The Harrisburg Senators wanted to play baseball this summer. But when MiLB games were officially canceled, the front office switched gears to find ways to stay active in the community. Senators games are packed with family-friendly entertainment, and that tradition carried through to events like the Ballpark Summer Movie Series and family sleepover at FNB Field. Families sat in the outfield (at safe distances of course) to enjoy movies like A League of Their Own and Avengers: Endgame. The staff also planned events in cooperation with other businesses like a joint effort with Water Golf to create a 36-hole miniature golfing experience on City Island.
It truly isn't summer without baseball on city island. When outdoor youth sports got a green light, it was a chance for summer teams to showcase their skills on one of the best playing surfaces in the nation. The Senators staff worked with event operators to host safe events and deliver some great memories to athletes who lost their school seasons and/or parts of their spring and summer play for other organizations.
Had an awesome experience yesterday, back in my homestate, at a field I played some of my minor league career in..— Dan Cevette (@DanCevette) August 19, 2020
I hope all the players received the opportunity they came for, & that they thanked their parents for the day spent w/ us.
On to the next 👊 @prepbaseball #BeSeen pic.twitter.com/Fmgh5Mtdwt
The Senators are always generous with their time and talents in the community. Fundraisers supported the Central PA Food Bank, United Way and more.
We're all looking forward to the day baseball is back on City Island, but in the mean time we are all so proud of our hometown team for stepping up in challenging times!
