PARMA, Ohio - Once again, the City of Parma is holding a Parma Night at Progressive Field. This year’s event will take place at Progressive Field in downtown Cleveland on Tuesday, July 28. The Cleveland Indians will be taking on the Kansas City Royals, and the game will begin at 7:05 p.m.

In addition to the baseball game, Parma Night attendees will experience a few other special privileges. There will be a pre-game parade on the Indians’ field, open to all Parma kids and coaches involved in Parma Rec sports teams who are at the game. Additionally, this year’s Parma Night falls on the Indians’ promotional Dollar Dog Night, so attendees will be able to purchase the stadium’s signature Sugardale hot dogs for a dollar each.

Perhaps the most exciting opportunity for those considering attending Parma Night is the Mayor’s First Pitch raffle. Following his own tradition, Parma Mayor Tim DeGeeter is giving up his opportunity to throw out the first pitch and choosing instead to create a raffle for all Parma kids who purchase tickets. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is open to children who are Parma residents, aged 17 or younger, who purchase tickets in advance. The Mayor has given up this privilege for the last three Parma Nights, creating a chance for Parma’s youth that very few people ever get to experience.

“That has been a really fun part of Parma Night for me,” Mayor Tim DeGeeter said. “Sharing the first-pitch experience with Parma families has been really great. I look forward to sharing this with another Parma family this year. I can’t wait to find out who our winner will be.”

The drawing will take place after tickets are sold out or returned to the Indians, which is likely to be about a week before the game.

Tickets are now available for purchase the Parma Recreation department, located at 7335 Ridge Road, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on weekdays. Parma Night tickets are $15.00 for lower box seats and all the fun that goes along with it.
