ROCHESTER, N.Y. – The Rochester Red Wings open the 2019 home schedule exactly 100 days from today so to celebrate the Wings have released a sneak peek at next season’s promotional schedule. Though not yet finalized, the upcoming promo slate promises to be one of the best in baseball.
All details, including appearances and giveaways, will be announced throughout the winter and early spring. Fans can follow the Wings on Twitter (@RocRedWings) to stay up-to-date on all promotional releases.
The Red Wings have teamed up with the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID) and the Rochester School for the Deaf (RSD) for Deaf Culture Day on April 28. More details on this day will be unveiled in the coming months.
As the Hop Bitters did a year ago, the Rochester Hustlers will return for one night on May 25. The Hustlers were Rochester’s pro baseball team early in the 20th century. A jersey and cap combo along with other merchandise will be unveiled in the spring.
For a second straight season the Wings will hold ROC the ROC Night – a night dedicated to the great city of Rochester – on July 26. The first 2,000 fans will receive a 3’ x 5’ ROC the ROC flag.
Leslie David Baker, also known as Stanley Hudson, visits Frontier Field on July 31 for The Office Night as the Red Wings celebrate one of the greatest TV shows of the last 20 years against, of course, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Other theme nights include celebrating the movie anniversaries of Dodgeball (August 30), Major League (Date TBD) and Christmas Vacation (July 28).
The Wings will honor two Rochester legends with their own bobbleheads this year. Recently retired NHL star and Team USA captain Brian Gionta will have his bobblehead day on August 11 and Uncle Phil – Rochester’s most loveable usher – gets his own talking bobblehead on July 24. The Red Wings will also give away a Plates bobble on August 8.
