About the NH Fisher Cats

The New Hampshire Fisher Cats are proud to serve the entire state of New Hampshire. Since our inception in October of 2003, the Fisher Cats have established themselves as a high profile business in the New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts market. Through extensive community outreach programs, affordable pricing and a first class entertainment experience at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, the Fisher Cats have become New Hampshire's premier outdoor entertainment destination.


In the first season, the Fisher Cats played at historic Gill Stadium, located on the East Side of Manchester. Its inaugural season proved a huge success, as the Fisher Cats won the 2004 Eastern League Championship! Starting in 2005, the team moved to its own Merchantsauto.com Stadium along the banks of the Merrimack River in the heart of downtown Manchester. The ballpark seats 6,500 people.

In 2007, the Fisher Cats set numerous attendance records. On June 16th, a franchise single-game record 8,227 fans saw the Fisher Cats beat the Erie SeaWolves. Just nine days later, the team established a franchise-record seventh consecutive standing-room-only crowd of 6,831when the Fisher Cats hosted the Portland Sea Dogs. A grand total of 371,710 fans came to Northeast Delta Dental Stadium to cheer on their hometown heroes. To add to the record-setting season, the franchise welcomed its 1,000,000th fan on July 7th - Drew Farris of Andover, MA.

In 2008, the Fisher Cats celebrated their 5-year anniversary, as well as the 2008 Northeast Delta Dental Eastern League All-Star Game. The game featured the top players in the Eastern League, including the Fisher Cats own Travis Snider, who won the Irving Oil Home Run Derby. The game drew a record-setting crowd of 8,762. The 2008 season also marked the additions of the Ted Williams Hitters Hall of Fame as well as the Samuel Adams Bar & Grill to Northeast Delta Dental Stadium. The Fisher Cats drew a total of 373,227 fans during the historic 2008 season. The team also was voted as the Best Sporting Venue to Take a Client by the New Hampshire Business Review's Best of Business Awards and was recognized as the Most Vegetarian Friendly ballpark in all of Minor League Baseball by PETA!

The team just enjoyed another tremendous season at the gates in 2009, where the franchise set its single-season attendance record for the sixth straight year, totaling 386,991 fans that came out and enjoyed events at the ballpark. The club also saw an all-time high of 8,903 fans turn out at Merchantsauto.com Stadium on May 26th, in a game that featured future Hall of Fame pitcher John Smoltz on the mound. The team also set attendance records for three, seven, and eight-game homestands and averaged over 5,600 fans per game.

The Fisher Cats were a repeat winner in the New Hampshire Business Review's 2009 BOB Awards as the Best Sporting Venue to Take a Client; and Merchantsauto.com Stadium was ranked as the Most Vegetarian Friendly Ballpark in all of Minor League Baseball by PETA for the second straight year.

In 2010, the Fisher Cats made it a threepeat as the Best Sporting Venue to Take a Client in the BOB Awards, and on May 15, the club welcomed its 2,000,000th fan when 10-year-old Brendan Howard of Fremont, NH, entered the ballpark for a Fisher Cats/Portland Sea Dogs game. Merchantsauto.com Stadium played host to over 410,000 fans for all events including 391,472 that tripped the turnstiles for the Fisher Cats regular season and playoff games. The 2010 season capped a record setting year both on and off the diamond as three players established multiple single-season franchise records; the stadium welcomed 14 standing-room-only crowds; a live '1964...The Tribute' concert and the month of August witnessed the highest monthly attendance in the team's history with 110,825 fans enjoying Fisher Cats games.

On January 31, 2011 the Fisher Cats announced a partnership with Northeast Delta Dental including the stadium naming rights to become Northeast Delta Dental Stadium.

The Fisher Cats are proud to call Manchester, New Hampshire their home and look forward to seeing you out at the park this season!
