Aiming for a greener world

Read the full story in the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader.

If PNC Field seems a little greener than usual, that’s because the home of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees houses recycling enthusiast Chris Dickerson, who patrols the outfield for the team.

Dickerson, who joined the organization in March in a trade with Milwaukee, has been a green enthusiast nearly his whole life while growing up in Southern California.

He was so into the environment that he and former Major League pitcher Jack Cassel founded the Players for the Planet organization.

The organization, which began in 2008, promotes recycling and helps teach communities about the importance of going green.
