  • Eagle - A $1,000 donation gives 100 tickets for veterans. Each donor receives on-field and website recognition, an exclusive Field Day (date TBD), and a BlueClaws Luxury Suite outing (for 20) either Labor Day Weekend or to an April/May game in 2019 (dates are subject to availability).

Fans can also donate single tickets as well by contacting a BlueClaws representative. 

"The BlueClaws are proud to work with the area business community to support veterans and active military personnel," said Joe Ricciutti, BlueClaws President & General Manager. 

"We also recognize that while their loved ones are serving on active duty, there is often a family stationed at one of our great military bases, worried and waiting for them to safely return. We wanted to also give them an opportunity to enjoy a night with the BlueClaws. We want to be a place where families can go to put the real world on the back burner, even for just a few hours, and enjoy some baseball, mini golf, boardwalk games, ice cream and family time."

All tickets for veterans will be donated through certified programs and directly through Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. 

To participate in Vets Night Out, contact Tyler Odle by calling 732-901-7000 ext 124. 

Thursday, June 14th is Military Appreciation Night, presented by OceanFirst Bank. The BlueClaws will honor veterans throughout the night. Plus, former Yankees infielder Bucky Dent will be on hand for an autograph signing. It's also Thirsty Thursday, presented by 95.9 WRAT, with dollar beer in the brand-new BlueClaws Biergarten, and 50-cent wings from Quaker Steak & Lube. 

Tuesday, August 21st is the lone 2018 appearance from the Phillie Phanatic, presented by OceanFirst Bank. It's also a Silver Sluggers Tuesday where Silver Sluggers members eat free.
