PNC Field

Nice offseason promo by the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees (Class AAA; International League): fans are being asked out to the PNC Field construction site to sign a beam to be placed in the ballpark.

Fans will see the signatures once it's put in place in the outfield picnic area.

From the Times-Tribune:

"This will be the first real public event at the ballpark, and I just think it is as cool as heck," said Rob Crain, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre president and general manager. "I've never done one of these before, and I'm really looking forward to it. It's going to be a blast."

The beam-signing will take place from 3 p.m. [next Tuesday] until dusk near the Lackawanna County Trolley Barn. Fans can access the area through the stadium's media entrance on Montage Mountain Road.
