“We’re very pleased to get on board with the Herkimer County Hunger Coalition. Our goal is to not only donate money to assist those in need, but to also to help raise awareness regarding hunger in our community” said Travis Heiser, President/GM of the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs.  “The people of the Mohawk Valley have the most generous, and with their support of our pitching staff, we hope to raise hundreds of dollars to help eliminate hunger among our neighbors.”

The DiamondDawgs home opener is Friday, June 8, 2012.  A HUGE post-game fireworks spectacular sponsored by the Herkimer Diamond Mines will help kick off the season.
