Pittsburgh Pirates To Host Annual Penn State Night To Benefit THON On June 16

The Pittsburgh Pirates will hold its annual Penn State night to benefit THON on Saturday, June 16 when the team takes on the Cincinnati Reds.

Tickets for the game are available now, and a portion of the proceeds from each ticket will go towards THON. Seats in the corner boxes behind the third and first base corners cost $35, while tickets in the outfield grandstands behind each baseline cost $22. All of these tickets include a $5 donation to THON.

The Pirates are one of many teams in the northeast part of the country to help raise money #FTK in the past year. The Philadelphia Flyers, New Jersey Devils, and New York Knicks each helped raise money for THON during their respective 2017-18 seasons.

The game’s first pitch is scheduled for 4:05 p.m. on June 16. PNC Park is one of the most picturesque ballparks in the MLB, so you can enjoy the beautiful view of Pittsburgh behind the outfield walls and support a great cause in the same day.

In the most upsetting turn of events, Mikey graduated from Penn State with a digital & print journalism degree in the spring of 2020. He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard.
