Latest Update- April 29, 2020
We want to update our fans on where we stand with the 2020 Portland Sea Dogs season. While our season is still officially delayed, we do want to respect Governor Janet Mills' re-opening plans which restrict crowds of more than 50 through at least July. Given those guidelines, we want to be fair and transparent to our fans on how we are planning to move forward at this time.
As an organization, our focus is now shifting to taking care of our fans who have purchased tickets for the 2020 season. Fans with tickets for this season may hold on to the hard tickets and exchange them for any game in the 2021 season. In addition, fans who would like a refund may mail their tickets to the Sea Dogs Ticket Office no later than Friday, August 28, 2020. Once we are permitted to return to our offices by the city of Portland, we will begin processing all requests. For further ticket info, please visit our FAQ section below.
Despite the increasing likelihood, we will not be able to host fans this season, we remain committed to paying all our full-time and game-day staff for the season. Like many others in our community, our organization is facing a difficult year, but we are committed to making sure our fans and employees are cared for. And when baseball returns to Hadlock Field we promise to be ready to deliver the family entertainment you have counted on us for since 1994.
In closing, we want to thank all the frontline workers who are performing their essential job functions during this difficult period.
In accordance with CDC recommendations and local and state mandates the Sea Dogs front office, ticket office & team store are temporarily closed. Fans may still purchase merchandise and gift cards on-line. To purchase tickets please call us at 207-879-9500 or email [email protected].

How long can we expect the 2020 MiLB season to be postponed?
The Minor League Baseball season has been delayed indefinitely. At this time there is no timetable for the return of baseball. We will continue to keep our fans updated as we gather information from local, state, and federal officials as well as Minor and Major League Baseball.
From Minor League Baseball: The MiLB office is working in coordination with Major League Baseball (MLB) to provide clubs the most up-to-date information related to the 2020 season, when players will report, and when it's safe to host games and fans again. As of Sunday, March 15, 2020, the federal government has issued recommendations to eliminate gatherings of 50+ people for the next eight weeks. While we await further information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and our local and federal agencies, we believe it's prudent for clubs to develop operational plans that account for ballparks being closed to large gatherings for several weeks.
How can I help support the Sea Dogs?
You can help support the team by purchasing gift cards. Gift cards can be used for tickets, souvenirs, and concessions. Thank you for your support.
