From Energy in Depth Ohio:

Niles, Ohio – Energy Citizens and Energy in Depth are proud to announce they are sponsoring the fireworks after the Mahoning Valley Scrappers game at Eastwood Field tonight.

Besides sponsoring the fireworks show, Energy Citizens and Energy in Depth will also have a presence at the game where baseball fans can learn more about energy production and sign up to become Energy Citizens.

Participating in the mound ceremony before the game will be Roland "Butch" Taylor, the Business Manager of Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 396. Shale gas jobs are providing work for the men and women of the Mahoning Valley, and Energy Citizens and Energy in Depth are proud to have the strong support of Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 396.

 Located in the middle of Ohio’s shale country, Mahoning Valley is an ideal setting for Energy Citizens and Energy in Depth to show their backing of American energy development. The natural gas development from the Utica Shale promises to create thousands of good-paying Ohio jobs. These organizations are proud to support an industry that’s growing Ohio’s economy and strengthening our nation’s energy security.

 It’s fitting that the Scrappers are facing the Wiliamsport Crosscutters on Friday night. Williamsport is located in Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale region, and has seen significant job creation thanks to the Keystone State’s shale gas boom.

 “Shale gas production has transformed local economies around the nation,” said Mike Chadsey, Director of Energy in Depth. “The Utica Shale has a great potential to create not only jobs in the oil and natural gas industries, but also in manufacturing, trucking, and many other industries throughout Ohio. The Mahoning Valley is in a great position to benefit from this surge in American energy production.”

 The Mahoning Valley Scrappers-Williamsport Crosscutters game begins at 7:05 p.m.
