Summertime and the Winning’s Easy: The State College Spikes

This season, the Spikes host 38 regular season home games  — and at every game, there is a special deal, entertainment or giveaway that would entice anyone to head to the ballpark. So, what can you still catch at the remaining home games?

One of the biggest giveaways planned will end the Spikes’ season. On Thursday, September 7, the first 1,000 fans will receive a bobblehead honoring current Pittsburgh Steeler and former Nittany Lion tight end, Jesse James.

The fan favorite Cowboy Monkey Rodeo will return to the ballpark on Saturday, August 12. Additionally, WWE fans will be lining up at Lubrano Park on Friday, August 25, to meet WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Hacksaw Jim Duggan.

In addition to the fun giveaway nights, the Spikes will also host Paint the Park Pink Night on Sunday, July 30, to raise funds and awareness in the fight against breast cancer. Fans can help support The Mount Nittany Health Foundation and its work in battling breast cancer with a pink boxing robe-themed jersey-off-the-back auction. The Spikes will also partner with PSECU to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network with a Salute to Conspiracy Theories Night and jersey auction. The night also includes a tinfoil hat giveaway, plus potential sightings of D.B. Cooper and Elvis!

Our four-legged friends are invited to the Spikes’ games two more times this season — August 8 and September 4 — for the always exciting Bark in the Park games. On August 1 at noon, Ike’s Kid Zone will turn into a waterpark for Super Splash Day.

Throughout the season, the Spikes will host “Half Craft Wednesdays” featuring half-price craft beer drafts from 6-8 p.m., as well as $1 Beer Thursdays with $1 domestic drafts from 6-8 p.m. On Monday Buck Nights during the season, the Spikes will offer $1 hot dogs, peanuts and small sodas throughout the entire game.

There is no better way to spend the summer in Central Pennsylvania than at the ballpark. Whether you are planning to have a date night or bring the entire family, there are great ticket options for any size group.
