Travelers and Birmingham Barons to Feature the 1992 Alabama Championship Team

First Pitch
1992 Alabama Football National Champions Prince Wimbley, Derrick Owens Lassic, Anthonio Langham, David Palmer and ESPY Award-Winner, Tyrone Prothro, will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch to generate awareness and money for Coach Nick Saban’s charity, Nick’s Kids Fund at Travelers Night at the Ballpark at the Birmingham Barons game on Aug. 18 versus the Tennessee Smokies.

Nick’s Kids Fund Donation
Each legendary player will have the chance to throw out a pre-game pitch. For each strike they throw, Travelers will donate $500 to Nick’s Kids Fund, for a total of $2,500. (Travelers previously raised $5,000 for Nick’s Kids Fund in 2011, and will continue this effort and partnership at the Alabama vs. Ole Miss football game on Saturday, Sept. 29.) 

Throughout the Barons game, the Alabama alumni will be on site at the Travelers Photo Experience, where fans will have the opportunity to have their photo taken with the players for their personalized cover of the Birmingham Barons game program.

Additional fan activities at Travelers Night at the Ballpark include the Travelers Putting Challenge, where fans who make two-out-of-three putts will receive a prize. All fans that stop by the Putting Challenge can complete a form to receive a complimentary Travelers/Birmingham Barons branded T-shirt, available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Travelers will also be an official co-sponsor of the post-game fireworks.

Leading up to Travelers Night at the Ballpark, fans are invited to stop by the Customer Service Booth within Regions Park at all Barons home games to enter for a chance to win the ultimate VIP Fan Experience. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, Aug. 7 and the VIP Fan Experience will be redeemed at Travelers Night at the Ballpark on Saturday, Aug. 18.
