Bring Your Dog to the Park this Summer!

Six Bark in the Park Days at FirstEnergy Stadium

The Reading Fightin Phils are excited to have our furriest fans out at FirstEnergy Stadium this summer during our Bark in the Park nights thanks to Humane Pennsylvania. There will be six Sunday nights at America’s Classic ballpark where fans can bring their dogs along with them to enjoy the game.

Dog tickets are available for just $5 at these select games in addition to the paying humans. Pups have their own seat so they have just as great of a view as you do! Humane Pennsylvania and Pet Supplies Plus will have information tables set up in the Tompkins Bank Plaza at all Bark in the Park games.

“Humane Pennsylvania has been partnering with the Reading Fightin Phils for quite a few years now,” shared Lauren Henderson, Director of Development for Humane Pennsylvania. “It allows us the opportunity to share our mission and message with the community, and it allows the community to bring their dogs out for a game.”

Bark in The Park Nights:

-Sunday, May 29 – 5:15pm vs Binghamton Rumble Ponies (Mets)

-Sunday, June 12 – 5:15pm vs Altoona Curve (Pirates)

-Sunday, July 17– 5:15pm vs New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Blue Jays)

With a large ballpark, fans can have the opportunity to take their dogs out for some fresh air, get lots of affection from other fans, and enjoy America’s pastime. The R-Phils will have drinking water in multiple areas, as well as a separate space for pets to do their business. Join us at America’s Classic Ballpark with your best friend to make memories that will last a lifetime!

All Sunday home games are also Berks Packing Sunday Family Fun Days, presented by Classic Harley-Davidson, with four tickets, four hot dogs, and four sodas available for only $50 when purchased in advance.
