PA Game Commission/State College Spikes Announce Two-For-One Deal

May 5, 2010

HARRISBURG, Pa., May 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Coupling two of America’s favorite pastimes – baseball and hunting – Pennsylvania Game Commission and the State College Spikes officials today announced that fans who bring their 2010-11 Pennsylvania hunting or furtaker license to the Medlar Field at Lubrano Park Box Office will receive one free outfield bleacher ticket with the purchase of a full-price outfield bleacher ticket. This offer is only available in the outfield bleacher seating area, based on availability, when the Spikes’ season begins in mid-June.

“This agreement has provided an added value to the price of a Pennsylvania hunting and furtaker license,” said Carl G. Roe, Pennsylvania Game Commission executive director. “We are pleased that the State College Spikes recognizes the importance of our license buyers to wildlife management, as well as the economy, of the state and the State College region, by offering this discount.”

“The State College Spikes are proud to partner with the Pennsylvania Game Commission to offer fans another way to enjoy Central Pennsylvania’s Best Family Value during our 5th Anniversary Season,” said Spikes General Manager Jason Dambach.

While the first home game for the State College Spikes is set for June 19, Game Commission hunting licenses for the 2010-11 seasons go on sale beginning June 15.

The State College Spikes is the Class A-Short Season Affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates, and has its field on Porter Road in State College. For more information and a schedule of games, visit the State College Spikes’ website (www.statecollegespikes.com).

On April 12, a similar arrangement with the Altoona Curve was announced by the Game Commission (see News Release #032-10 in the “Resources” section of the agency’s website – www.pgc.state.pa.us). Under that agreement, fans who bring their current Pennsylvania hunting or furtaker license to any Wednesday home game, now through Aug. 25, will earn a $1 discount on grandstand tickets.
