About the BlueClaws


Dear BlueClaws fans,

In our first 14seasons we have brought home three titles, attracted over six million fans, and have seen nearly 70 players reach Major League Baseball. 

2014 was certainly very special, for a variety of reasons.

  • We again, thanks to you, the best fans in Minor League Baseball, won the league's attendance title, making us a perfect 14 for 14in that category as we surpassed 5 million fans.
  • We welcomed in our 6-millionth fan in franchise history, 12-year old Connor Cino of Toms River. 
  • Fans saw Phillies top prospect JP Crawford man shortstop for the BlueClaws in the first half before he was promoted at the All-Star break.

On top of that, 10 former BlueClaws made their Major League debuts, bringing the total to 66 over our first 14 years. Included in those 49 are former NL MVP Ryan Howard, 2008 World Series MVP Cole Hamels, and Phillies starting catcher Carlos Ruiz. It's been a pleasure for both us and our fans to see those players thrive here in Lakewood and then at the game's highest level.

We would like to thank the entire Township Committee and Lakewood Development Corporation for their help and support in the success of the BlueClaws. And of course we also thank Phillies President David Montgomery and the entire Phillies organization. Without their support the BlueClaws would not be where we are today.

For those that have discovered the BlueClaws for the first time, welcome.

It is our goal to make your complete experience as enjoyable, entertaining, and family-friendly as possible. We're proud of our three picnic areas, party decks, expanded Kids Zone, BluePen, and so much more.

The BlueClaws have the best fans in Minor League baseball, and we will continue to make FirstEnergy Park a fun and exciting place to visit. We are anxious to offer you the best entertainment and the most enjoyable experience you can possibly imagine. We look forward to seeing you at FirstEnergy Park all summer long!

Let's Go BlueClaws!

Yours in fun,

Lakewood BlueClaws
