Penn State Football: James Franklin Set To Toss Out First Pitch Of Phillies-Braves Game

by on June 18, 2015 1:00 PM

James Franklin will throw out the first pitch at the July 30th Phillies-Braves game as part of he Philies "THON Night" to help raise money for Penn State's student-run dance marathon.

Franklin will be making his second appearance at the mound after tossing a speedy strike at Yankee Stadium earlier this year.

Given the Phillies struggles this season it's entirely possible Franklin could be one of the best to take the mound in a Philadelphia uniform this year.

Seating will be located in the following areas:

  • Outfield (section 104) at $38 per ticket
  • Pavilion (section 202) at $30 per ticket
  • Pavilion Deck (section 302) at $20 per ticket

Net proceeds from ticket sales through this particular offer will go to THON. You can see details here.

Since 1977, THON has raised over $114 million to benefit the Four Diamonds at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital. The program's year-long fundraising effort culminates with a 46-hour, no-sitting, dance marathon at the Bryce Jordan Center.

The 2015 event raised over $13 million for pediatric cancer support and research.
