Williamsport, Pa. -- The Williamsport Crosscutters are honoring essential workers during the upcoming 2021 season.

The program, called Frontline Heroes, is presented by UPMC and will honor an essential worker in pregame ceremonies at every Cutters home game this season. 

Cutters Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations Gabe Sinicropi said, “As we all know, frontline and essential workers were all heroes, and continue to be, during the pandemic. If this was a normal year, we’d have a full night in their honor. But faced with very limited stadium capacity that was unfortunately impossible. In lieu of that, we will shine the spotlight on one of these extraordinary heroes each night to represent the countless essential workers who have continually gone above and beyond every day in our community.”
