PNC Field Will Host Yankees Old Timer's Game

The New York Yankees host Old Timer's Day every single season that concludes with a game between former Yankees legends on the field at Yankee Stadium. The 2015 version will be a little different as the Old Timers Game will be coming to PNC Field, the newly renovated home of the Yankees Triple-A team the Scranton Wilkes Barre RailRiders. The game will be held on Sunday, June 21 in front of what will likely be a sold out ballpark. The Yankees will still hold their normal and annual game inside Yankee Stadium on Saturday, June 20 so don't fret if you can't make the trip down to Scranton this summer. 

The ballpark in Scranton will also host a meet and greet with autograph signings which will help raise money for Parkinson's disease research making the trip worth it with that alone. Grant Cagle, the Railriders co-managing partner, had the disease hit close to home recently when his friend, and former Yankees World Series MVP, Brian Doyle was diagnosed with the disease last year. Cagle is expecting between 18 and 25 former Yankees players and legends to make the trip for the game inside PNC Field this season with the Yankees offering to bus players from the Bronx to PNC Field if they wanted to participate in both games during the weekend.
