Baseball Season in Lancaster PA

It’s that time of the year for peanuts and cracker jacks, so come visit us here at the Bed and Breakfast and root for the home teams. Adamstown is located in between the Lancaster Barnstormers and the Reading Phillies, so there are plenty of opportunities to catch a baseball game this summer.

The Phillies play at First Energy Stadium and have fireworks most weekends after the game. They also have many theme nights and promotional giveaways throughout the season. Here are a few to keep in mind:

  • Post game concert on May 31st
  • Giveaway on June 5th: Crazy Hot Dog Vendor BBQ Apron
  • A visit from the Phillie Phanatic on July 1st
  • Giveaway on August 25th: Reading Phils Harley baseball cap

Sounds like some great evenings are scheduled, but you might be wondering what the Crazy Hot Dog Vendor is, right? He is a mascot of the Reading Phillies that arrives during the second inning and throws hot dogs into the stands. He wears a bow tie and rides an ostrich named Rodrigo, which makes for a lively performance! Fans adore the Crazy Hot Dog Vendor, and you’ll have to go to a game to see what the craze is all about.

In Lancaster County, you can catch the Barnstormers at Clipper Magazine Stadium. While their mascot isn’t as famous, they do have a red cow named Cylo that gets the crowd mooooving! Here are a few special events to keep in mind for the season:
  • June 2: Star Wars themed fireworks
  • June 21: Toy Story night with appearances from Buzz and Woody
  • July 22: Christmas in July
  • August 24: Elvis themed fireworks

Plan your trip and get your tickets today so you can watch the visiting teams strike out, and cheer our home teams to victory!
