Now that summer is in full swing, so is America’s favorite pastime, baseball. Near the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania, our favorite local team is the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre or SWB RailRiders. There is nothing better than spending an evening with friends and family, watching a thrilling game and eating some hot dogs with a cold drink. Whether you are a local to the area or just visiting, carving out some time for the SWB RailRiders will guarantee not only you, but a group of your friends, a fantastic evening.
When thinking about booking a trip to see the SWB RailRiders at PNC Field, you truly have a variety of options open to you. For the month of August, the team has games available on weekends as well as weekdays which can accommodate any schedule. Weekend games start at 1:05 pm while the weekday games start at 7:05 pm. The ticket prices are amazing for the seats that are available. Starting behind the plate are the Infield Boxes which run at $12 per person. On the outer sides of those along the 1st and 3rd bases are the Field Reserved seats which are $10 per person. If you enjoy the outfield, there are 3 sections of seats, the Bleachers at $8 per person, the RailHouse Bar at $12 per person and the HomerZone at $7 per person. Parking at the field is free and is open 2 hours before the game. If you plan on tailgating, make sure to park in one of the designated areas.
Hosting an event or party is a breeze when it is being put together by the SWB RailRiders. There are multiple options for any group size and budget. The first option is a VIP Suite. You and your guests will get out of the heat and into a beautiful air conditioned room with a view of the game. There are a multitude of catering options to feed everyone and you get access to the Mohegan Sun Club Level Lounge. Another outdoor option is the 3rd Base Party Deck. It can hold from 40-60 people which will give everyone amazing views while still enjoying the outdoors. If neither of these options appeal to you, you can take charge and build your own party.
The SWB RailRiders love their pint sized fans. Every Wednesday kids eat free at the PNC Field which is always a blessing to parents. Be sure to sign them up for Quill’s Kids Club. For only $20, your child will get a shirt, free Lawn Seat admission to Wednesday night Kid’s Eat Free games, a free Fun Zone pass for the season, an end of the season party with the SWB RailRiders team, and much more. Just like adults, hosting a birthday party there is easy as well.
