The Portland Sea Dogs (Class AA; Eastern League) welcomed the 7-millionth fan to Hadlock Field last night, as Belinda Morel was greeted at the turnstiles by Sea Dogs’ General Manager Geoff Iacuessa.
Morel received a Sea Dogs prize package consisting of gift certificates to LL Bean, Buffalo Wild Wings, and an hour massage from SOMA Massage and Wellness in South Portland. Additionally, Morel received Season Tickets to the Sea Dogs and throw out a ceremonial first-pitch prior to the game.
The 2011 season is the 18th season of play for the Sea Dogs.

Since that time the Sea Dogs have consistently drawn around 400,000 fans annually and rank among the attendance leaders in Double-A baseball.
