Final Payment  back to top
You must be paid in full one month prior to your game date. This allows enough time for you to receive your tickets and distribute them to your group. 

 

Children  back to top
Children four and under are free unless they require a seat. Ticket prices are the same for all fans 5 and over. 

 

Increase/decrease your group size  back to top
If you would like to increase/decrease your group size please call us immediately. If there is still availability we will accommodate you with additional tickets. Reducing your group size must be done at least 2 weeks before your game date. 

 

Unused Fundraiser Tickets  back to top
If you have any unused fundraiser tickets after the night of your event, they can be exchanged for free general admission tickets to any remaining BlueClaws game that season. All exchanges must be done in person at the BlueClaws Box Office or arranged through your group representative.

 

Inclement Weather  back to top
There are two possible scenarios:
1. The gates will open and your buffet will be served while we determine the status of the game. This is, by far, the most likely scenario. The BlueClaws always do our best to play the games. If your buffet is served but the game is not completed (4 1/2 innings) we will work with you to reschedule your group in reserve seats. This can be done as a group or individually. In this situation group leaders should instruct everyone to hold on to their tickets. 
2. The game is a complete washout and the gates are never opened. In the unlikely event that this occurs, the buffet will not be served and we will make every attempt to contact you as early as possible to keep you informed and reschedule your outing.

**In the event of inclement weather, feel free to contact your group sales contact at
732-901-7000 or log onto the official BlueClaws Twitter Page for updates on the status of the game.

 

Posters  back to top
If you would like a poster(s) to help advertise and promote your group outing, please let us know. We will send you a poster(s) that can be hung in break rooms or on bulletin boards so everyone can see it.

 

Group Raffle Cards  back to top
The BlueClaws will bring short group raffle cards to each group during you game, and we will choose one winner. That person will receive a ceremonial first pitch, an autographed player baseball and four tickets to a BlueClaws game later that season. Further, the winner and that winner's group leader are entered into a drawing for full-season tickets to the following season. 

 

Tables  back to top
Some groups require a table where they can distribute nametags, tickets, etc. to their guests. If you have such needs please contact your group sales representative prior to the day of your game. 

 

Beer  back to top
Beer is not included in the price of your group outing, but is available on a cash basis. We offer the option of a bartender (if you are in a buffet area) or beer vouchers (for $4.50 on a $5.25 beer).

 

Vouchers  back to top
BlueClaws Groups have the opportunity to order value-priced food and merchandise in advance through Group Vouchers. Savings go up to 29% on food and 50% on merchandise. Click here for a list of all vouchers available to BlueClaws Group Outings.

 

Gift Cards  back to top
Looking to add something special for your group? The BlueClaws offer gift cards that can be ordered and used for food or merchandise. If the full amount of the gift card is not used in one night, the card is valid all year for additional BlueClaws tickets, food, or merchandise.  

 

Bus Drivers back to top
For groups traveling by bus please let us know ahead of time. The bus driver will receive a ticket to the game.
