The Reading Fightin Phils are changing their name to the Reading Whoopies for the 16th annual morning game vs. the Akron Rubber Ducks. The reason behind this whoopie-pie inspired event is to honor the traditional Berks County dessert, and the history of the Pennsylvania Americana Region.
The Reading Whoopies players will be wearing uniforms that resemble the creamy pastry. Their baseball caps will have brown panels with a steam of white cream running through the middle.
In additon, we are giving away an America’s Classic Ballpark seat cushion to the first 2,000 fans through FirstEnergy stadium’s gates. Be sure to be one of the first ones here!
Wait there’s more…
