Alfonso Ribeiro, Also Known As Carlton, To Attend Tonight’s Spikes Game

In wonderfully random news, Alfonso Ribeiro of “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” fame will throw out the first pitch and conduct a meet-and-greet at tonight’s State College Spikes game at 6 p.m.

If you know who Ribeiro is, you know him better as spoiled rich boy Carlton Banks from the quintessential 90’s sitcom. Since those days, he’s moved on to hosting a game show, sometimes quite awkwardly, and doing several other shows, but the Carlton role will always be his calling card. As such, the Spikes are going to wear the Fresh Prince-themed jerseys you see above and auction them off after the game for charity. No word on whether Carlton will give us a rendition of the theme song, which is arguably the best song ever written.

Like many Spikes games, fireworks will follow. Tickets range from $6-$12.

I told you Spikes games were underrated! This makes for two pretty unique entertainment options for your Sunday night.
