State College Spikes Announce 2022 Theme Nights & Events

The State College Spikes announced a series of theme nights, giveaways, and events ahead of their upcoming season.

The Spikes will kick things off with their Pride Night on Thursday, June 9, where the first 500 fans in attendance will receive a free Pride t-shirt.

Throughout the summer, the Spikes will give away bobbleheads of beloved Penn State athletes both past and present. The team will honor late Penn State legend Wally Triplett on July 29, while two-time NCAA champion Roman Bravo-Young and former Penn State linebacker Michael Mauti will follow on August 27 and September 3, respectively. The first 1,000 fans at each game will receive the night’s corresponding bobblehead.

The Spikes will host four “Bark in the Park” nights throughout the season at which fans can bring their dogs to the ballpark. Leash up and head to the stands with your pup on June 7, July 2, August 9, and September 2.

On July 9, the Spikes will have an NFT crossover night with the Williamsport Crosscutters, and both teams will adopt a non-fungible token for their mascot for one night only. The Spikes will become the State College DiamondDawgs, while the Crosscutters will temporarily be named the Williamsport Bored Apes.

Additionally, on July 9, Medlar Field at Lubrano Park will host Autism Awareness Night. The Spikes will feature education efforts around the ballpark as well as a sensory adaptation room.

August 28 brings Hockey Night in Happy Valley, and with it, the Spikes will wear specialty jerseys. The new threads will go for bid after the game in an auction presented by PSECU, and all proceeds will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network.
