“We are looking forward to a fun year as we get set to celebrate and commemorate our 20th season of Cutters baseball,” said Gabe Sinicropi, Cutters VP of Marketing and Public Relations. “Time flies when you’re having fun and we hope we’ve created some great memories for our fans at the ballpark over the past two decades. It’s been heart-warming to watch young fans grow up to have children of their own that they now bring to the ballpark. The 2018 season will be a chance to relive and remember those memories while also creating new ones.”  

Game times remain the same as in previous seasons with all Monday-Saturday home contests starting at 7:05pm and Sunday home games starting at 5:05pm.  The only exceptions are Sunday, August 26 which will be a 7:05pm start with Mahoning Valley and the final game of the season on Monday, September 3 (Labor Day) with a 1:05pm first pitch against State College.
