Spikes to wear, auction patriotic caps this weekend

The State College Spikes will join 112 other Minor League Baseball teams in wearing special “Stars & Stripes” caps this Fourth of July weekend to raise funds and awareness for veterans. The Spikes’ caps will be up for bids in a Hat-off-the-Head Auction to benefit the Association for Penn State Veteran Alumni (APSVA) on Sunday, July 6th at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.

Future St. Louis Cardinals stars will wear the caps, created by New Era Cap Company, during the Spikes’ 1 p.m. home game on the Fourth of July against the Jamestown Jammers (Pittsburgh Pirates). The Spikes will then auction off the caps on Sunday, July 6, when they face the Jammers at 6:05 p.m. as part of Military Appreciation Night at the park, presented by Beer Belly’s.
