Entrance
What time do stadium gates open?

Gates open one hour and five minutes before first pitch (ie 6:00 for a 7:05 game). Season ticket and partial plan holders benefit from early entrance to the ballpark (30 minutes early) through the Claws Cove.

ATM
Is there an ATM in the stadium?

Yes, there is an ATM in the Claws Cove, located on the concourse behind home plate. 

Autograph Policy
Where can I get autographs?
Fans are permitted to seek autographs from players along the railing of the first and third baselines as well as near the dugouts. No autographs will be given while a game is in progress.

Dog Policy
Can I bring my dog to a game?
Fans that bring dogs to the game can sit in Section 115 or on either grass berm with a general admission ticket. Dogs are welcome at Bark in the Park (May 11th, 2019) and at all Sunday home games. Only service dogs are allowed on the Luxury Suite level. 

Lost & Found
Do you have a Lost & Found?
Yes. Lost items that have been turned in may be retrieved at the NJNG Information Booth, located on the concourse behind home plate. Fans also may call the BlueClaws office at 732-901-7000. If an item is found, it should be given to the nearest usher, security officer, or turned over at the NJNG Information Booth.

Smoking
Where can I smoke?
Smoking is not permitted inside FirstEnergy Park. This includes cigerettes, cigars, e-cigerettes, and other artificial devices. Smoking is permitted outside either the first or third base gates. Note that fans must have their hands stamped in order to re-enter the ballpark. 

Handicap Seating
How can I get handicap seating?
Handicap seating is available by request. When purchasing tickets, you can request either wheelchair spots (spots located next to seats where you can watch the game from your wheelchair) or "Semi-Ambulatory" seating (larger seats located at the top of certain sections that do not require going down stairs and provide more leg room). Wheelchair spots are located next to another seat should the person wishing to use the wheelchair wish to sit next to a friend or family member. The seat next to the wheelchair spot must be purchased separately.

Parking
How much is parking?
Parking is $5 per car provided your vehicle only requires one space. 

What times does the lot open?
The lot opens 60 minutes prior to the gates opening (5:00 pm for a 7:05 pm game). 

Is tail-gating allowed?
Yes, provided that your set-up does not take up more than one parking space.
