As part of a new partnership between the Lancaster Barnstormers and the Lebanon Valley Chamber of Commerce, a free spring training exhibition game will be held on Good Friday (April 15) at Lebanon Valley College’s McGill Field.

The Barnstormers will play against the Black Sox, a training-oriented travel team, with the game scheduled to get underway at 4:30 p.m.

Parking will be available in the LVC lots on the west side of Route 934.

Prior to the game, at 4:00 p.m., the winning Lebanon County-themed name from the Barnstormers’ Rename the Team for a Weekend contest will be announced.

The Lancaster Barnstormers will bear the to-be-announced name on its jerseys the weekend of July 1-3 for a Lebanon County-themed three-game home series against the Staten Island Ferry Hawks, during which Clipper Magazine Stadium will be decked out with displays from Lebanon County businesses.

A networking mixer for businesses in the Lebanon County and Northern Lancaster County areas will also be held prior to the game at LVC, hosted by the Barnstormers in partnership with the Lebanon Valley Chamber of Commerce. The mixer begins at 3:00 p.m. and businesses interested in attending should contact Lebanon Valley Chamber president Karen Groh to RSVP.

The Lancaster Barnstormers are in the independent Atlantic League, an MLB Partner League. The Barnstormers’ 2022 season opens April 21 with an away series against the Gastonia Honey Hunters. The team’s first home game is April 29 against the York Revolution.
