Fishing and Baseball: Great American pastimes
celebrated by the Harrisburg Senators with discount game tickets
June 17, 2013
HARRISBURG, Pa. (June 17) - The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) and the Harrisburg Senators are teaming up to provide a special night at Metro Bank Park this Friday, June 21. It’s titled “Outdoors Night” and provides baseball fans with an opportunity to participate in a variety of outdoor activities within the park that evening. In addition to activities and information from PFBC staff at the park, all Pennsylvania fishing license holders will be eligible for a ticket discount for June 21, July 18 and August 22 games.

“Fishing and baseball are a natural fit. Both provide great family fun, and we’re happy to be partnering with the Harrisburg Senators to provide this opportunity to Pennsylvania anglers,” said PFBC Executive Director John Arway. “In addition, the evening event provides an opportunity for baseball fans to learn more about what the Commission does and how both fishing and boating may just be their next recreational sport. What better place to enjoy both than a baseball park in the middle of the Susquehanna River!"

Fans with a Pennsylvania fishing license will receive $2.00 OFF Reserved, Box, Field Box, and Dugout Box seats on Outdoors Night by showing their fishing license at the Box Office. The ticket discount is also valid for families of license holders. To pre-purchase tickets, visit and enter the word OUTDOORS in all capital letters in the “Special Offer Code” text field. Then click the SUBMIT button next to the code and then click on the “Box” ticket option (blue plus sign). From there, the section and ticket quantity can be selected.

All seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, and only orders that are purchased together can be seated together. Discounted tickets cannot be purchased by phone, and there are no refunds or exchanges for tickets purchased.

“Outdoors Night” game time is at 7 p.m., and the gates open at 5:30 p.m. on June 21.
