The Altoona Curve are pleased to announce that an appearance by Pittsburgh Penguins right-winger Pascal Dupuis will headline the fan experience at Blair County Ballpark on Thursday, August 26 at 5:30 p.m. in a twin bill against the Richmond Flying Squirrels.
Dupuis will sign autographs on the concourse for 90 minutes during the game and throw out the nightâ€™s ceremonial first pitch. Dupuisâ€™ appearance at BCB is made possible through a partnership with the Altoona Trackers, Glacial Energy, and Advanced Chiropractic.
â€œAt first viewed as a secondary addition in the Marian Hossa trade, Pascal has become a fixture on Sidney Crosbyâ€™s line,â€� said Altoona Curve General Manager Rob Egan. â€œWith the popularity of hockey growing in our part of the region given the Pensâ€™ recent success, it makes perfect sense to welcome in one of the more popular members of their roster.â€�
In addition to Dupuisâ€™ appearance, fans can also enjoy the final Thirsty Thursday promotion of the 2010 season where 16 ounce Yuengling draft beers will cost just $2 and 22 ounce fountain sodas just $1.50.
