Pittsburgh Pirates To Host Annual THON Game June 13

For all the Penn Staters living in the ‘Burgh this summer, the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team will host its annual game benefiting THON at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday, June 13. A portion of ticket proceeds from the game against the Colorado Rockies will be donated to THON, always For the Kids.

Tickets are available now using the coupon code “THON”. Seating near the third base corner box will cost $25, with $5 of that donated to THON. Seating near the third base infield grandstand will cost $20, with $3 of that donated to THON.

The Pirates normally aren’t the only professional sports team to raise money For the Kids with a THON game throughout the year. Last year, the Philadelphia Phillies and the Washington Nationals each also hosted a game benefiting THON. So far, the Pirates are the only baseball team to announce a THON game.

Even if you’re not living near Pittsburgh this summer, it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump over to the western side of Pennsylvania to enjoy the incredible view of the city offered by PNC Park — all For the Kids.
