Portland, Maine - The Portland Sea Dogs will host three "Bark in the Park" games, presented by IDEXX in 2019, allowing fans to take their dog out to the ballgame and enjoy a baseball game with the entire family.
The dog-friendly games will be held on April 5th at 6:00 PM, June 21st at 7:00 PM, and on August 24th at 6:00 PM.
"The popularity of our Bark in the Park days continues to grow each year," stated Sea Dogs President & General Manager Geoff Iacuessa. "We are proud to partner with Idexx to host three Bark in the Park games in 2019, the most we have ever had in a single season."
At each "Bark in the Park" game, there will be a special section located in the leftfield grandstand for dogs and their owners. There will be a doggie parade pregame in which fans may parade around the warning track with their dogs, led by Slugger the Sea Dog. Doggie Valets will be on hand to care for pets while people visit the Hadlock Field concourse. The event is B.Y.O.B. (bring your own bag). Gates open 90 minutes before game time. Dogs and their owners will have a private entrance into the ballpark on the third base side of the stadium.
Dogs and their owners each require tickets to attend. Tickets cost $9.00 for adults, $6.00 for kids and seniors, and $6.00 for each dog coming to the game. Only 300 tickets are available.
