WILLIAMSPORT, PA – The Williamsport Crosscutters are looking for community service projects for players in and around the Williamsport area this summer.

During the 2013 season, each Crosscutters player is required to perform a minimum number of hours of service to the community as part of the Philadelphia Phillies “Step Up” program which began in 2012.  In April and May, Phillies farm clubs performed 349 hours of service to their communities.

“Our players have always gotten out in the community to senior center, kids camps and many other locations,” said Cutters Vice-President Gabe Sinicropi.  “While our players will continue to do those appearances, they are in addition to the community service projects as part of the “Step Up” program.”

Non-profit or community organizations that could use assistance with any project are encouraged to contact Sarah Budd, the Crosscutters Director of Community Relations, at (570) 326-3389 or sarah@crosscutters.com.  Requests are considered on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to the Cutters game schedule.

Opening Night 2013, presented by Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania & KISS 102-7 takes place on Tuesday, June 18 and will feature a schedule magnet giveaway for the first 2,500 in attendance, a chance for fans to trade in old Williamsport Outlaws gear for a new Cutters t-shirt and other opening night festivities.

Season tickets, bonus books, group packages and single game tickets are currently available and can be purchased online at www.crosscutters.com or by calling the Cutters Hotline at (570) 326-3389.
