Bridgewater, NJ- The Somerset Patriots are expecting their 7,000,000th fan to come out to TD Bank Ballpark during the weekend of Friday, July 27th through Sunday, July 29th.
The 7,000,000th Fan will receive a special VIP Package that includes Somerset Patriots memorabilia, 2019 Season Tickets, special gifts from team sponsors, and much more!
“We are very excited to reach this milestone,” said Somerset Patriots President/General Manager Patrick McVerry. “We have the best fans in baseball who have shown up year-after-year to root on their favorite team. The Somerset Patriots have become part of their lives and we couldn’t be more appreciative of their on-going support and love of our team.”
The award-winning TD Bank Ballpark officially opened up for business on June 7, 1999 and has become the premier community-gathering place in Central New Jersey. Now in their 20th season at TD Bank Ballpark, the Somerset Patriots have historically drawn over 5,200 fans per game and over 365,000 fans per season.
The team was one of the fastest franchises to reach each of the 1,000,000-fan marks already achieved. Most recently, the 6,000,000th fan was surpassed in mid-August of 2015.
The 2018 Somerset Patriots Season presented by Ford is underway and features the team’s 20th Season at TD Bank Ballpark. The team has clinched a playoff spot already by winning the 2018 Liberty Division First Half Championship. For tickets, visit www.somersetpatriots.com.
