Event Information

First Pitch and National Anthem 
There will be a special Union Strong ceremony at the beginning of the game, and we are excited to have IBEW Local 3 member, Kyle Viverito perform the national anthem. Also, be sure not to miss New York State AFL-CIO President Mario Cilento throwing out the first pitch!

Warning Track Salute  
Union members and their guests are welcome to join us for a Warning Track Salute. We will begin lining up at the Left Field Ramp inside the Left Field Gate by 6:15 p.m. The line closes at 6:30 p.m.  We will be escorted through the tunnel and onto the field for the singing of the national anthem, then escorted back upstairs to the main concourse in front of section 135.

Free T-shirt  
Please remember to pick up your Union Strong T-shirt before the fifth inning at the Group Sales Redemption Booth located on the Field Level behind Section 130. T-shirts can be redeemed by scanning your digital ticket.
