The Portland Sea Dogs (Class AA; Eastern League) are poised to hit a big milestone in team history, with the 8-millionth fan in franchise history expected to be at Hadlock Field Tuesday.
The Sea Dogs have hosted 7,996,841 fans at Hadlock Field and are just 3,159 fans away from 8 million.
The 8 millionth fan will receive a Sea Dogs prize package including a pair of Sea Dogs season tickets for the next eight years, eight rounds of golf at Nonesuch River, eight $25.00 gift cards to Salvage BBQ, eight $25.00 gift cards to Hannaford, a #8 Sea Dogs jersey, and will get to throw out the ceremonial first-pitch prior to the game.
The 2014 season is the 21st season of play for the Sea Dogs. In the team’s first season in 1994, the Sea Dogs established a new Eastern League record in attendance as 375,197 fans made their way to Hadlock Field. Since that time the Sea Dogs have consistently drawn around 400,000 fans annually and rank among the attendance leaders in Double-A baseball.
