The Harrisburg Senators announced their 2017 promotional schedule today which includes something for everyone in the family.

If you like fireworks, FNB Field is where it’s at with 15 fireworks and flatscreen nights on the schedule.

The Senators open the 2017 season on Thursday, April 6, against the Altoona Curve. That night, fans will receive a preview of several of the Senators daily promotions including Military Monday, Tasty Tuesday, Wet Nose Wednesday, Fireworks & Flatscreens and Thirsty Thursday (descriptions below). The first 1,500 fans 13 and older entering the park receive a Senators Hat. Youth baseball and softball players can get a free ticket to the game opening night if they are in uniform.

The special appearances are highlighted by Steve Hytner (“hack comedian” Kenny Bania) of Seinfeld fame on July 21 as part of Seinfeld Night. For the first time in nearly 20 years, the Phillie Phanatic appears on City Island when he entertains Senators fans with his shenanigans on Thursday, July 20.
