Reading Fightin Phils
READING, Pa. -

While the Reading Fightin Phils still have plenty of baseball left to play in 2013, they're already looking forward taking the field to next season.

The team announced Friday its schedule for 2014, the Fightin Phils' 48th season at FirstEnergy Stadium in Baseballtown.

The Philadelphia Phillies' Double-A affiliate will open the season at home against the Portland Sea Dogs on April 3. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

The home opener will be the first of 11 games between the Fightins and the Sea Dogs at FirstEnergy Stadium, a season-high among Reading's Eastern League opponents in 2014.

Game times for the 2014 season remain unchanged from 2013. The schedule includes 12 afternoon games, three games starting at 11:35 a.m. on Wed., May 7; Thurs., May 22; and Thurs., May 29, and the 13th annual morning game at 9:35 a.m. on Mon., June 9.

Promotions for each game will be announced at a later date.

Sign-ups up for season tickets, mini-plans, and group outings for the 2014 season began Friday. Those who sign up now lock in their tickets at 2013 prices.
