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 night’s ceremonial first pitch. Dupuis’ appearance at BCB is made possible through a partnership with the Altoona Trackers, Glacial Energy, and Advanced Chiropractic.
“At first viewed as a secondary addition in the Marian Hossa trade, Pascal has become a fixture on Sidney Crosby’s line,” said Altoona Curve General Manager Rob Egan. “With the popularity of hockey growing in our part of the region given the Pens’ recent success, it makes perfect sense to welcome in one of the more popular members of their roster.”
In addition to Dupuis’ 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.
