Fifth Third Field goes to the dogs Wednesday, 8/23

By Toledo Mud Hens | August 8, 2017 10:54 AM ET

Bark by popular demand! The Toledo Mud Hens will host a second dog friendly night at Fifth Third Field during Hens and Hounds Night on Wednesday, August 23. That night we'll have a special area set up at the ballpark for fans to catch the action with their furry companions.

Tickets for dog owners are $12 each, and tickets for your furry companion are $8 each. 100 percent of the dog ticket proceeds will benefit Toledo Area Humane Society. 

Fans with their dog are asked to enter Fifth Third Field through the Center Field Gate near the corner of Monroe and St. Clair. There will also be access to Hensville Park, located just outside of the Home Run Picnic Terrace (see on map).

  • The first 300 dogs will receive a doggie prize.
  • All dogs and owners will sit in the Home Run Picnic Terrace (Sections 120 - 122).
  • Dog must be on a six foot (or less) leash. No retractable leashes are allowed.
  • Special water stations, mini-pools, and designated restroom areas will be provided.
  • We expect large crowds of both dog fans and Hens fans, so please bring only well-behaved and well-mannered dogs. 



Even man's best friend wants to dress like the home team. Shop our selection of dog gear including a Mud Hens dog jersey, leashes and collars! Stop by the Swamp Shop or shop online.

NINE at Hensville: | Chef Tony has put together a menu that he describes as "traditional Americana" where he uses local ingredients from area farms and producers to create made-from-scratch dishes with a modern taste and composition. NINE is housed in the former Folger Butcher Shop, a historic 1865 building. Exposed brick, reclaimed wood and handcrafted tables give NINE a casual vibe that fits a fun, downtown, neighborhood restaurant.

Fleetwood's Tap Room: | Have a drink at Hensville's new craft beer bar, located on the first floor of the Fleetwood Building across the street from Fifth Third Field. Fleetwood's Tap Room features 48 beers on draft, a wide selection of whiskeys, an eclectic menu, and an outstanding outdoor patio that overlooks Hensville Park.

BirdCage Bar & Grill: | The BirdCage Bar and Grill is located on the Club Level at Fifth Third Field and provides incredible views of the on-field action! Your ticket to the Mud Hens game gives you entry to the BirdCage, where you and your guests will enjoy a great dining experience created by Chef Tony House, featuring a display of hand-carved meats, antipasti, classic salad, and seasonal entrees.
