Updates on 2020 Pulaski Yankees’ season

The Pulaski Yankees recently provided the following updates regarding the 2020 season.

The 2020 Pulaski Yankees’ season is still expected to begin on June 22. They are in constant communication with the Appalachian League and Minor League Baseball about the season and will provide further updates as needed.

At this time, the Yankees plan to play the full 68-game slate as originally scheduled. They continue to prioritize the health and safety of their fans and look forward to welcoming everyone back to Motor Mile Field at Calfee Park as soon as it is safe to do so.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, planned upgrades to Motor Mile Field at Calfee Park previously announced on February 13 will not take place for the 2020 season. The seating under the canopy along the third baseline will remain general admission seating for the 2020 season.

The PSK Party Deck will require its own Party Deck GA ticket for the coming season. While additional concessions carts will not be added for 2020, a “Season Ticket Holder Only” window will be added to the main concession stand to accommodate the removal of waitress service in club seating behind home plate. Improvements are continually being made to enhance the fan experience at all concession points of sale.

Ticket prices for the 2020 season will be as follows: $6 general admission, $10 reserved and $12 club. Discounts are available at the box office for seniors (65+) and military members. Children under six years old will receive free admission. Groups of 10 or more fans can purchase discounted tickets in advance only by calling (540) 980-1070 or emailing info@pulaskiyankees.net.

To allow more time for local businesses to evaluate the current economic climate and finalize plans for theme night and giveaway partnerships, the Yankees have delayed the release of the 2020 promotional scheduled to June 1. The on-sale date for single-game tickets has also been pushed back to June 1 at 10 a.m. Season tickets and flex tickets remain on sale online at milb.com/pulaski/tickets.

The Pulaski Yankees and the United Way of Southwest Virginia are excited to announce a new partnership for the 2020 season. Through the multi-faceted partnership, the Pulaski Yankees will assist with fundraising and awareness efforts for the United Way of Southwest Virginia.

“When we first worked with the United Way at their Celebrity Bagging Event last November, I saw a great opportunity for a larger partnership between our organizations,” said the club’s general manager, Betsy Haugh. “Now more than ever is a time for us to refocus on our #CalfeeCares mission, and we are excited to work with the United Way of Southwest Virginia this season and beyond.”

The United Way of Southwest Virginia will serve as the beneficiary of the second-annual Pulaski Yankees 5K run presented by Shelor Toyota scheduled to take place this summer. More information about the run will be announced later this spring as plans are adjusted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The United Way will also be a community partner for the Pulaski Yankees Star Wars Night presented by Collision Plus on August 15.

“United Way is honored to be a recipient of the #CalfeeCares mission. We look forward to cheering on runners in July during the Pulaski Yankees 5K,” said Mary Anne Holbrook, Director of Community Relations for the United Way of Southwest Virginia. “We can’t wait to enjoy a night of baseball with the Pulaski County Yankees supporting our mission.  United we fight.  United we win.”
