Seven Days of ‘Stormers
Opening Night at Clipper Magazine Stadium is April 28th, but the Lancaster Barnstormers are not waiting that long to begin celebrating a new year of baseball on Prince Street.
For seven days leading up to the home opener, the Barnstormers will be visible around the community with a series of events celebrating the start of the team’s 13th season.
The weeklong baseball celebration will begin with a scavenger hunt on Saturday, April 22. The Barnstormers will be hiding game tickets and team caps throughout the area with clues available through the club’s social handles. To claim an item, people will need to use the hashtag #stormisbrewing.
Sunday’s event remains to be determined. On Monday, the 24th, the Barnstormers surprise fans at an unannounced local sporting event, something they will also do on Wednesday, the 26th. Meanwhile, on the 24th, Cylo might be looking for some new wheels at the Manheim Auto Auction. On Tuesday of that week, the Barnstormers staff will be out stenciling the town with Barnstormers’ logos. Cylo will again be making a separate appearance, heading to Hands on House on Landis Valley Road. While there, the Barnstormers’ lovable mascot will be giving away two free memberships to the Barnyard Bunch, the Barnstormers’ kids club.
On Thursday, the 27th the Barnstormers will be offering some nice surprises through their various social media outlets. Finally, on the 28th, the main attraction arrives with the Barnstormers lifting the curtain on a new season with the festivities of Opening Night and a game against the Sugar Land Skeeters.
“We couldn’t be more excited about the start of the 2017 baseball season and we want to share that enthusiasm with Lancaster,” said general manager Mike Reynolds. “The Seven Days of Stormers seemed like a perfect way to do that heading in to Opening Night. From surprise giveaways to Cylo appearances and more, we want to get out into the community and remind everyone that the Lancaster Barnstormers are back and better than ever. A storm is definitely brewing.”
