WAPPINGERS FALLS, NY - The Hudson Valley Renegades, Short Season Class-A Affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays, are pleased to announce a continuation of changes occurring at Dutchess Stadium for the 2019 season.
Before the 2019 season began, Teri Bettencourt, Director of Food and Beverage and Merchandise, started a campaign to rebrand the stadium's food offerings and lowering prices across the board from single game fans, to season ticket holders, to picnics and suites.
The Renegades have lowered prices on fan favorite items throughout the stadium. Some of those items include family friendly combos, hamburgers, hot dogs, french fries, pretzels, Dowser Water and other popular Pepsi products and domestic beers. 17 of the 20 items offered in the main concession stands; 1st and 3rd Base, have been lowered by $.25 to $.75 for an overall average price drop of $.44.
"We have been in touch with fans throughout the off season via surveys and focus groups, and as a result of the valuable information we gathered, we are introducing our new pricing and menu options for the upcoming 2019 season", said Renegades President / General Manager Steve Gliner. "A main focus of our efforts was to continue to offer excellent quality all throughout the stadium while lowering or maintaining prices on just about every item on our menus".
Recognizing the variations in each fan's diet and nutritional wants and needs, a new stand has been added to the concourse; Grains and Greens offers multiple "healthier" alternatives to the common ballpark meals. The Renegades want to remind fans that Vegan and Vegetarian options are available throughout the ballpark to accommodate dietary restrictions.
New in 2019, Doc's Draft & Sloop Brewing Co's Eats & Crafts (formerly The Bistro), located on the first base side of the concourse, has expanded and will offer daily sweet treats as well as its comfort and theme meal specials. In addition, it will also feature Sloop Juice Bomb and Doc's Draft Hard Apple Cider on tap as well as a rotation of seasonal crafts from Sloop Brewing Company.
After making their debuts last season, the Bar at Landshark Landing and Cravings Coffee and Wine Bar return to "The Dutch" in 2019. Cravings Coffee and Wine Bar offers your favorite Barefoot Wines, a new Nescafe Coffee line featuring coffee, cappuccino and more, daily specialty cocktails, and daily Italian specialties like chicken parmesan, flatbreads and pizza. The Bar at Landshark Landing is a full-serve cocktail bar where you can enjoy the game and conversation in a relaxing, laid back atmosphere. Cocktail or beer? Whatever you are in the mood for, Landshark has your potion! Missing another big game? Enjoy catching up on the score on one of our TV's while our terrific bartenders pour your favorites or ours.
