Summer just isn’t summer without baseball.
At the Shore, that means a trip to FirstEnergy Park for a Lakewood BlueClaws game. It’s a great way to enjoy America’s pastime without breaking your budget. Minor league baseball is about intimate communal experiences, and the devotees of this Single-A affiliate of the world-champion Philadelphia Phillies help make every trip to FirstEnergy a memorable one.
The stadium has it all: party decks, food courts, luxury suites, playgrounds, picnic areas, and lots of friendly faces. The team is nothing to scoff at either. Phillies all-stars Ryan Howard and Cole Hamels passed through the farm system, and the BlueClaws finished 2008 with the best record in the South Atlantic League.
The stellar play on the field translates to eye-popping attendance numbers each year. Promotional events include fireworks extravaganzas (at every Friday-night home game, including July 3), celebrity appearances, Senior Day Tuesday promotions, flea markets, and much more. If you plan to attend multiple games, the club offers an enticing array of ticket plans. Visit lakewoodblueclaws.com for ticket information and promotional dates.
