The Frederick Keys are taping into some cross-sport appeal with a celebrity appearance by a former Caps player and post-game Fireworks.
The game was #ALLCAPS night, borrowing from the NHL team’s hashtag, and it included:
- Knuble will do a meet-and-greet and autograph session with fans from 6-8 p.m and throw out a first pitch.
- Keys players and coaches will wear special hockey-themed jerseys with proceeds benefiting Play4TheCure.
- Fireworks follow the game, sponsored by Premiere Dental Arts.
However the weather did not cooperate: Frederick Keys, the single A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, announced that their night devoted to the Washington Capitals was postponed due to the weather. Former Capitals forward Mike Knuble will not be in attendance. But the team was quick to reprogram the night.
- Caps Night (w/jerseys) will be on Sunday afternoon, players will wear the jerseys for Game 2 of the doubleheader. People can bid on them on the concourse. Proceeds benefit Play4TheCure.
- Knuble said his appearance had been rescheduled for next season.
- Fireworks show presented by MDOT and Planet Fitness will be a super show.
