Rival coaches, but a team on the mound when both head coaches of SUNY Cortland and Ithaca College football teams throw the ceremonial opening pitch for an MLB Yankees Game on Thursday, July 28.
Coaches Curt Fitzpatrick of Cortland and Mike Toerper of Ithaca will throw from the mound as part of a Cortaca Jug Day at the stadium.
The first pitch will occur before the Yankees take on the Kansas City Royals at 7:05pm.
“I hope that many members of the SUNY Cortland community can gather together at Cortaca Jug Day and show off their Cortland pride,” SUNY Cortland President Erik J. Bitterbaum said. “This is a wonderful opportunity for our students and alumni to enjoy themselves at one of the most iconic venues in sports.”
Cortaca 2022 will be taking place at Yankee Stadium on Saturday, November 12th.
