JAMESTOWN, N.Y. - The Jamestown Jammers will wear throwback uniforms from the 1941 Jamestown Falcons in Friday night's game to honor the 70th anniversary of Russell E. Diethrick Jr. Park.
The Jammers will wear the replica uniforms and hats designed by Wilson and New Era for the game against the Aberdeen Ironbirds Friday. Then, the jerseys and hats will be auctioned off after the game with proceeds going to the Chautauqua County Sports Hall of Fame, which is also the night's sponsor.
The oldest surviving member of the original Falcons and former Major Leaguer John O'Neil will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the game.
Finally, posters that celebrate all 92 program covers that have been produced by the inhabitants of Diethrick Park will be available for $10 apiece with only 100 being produced. The poster also highlights every major league affiliate of the teams at Diethrick Park - the Florida Marlins, Atlanta Braves, Detroit Tigers, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, Pittsburgh Pirates, St. Louis Cardinals and Montreal Expos.
The Jamestown Jammers are currently the short-season single A affiliate of the Florida Marlins, and the team is owned and operated by Rich Products Corporation.
Advanced tickets are available. Gates open at 6 p.m., and first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
