PRESS RELEASE – Today the Williamsport Outlaws unveiled its seating chart for Historic Bowman Field. The 4,200 seat historic stadium will become home to the Williamsport Outlaws this fall as the Outlaws get ready to defend their 2011-2012 Commissioner’s Cup Championship as they face the Dayton Devils Opening Night on October 24th at 7:05 p.m.
The ice facility, named the Airmen Pond at Bowman Field, will sit strategically behind home plate and up the first base line as it provides the best visibility from all angles of the stadium. Rink Specialists, who put the ice facility in FenwayPark in Boston for the NHL Winter Classic, played a key role in the lay out of the rink which provided the best sightlines for fans.
“We feel we found the right place on the infield to lay out the rink which will allow fans to get up close to the action,” said Outlaws Team President/Head Coach Chris Firriolo. “The game is very fast and physical and it was a huge priority of ours to make sure our fans feel they are a part of the game. Rich Cubin and his crew at Rink Specialists did an outstanding job laying out the playing surface with our fans in mind.”
The ice facility will open around October 15th where it will be open to the public for daily public skating sessions, youth hockey, figure skating, adult hockey as well as a home for local college and high school programs.
Information will come out shortly on a schedule for the use of Airmen Pond at Bowman Field for the public.
The Outlaws gear up to defend their 2011-2012 Commissioner’s Cup Championship on October 24th as they face the Dayton Devils on Opening Night. Please visit us at www.williamsportoutlaws.com for ticket information or call 570-560-0906.
