Bring a Family of Four to the Game, Get Dinner and Souvenirs for Under $55

Wilmington, DE - The first priority of the Wilmington Blue Rocks is to provide the region with affordable family entertainment. In 2009 the Rocks are proud to announce that a family of four can park at the stadium, get four tickets to a game, eat dinner at the park, and buy souvenirs for the kids, all for the incredibly low price of only $54.50.

In an attempt to keep track of just how feasible attending a game at Frawley Stadium is, the Blue Crew's front office created the Blue Rocks Fan Cost Index in 1998. The Fan Cost Index allows the Rocks to monitor how much it would cost a family of four to purchase two adult general admission tickets, two child general admission tickets, park their car, get four hotdogs, four sodas, two large popcorns, one program, and two souvenir pennants.

Below is a chart listing out the prices of each item:

2009 Blue Rocks Fan Cost Index

· 2 adult general admission tickets: $12
· 2 child general admission tickets: $10
· 4 hot dogs $8
· 2 sodas $7
· 2 large popcorns $7.50
· 1 program $2
· 2 pennants $8
· parking $0

Total Cost: $54.50

In the difficult economic environment currently embroiling everyone, the Blue Rocks are looking to do their part to make things just a little easier. That is why in addition to the everyday low prices above, the Rocks will offer nine dates with reduced rates on all tickets and select souvenirs and concessions. It is called the: 9 in '09 Blue Rocks Bailout Special.

The Blue Rocks open their 2009 season on April 9 on the road against the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (Atlanta Braves). But Frawley Stadium will see its first game action of the year on April 17 when the Blue Crew kicks off a six-game homestand with a 7:05 p.m. first pitch against the Lynchburg Hillcats (Pittsburgh Pirates).

Remember, the place for affordable family fun in '09 is Frawley Stadium. To be a part of all the action, purchase tickets by phone, at 302-888-BLUE, or online at the official team website,
