The Portland Sea Dogs (Class AA; Eastern League) are approaching an attendance milestone, as they are set to welcome their 10-millionth fan to Hadlock Field on Monday, August 19.
The 10 millionth fan will receive a Sea Dogs prize package that will include Red Sox tickets with transportation on the Amtrak Downeaster, 2020 Sea Dogs season tickets, and an assortment of other items from various Sea Dogs’ partners. The 10 millionth fan will also receive a special 10 Millionth Fan Sea Dogs jersey and will throw out the ceremonial first-pitch prior to the game.
The 2019 season is the 26th 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. Despite playing in one of the smaller markets in the league, the Sea Dogs have consistently ranked among the league attendance leaders every season. “It’s a testament to the outstanding support we have received from the community”, stated Sea Dogs President & General Manager Geoff Iacuessa.
Attending a Sea Dogs game remains an affordable outing for families, with tickets ranging in price between $6 and $11.
Besides enjoying a fun, affordable family entertainment, fans have been fortunate to see many of today’s Boston Red Sox stars develop including Andrew Benintendi, Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., Xander Bogaerts, Michael Chavis, Rafael Devers, and others.
