JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown Tarp Skunks released their 2022 schedule this week, in what many might call another good omen of spring.
The former Jamestown Jammers took to the field for the first time under a new name last year following a pandemic hiatus. Management expects to see record attendance this year, as even larger crowds are allowed to enter Russell E. Diethrick, Jr. Park.
The team will start play on Thursday, June 2 at 6:30 facing the Olean Oilers at home, with a Tailgate Concert and Festival.
Other notable home games include Friday, June 24 with the Hello Summer Celebration and Fireworks, Sunday, July 3 Independence Day Celebration and Fireworks and Friday, July 22 Christmas in July and Fireworks presented by the local Toys for Tots.
First pitch for games on Monday through Saturday has been moved up to 6:30 p.m. this year, with the exception of fireworks nights and doubleheaders. Fireworks nights will feature a 7 p.m. first pitch, and doubleheaders will begin at 5 p.m. All Sunday games will begin at 4 p.m.
