Wappingers Falls, N.Y. (Jan. 22, 2024) – Love is in the air and wedding bells will be ringing on Saturday, July 20 at Heritage Financial Park as Hudson Valley Renegades mascots Rascal and Rosie will tie the knot before the Renegades 5:05 p.m. game against the Rome Emperors. The Rascal and Rosie Wedding Celebration is the highlight of a jam-packed Renegades promotional schedule for 2024.

“We are so thrilled that Rascal and Rosie are taking a walk down the aisle at Heritage Financial Park this season,” said Zach Betkowski, General Manager of the Renegades. “Having witnessed their flirtation and the beginning of their relationship at the ballpark throughout the 2023 season, we are so glad that they have chosen to host their ceremony at the place that has meant so much to their relationship.”

In addition to the wedding, the Renegades’ 66-game home schedule features another jam-packed slate of promotional nights, with a unique theme at every home game. The Renegades have a team-record 22 giveaways and several special appearances planned for the season. Previously announced, the team will give away a special 30th anniversary-themed item during every Saturday home game. Additionally, 2024 sees the return of T-Shirt Tuesday presented by Heritage Financial Credit Union with a unique t-shirt handed out to the first 1,000 fans each Tuesday home game and WeCare Wednesday presented by Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth).

Returning for 2024 are the alternate identities the Cider Donuts and Fenómenos Enmascarados del Valle de Hudson. Debuted in the 2023 season, the Cider Donuts was a finalist for Minor League Baseball alternate identity of the year in 2023 after its wildly successful first season. The Fenómenos Enmascarados was launched in 2021 as part of the Copa de la Diversión program. The Renegades will once again play four games as each identity in 2024.

Previously announced in November, the Renegades have 15 fireworks shows planned for the 2024 season. Fireworks shows will be hosted after every Friday home game, on select Saturdays (June 29 and July 6), along with two MEGA Fireworks Shows on July 4 and July 5 to celebrate Independence Day.

“Our 30th anniversary season is going to be a celebration of Renegades baseball and our mission to make magical memories which become life-long memories for our entire community,” said Betkowski. “We are looking forward to continuing to provide affordable family entertainment to the Hudson Valley with our unique theme nights and experiences.”
