Don’t Miss Upstate New York’s Pink The Park In Utica
The American Cancer Society is teaming up with the Utica Blue Sox to raise funds and show support for local breast cancer survivors during their ‘Pink the Park’ game.
The game takes place on Friday, July 21st as the ballclub takes on the Mohawk Valley Diamond Dawgs at 6:45PM at Murnane Field in Utica. The Utica Blue Sox players will be wearing special pink-themed uniforms. Those jerseys will be auctioned off during the game.
