We love these promotions: The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (Class AAA; International League) are holding a What If Night in 2014, complete with Trolley Frogs uniforms.
Trolley Frogs was one of the finalists for the SWB team name. On Aug. 8 the RailRiders will take the field in Trolley Frogs colors and uniforms, giving fans a glimpse of what might have been if Trolley Frogs won the fan vote to name the team a year ago instead of RailRiders.
“Our first season at PNC Field was great,” said RailRiders president/GM Rob Crain. “But that was truly just the start. We are committed to enhancing our fans’ experiences every year. And we think this promotional schedule loaded with giveaways will be a big step toward just that.”
The team will also take the field with other alt uniforms throughout the season. Outdoors Night (April 18), will include an appearance by Mountain Man himself from Duck Dynasty. The RailRiders will wear special jerseys to match the theme as well. Some of the unique pieces of the 2014 puzzle include 25th-anniversary jerseys that incorporate the colors and logos of all three SWB eras (Red Barons/Yankees/RailRiders). The team will wear those jerseys on June 7.
