The Revolution Goes Mad

(July 18, 2022, York, Pa.) — Even for the York Revolution, this one is going to be crazy.

York’s professional minor league baseball team will host “Midnight Madness” this Friday, when its matchup against the rival Lancaster Barnstormers will start at 10 p.m. and play past midnight and into the next day, a first for the team and a crazy addition to its 15th season.

“No team in its right mind would start a ballgame at 10 p.m. and actually aim to be playing baseball at midnight,” laughed Revolution President Eric Menzer. “But hey, when people think of baseball madness, we want them thinking of the Revolution!”

Adding to the “madness” is that evening’s giveaway. The first 500 fans through the gates that night will receive an “I Went @*#%^$! Mad with the Revs” shot at the stroke of midnight.

“We figured that the people who are usually socializing in town late on a Friday night are probably the type who’d appreciate that unique giveaway,” Menzer added. “And from the comments we’ve seen on social media, there are clearly a lot of people who like the idea of being part of such a unique event. They’ll be able to say, ‘I was there for a crazy baseball game.’”

The one-of-a-kind game will feature a number of additional pre-game and between-inning additions to mark the occasion:

  • A second WellSpan T-shirt toss will feature shirts with a special glow-in-the-dark design.
  • In addition to the Shipley Grand Slam Inning featured each game with the potential for a $5,000 prize, the Revs will designate a second grand slam inning and award one fan $10,000 if the Revs hit a grand slam in that additional inning.
  • Throughout the game, the Revs’ promotional team will conduct contests and “mad giveaways” announced via the team’s app and thrown into the stands.
  • Breakers Brewhouse will feature happy hour drink specials.

Tickets for Friday’s 10 p.m. Midnight Madness game are available at www.yorkrevolution.com/tickets, by phone at (717) 801-HITS, and in the Shipley Energy Ticket Office at PeoplesBank Park.
