LAKEWOOD, NJ - BlueClaws FanFest '14, presented by Sports Authority, the first day that 2014 single-game tickets go on sale, will take place on Saturday, March 8th at FirstEnergy Park from 11 am - 4 pm.

Single-game tickets, for all 70 BlueClaws regular season home games, will go on sale at FanFest. Presently, tickets are only available through 2014 ticket packages, starting at four-games, and group outings.

The BlueClaws have already released a promotional schedule, which can be viewed here. Additional promotions will be announced leading up to FanFest.

"The anticipation of another baseball season always accelerates when we get to FanFest," said BlueClaws General Manager Brandon Marano. "We've spiced up the event a little bit this year and can't wait for FanFest on March 8th and Opening Day on April 10th."

New at FanFest '14, one child will win a "CEO for a Day" VIP Experience. Anyone that reserves a "junior" ticket to a game and shows it at the Kids Club table will be entered to win the experience, which includes a ceremonial first pitch, assisting in on-field promotions, one inning as the PA-announcer, a radio interview, and more.

Kids Club members can participate in a scavenger hunt throughout the ballpark to win a ceremonial first pitch at a 2014 home game. Fans will also win prizes for dressing as the most spirited BlueClaws fans at FanFest (additional information will be released leading up to the event), and there will be a social media hub where fans can win a prize package for posting on Facebook and Twitter about FanFest and getting the most feedback from their friends and followers.

Every fan that comes to the event will receive a coupon valid at Sports Authority. Further, Sports Authority will be set-up at the ballpark with a prize wheel and fans will have the chance to win different sports equipment.

Among the additional benefits for reserving tickets at FanFest:

  • Fans will save $1 on each ticket relative to the normal single-game price of $11 (adult) or $8 (junior/senior).
  • Anyone that donates non-perishable food as part of a collection drive will receive a voucher for two free tickets to an April home game. All food donations will benefit the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Ocean County.
  • When parents reserve Kids Zone passes (valid at any of the 70 regular season home games), they will receive one free.
  • FanFest also includes ballpark tours and free food, plus additional musical entertainment.

In addition, the BlueClaws will be collecting gently used cell phones to benefit Cell Phones for Soldiers. There will be Launch-a-Ball played on the field with proceeds benefiting BlueClaws Charities.

Fans that have already reserved ticket packages can pick them up at FanFest as well.

Phone and internet orders will go on sale at 10 am on Monday, March 10th.

The BlueClaws are the Jersey Shore's top stop for affordable, family entertainment. They have led the South Atlantic League in attendance in all 13 years of existence.

2014 ticket packages and group outings are on sale by calling 732-901-7000 option 3 or online at
