exhibit table on the concourse, an on-air broadcast of the game on Bold Gold Media’s WICK radio stations, and the chance to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. There is also a fundraising opportunity through sponsored ticket sales.
