Reading leads the IronPigs all-time in the 222 Showcase, 6-4, with two cancellations due to rain. The series dates back to the 2008 season.

After Lehigh Valley won three of the first four exhibitions, Reading went on to win four straight meetings before a 5-3 loss on the road at Coca-Cola Park in 2017. While the following year’s event was washed out, the Fightins rebounded in 2019 by topping the IronPigs, 7-3

The 2020 regular season opens at home on Thursday, April 9th with a 7:10 p.m. first pitch against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. Season tickets and mini plans are available now at the Weidenhammer Ticket Office at FirstEnergy Stadium, online at https://www.milb.com/reading/tickets/, or by calling 610-370-BALL.
