Nice milestone: the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (Class AAA; International League) have already exceeded 2011’s number of tickets sold, with over 300,000 ducats purchased for PNC Field’s inaugural season.
“This is a solid first step for our team and demonstrates our community’s interest in restoring our baseball games to the top of the list for fun, affordable family entertainment,” said Rob Crain, team president/GM. “We still have higher goals in mind to reach as the year continues, and we firmly believe those goals will also be achieved.”
