Muckdogs seek to set new attendance record at Aug. 22 game

On Friday, Aug. 22, the Batavia Muckdogs need your help in breaking Dwyer Stadium’s 75-year-old attendance record.
When baseball came to Batavia in 1939, 3,000 fans attended the first game at what was known at the time as State Street Park. If the record is broken next Friday, when the Muckdogs face Mahoning Valley at 7:05, one lucky fan could win $3,001!
Gates open at 6 p.m.
Fans must register for the drawing that night at the ballpark but no purchase is necessary. All Muckdogs’ season ticket holders are automatically eligible to win. Friday, Aug. 22nd, will also be the last post-game fireworks show of the 2014 season.
Tickets for Friday’s game can be purchased at the Dwyer Stadium Box Office or over the phone by calling (585) 343-5454. Normal box office hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday -- Friday. Only eight home games remain for the 2014 season, including the Muckdogs next home game tonight, Aug. 16, at 7:05 vs Jamestown.
