As the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders prepare for the 2022 season, the team has unveiled its custom jersey nights slated for the upcoming schedule.

The season begins on the road on Tuesday, April 5, with the home opener one week later at PNC Field in Moosic. In addition to the daily promotions already announced, the RailRiders will wear five custom jerseys this season, and each will be auctioned off to benefit local charities.

As part of a celebration of the Armed Forces, SWB will wear red, white, and blue tops over Memorial Day weekend. The players will wear these jerseys again in July, and the custom tops will be auctioned off over Independence weekend.

Villains be warned – Marvel’s Defenders of the Diamond Night is Friday, June 3 at PNC Field (235 Montage Mountain Rd., Moosic). The RailRiders will wear custom Captain America-themed jerseys, plus Captain America himself will be patrolling the concourse.

Pride Night is slated for Thursday, June 16 with a jersey auction after that Thirsty Thursday game.

Paradise is found at PNC Field on Friday, July 15. That RailRiders will once again wear Margaritaville-inspired Hawaiian jerseys. Waste away and search for that lost shaker of salt and be sure the fireworks are to blame after the final out.
