The Rochester Red Wings are changing their name…for one night anyway. The Wings will take the field as the Rochester Plates on Thursday, August 10 at 7:05 pm paying homage to the cuisine most synonymous with our great city - the garbage plate!
To commemorate the one-night name change, the Plates unveiled a new on-field cap and jersey to be worn on August 10.
"There is nothing more Rochester than the Garbage Plate," said Plates General Manager Dan Mason. "There isn't another food item that Rochesterians are more proud of or that is more celebrated in our city than the Garbage Plate and we can't wait to take the field as the Plates!"
