From a Revs media release: The York Revolution and corporate partner AAA have announced plans for a pre-playoff pep rally and convoy before the Revolution travel to Lancaster for Game 1 of the best-of-five Freedom Division Championship series. Revs fans are encouraged to meet up at the AAA Southern Pennsylvania location on Eastern Boulevard in York beginning at 4 p.m.
The Revolution will take on the Lancaster Barnstormers in Game 1 on Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. at Clipper Magazine Stadium in Lancaster.
At the rally, fans may pick up a 2012 Playoffs rally towel presented by AAA. The same rally towel will be handed out to the first 2,000 fans at Game 3 of the series Friday evening at Sovereign Bank Stadium in York. This is a chance for Revolution fans to get their hands on one early to cheer their team on.
Fans at the rally at AAA on Wednesday may also get their picture taken with DownTown, pick up a pair of Revolution cheerstix to try and drown out the cowbells from Lancaster and grab a snack before all the Revolution fans convoy over to Lancaster for the game around 5:30.
The Revolution is attempting to be the first team in Atlantic League history to win three consecutive championships. The most recent was the Somerset Patriots in 2008 and 2009. Last season, York outlasted Lancaster in a thrilling playoff series that went the full five games. Like last season, Lancaster won the Freedom Division first half title, and York took the second half once again to set up the rematch.
