‘Walking with Dinosaurs’ Comes to FirstEnergy Stadium


PRESS RELEASE – It may have taken 65 million years, but dinosaurs are back, and the Reading Phillies are pleased to announce that on Tuesday, May 25, a baby T-Rex will roam FirstEnergy Stadium, much like it roamed Earth 200 million years ago.

Tuesday’s game will be one for the ages – literally,” said R-Phils GM Scott Hunsicker. “I believe our fans will be amazed at how real and stunning the dinosaur looks and sounds. It is truly a sight to be seen and people of all ages will be able to enjoy it.”

Tickets for Tuesday’s exciting contest are still available, and can be purchased in person at FirstEnergy Stadium, by calling (610) 375-8469 or by visiting readingphillies.com.

While the R-Phils will host the Portland Sea Dogs in game two of their four-game set from FirstEnergy Stadium on Tuesday, May 25, all fans who enter the gates for the 6:35 p.m. contest will be treated to an experience like never before. 

Walking With Dinosaurs, the award-winning BBC TV series, has come to life in a stunning theatrical event, and Reading Phillies fans will be able to see a baby T-Rex up close, as it will make a one-night appearance at FirstEnergy Stadium during the team’s upcoming seven-game homestand. 

The baby T-Rex will appear during a pre-game ceremony on-field, it will throw out a ceremonial first pitch, and it will make its way around FirstEnergy Stadium during the game. Fans will be able to get a glimpse of the baby T-Rex as it navigates its way through America’s Classic Ballpark. Plus, don’t forget to bring your camera, as you’ll want to make sure to photograph this incredible site for all your friends to see.
