What's new at FirstEnergy Park this year? As part of teh first phase of a multi-year capital investment program, the BlueClaws have made several major enhancements to the ballpark.
"We're excited to usher in this new era of BlueClaws Baseball," said Art Matin, managing partner of Shore Town Baseball, the team's new ownership group. "These improvements to the ballpark are just the start of what Shore Town Baseball has in store for BlueClaws fans moving forward."
Mini Golf Course
The BlueClaws opened a nine-hole family Mini Golf Course that is located down the right field line adjacent to the new Shore Town Soft Serve Ice Cream stand. The course is open during all BlueClaws home games and is available for special events as well. The course was designed by leading firm Harris Mini Golf.
Additionally, each hole is dedicated to one former BlueClaws player as part of the course's Holes of Fame.

The new BlueClaws Biergarten, located down the left field line, is the new home to Thirsty Thursdays, presented by 95.9 WRAT, and the Summer Concert Series, presented by Founders Brewing Company.
This area offers significantly expanded seating options, with both high-top and sit-down, picnic-style tables available. Further, the Biergarten, which will include the WRAT Trap, will have additional sales portables for speedier service. A variety of craft beers, including some local New Jersey brews from Shore Point Distributing, will be available at the Biergarten as well.
