Fans can watch the BlueClaws game or select MLB games including the Phillies from there as well.
"This has been a welcome addition to the ShoreTown Ballpark food and beverage experience," said Ricciutti. "Fans love the coastal decor, the atmosphere, and of course the food!"
The Blue Wave Bar, located on Suite Level, is open to all fans and stays open one hour after each game.
