Zebra Pen is excited to partner with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders to create a positive event that will help raise funds and foster a sense of community that includes local and national businesses alike.

“Baseball is a national pastime, as is its connection to writing,” says Ken Newman, Director of Marketing at Zebra Pen Corporation. “Whether you’re filling out a lineup card, keeping score, or signing autographs, the pen is subtly woven into the fabric of the game. This connectivity makes our new partnership a logical expansion for our brand. Beyond the historic connection between baseball and writing, events such as this are about community and teamwork. We are very excited to partner with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders to bring the event and its lasting experiences to their community, as well as be a participant in helping them raise funds for Stand Up To Cancer.”
