The Pensacola Blue Wahoos (Class AA; Southern League) are on the verge of the team’s 100th sellout after recording the 98th sellout at Pensacola Bayfront Stadium on Saturday night.
To date, the team has welcomed over 855,000 fans through its gates since its inaugural campaign, hitting the 200,000 fan mark for this season on Thursday, July 10. With 20 games left this year, 223,555 fans have already come through the gates at Pensacola Bayfront Stadium.
“The Blue Wahoos have been a huge part of Downtown Pensacola’s renaissance and our city’s forward momentum,” said Mayor Ashton Hayward. “People are enjoying our team, our park, and the best fan experience in baseball, which is bringing more people downtown and helping to create an atmosphere of excitement about Pensacola.”
Survey results show fans continue to appreciate the game day experience at Pensacola Bayfront Stadium. Through the season’s 10 homestands, 93 percent of fans rank a Blue Wahoos game as “outstanding” – the highest survey ranking possible.
“We are truly grateful to our loyal fans and our dedicated community for completely embracing our team and being such strong supporters,” added Quint Studer, co-owner of the Blue Wahoos. “Our hardworking staff, who always put providing the best customer service and fan experience first, fan-friendly players and coaches and corporate and non-profit partners who serve as our brand ambassadors should all take great pride in this upcoming accomplishment. With the greatest fans, staff and partners in baseball, we continue to build momentum and are excited to see what the future holds for our team, our league and the Wahoos Life.”
