Impact Wrestling issued the following press release on Friday to announce its partnership with the Hudson Valley Renegades minor league baseball team.
IMPACT Wrestling today announced multiple upcoming promotions in conjunction with the Hudson Valley Renegades, a Minor League Baseball affiliate of the New York Yankees that plays in the South Atlantic League, with their home games held at Dutchess Stadium in Wappingers Falls, New York.
IMPACT Wrestling is on the fast track to Poughkeepsie, N.Y., with the spring pay-per-view extravaganza, Rebellion, set for Saturday night, April 23rd. Championships will be defended, personal feuds will be settled and so much more LIVE from the MJN Convention Center in Poughkeepsie, Tickets are on-sale now at Ticketmaster.com.
Then on Sunday, April 24th, fans will witness the fallout from Rebellion as the #IMPACTonAXSTV flagship weekly TV show also originates from the MJN Convention Center in Poughkeepsie.
The partnership with IMPACT and the Renegades kicks off on Thursday, April 21, when four members of the IMPACT roster – Jordynne Grace, Rosemary, Gail Kim and Scott D’Amore – will be at the game for an in-game promotion.
Then, on Friday, April 22, Moose and Tasha Steelz will be at the Renegades game against Brooklyn and each will throw out the Ceremonial First Pitch.
The roles will be reversed on Sunday, April 24, when the Renegades will attend the IMPACT show and team representatives will throw out the Ceremonial First Pitch at the IMPACT show at the MJN Convention Center.
Powell’s POV: No matter how those first pitches go for Moose and Tasha, they can’t possibly be as awful as Jonny Fairplay throwing out the first pitch (see below).
