On Saturday, May 14th, the Harrisburg Senators will celebrate 35 years of baseball with many great giveaways.
The Harrisburg Senators are a Minor League Baseball team of the Eastern League and the Double-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals. They are located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and play their home games at FNB Field, located on City Island in Harrisburg, which opened in 1987 and has a seating capacity of 6,187 people.
The “Senators” nickname refers to the host city being the state’s capital and thus the home of the Pennsylvania legislature. The team colors are red, navy blue, gold, and white, the same colors as the Washington Nationals’ parent club.
Harrisburg has won nine Eastern League titles and is the first team in league history to win four titles: 1987, 1993, 1996, 1997, 1998, and 1999. The 1993 Senators were recognized as one of the 100 greatest minor league teams.
Congrats to the Senators!
