Batter Up! The Hudson Valley Renegades Bring the Heat with 2023 Promo Schedule, Featuring Snooki Night and More

Calling all mawmas. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, the star of MTV’s Jersey Shore,is coming home for Snooki Night at Heritage Financial Park on Sept. 8. The Renegades are celebrating Snooki with a bobblehead, specialty jersey, and an exclusive VIP meet-and-greet with the Marlboro native.

Snooki Night is presented by The Snooki Shop, Nicole’s chain of stores with three locations, including in Beacon, New York. Prior to her massive success in television and business, Nicole was a member of the Renegades family as a gameday employee.

In addition to Snooki Night, 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 21 giveaways and 10 special appearances planned for the season.

Additionally, the Renegades are rolling out a re-vamped weekly promotional schedule, featuring new promotions like T-Shirt Tuesdays presented by Heritage Financial Credit Union, where the first 1,000 fans through the gates receive a unique Renegades t-shirt for each of the nine Tuesday games throughout the season.

Also new for the 2023 season is Dollar Dog Thursdays presented by Sahlen’s, where fans can enjoy $1 Sahlen’s Hot Dogs during every Thursday home game. The Renegades have also teamed up with Hannaford Supermarkets to present three Kids Eat Free games throughout the season. The first 250 kids 12 & under through the gates will receive a voucher for a hot dog, chips, and soft drink.

“There has been a lot of progress made since the end of the 2022 season, and we are excited to showcase that to all our fans through our promotional schedule,” said Jeffers. “I’m personally excited that we are having the most giveaway nights in the history of the Renegades, and I can’t wait for our fans to share in the excitement and packing the park.”

Previously announced in November, the Renegades have 21 fireworks shows planned for the 2023 season. Fireworks shows will be hosted after every Friday home game, every Saturday home game from June through September, along with a special Super Fireworks Show on July 3 to celebrate Independence Day.

The Renegades will be taking on two alternate identities during the 2023 season. After debuting in 2021, the Renegades will once again take on the Fenómenos Enmascarados del Valle de Hudson identity for four games during the 2023 season as part of the Copa de la Diversión program. New for this season, the Renegades will suit up as the Cider Donuts for four games, debuting the brand on the field on June 3.
