Rays manager to visit WBS

Hazelton, Pa., native and Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon will be in attendance when the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins face the Albany Devils on Monday, December 19, at 7:05 p.m. at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza.

Maddon will be signing autographs on the concourse from 6:00-6:50 p.m. and also dropping the ceremonial first puck for the night’s contest.

Tickets to the autograph session can be purchased for $5 through the Penguins front office at (570) 208-7367 and include an 8 x 10 photograph of the reigning American League Manager of the Year. All proceeds from the autograph session will go to benefit Maddon’s Hazleton Integration Project (HIP).

The project’s mission is to provide a suitable location within the city conducive to creating opportunities for economically disadvantaged children to participate in a variety of no-cost or low-cost educational, cultural and athletic activities.
