When should I reserve my tickets? Our School Education Days are typically determined in September and we start taking reservations right away. Our School Education Days sell out every season, so you'll want to make reservations as early as possible.

Make a reservation now, give us the final numbers later! Payments will be accepted at any time prior to the deadline, but final numbers of attendees and payment are not required until 30 days prior to the date selected.

We will mail you a downtown map with instructions on where to park your bus. We block off numerous streets and lots in the vicinity of the ballpark for FREE BUS PARKING. There will be dozens of police officers and Mud Hens staffers directing bus drivers to their parking spots.

Of course! Both ballpark souvenir stores will be open during the ballgame. Plus, every student who attends will receive a free Mud Hens School Day Folder upon exiting the ballpark.


GET SOCIAL! Is your class attending a School Education Day with the Mud Hens this season? Snap some photos of your group, tag us on social media, and use the hashtag #MudHensSchoolDays before, during, and after the game. You could be featured on our humongous video display and the Mud Hens Twitter page during the game.

Curriculum Guide

 A brand new comprehensive baseball-based Curriculum Guide, developed by The University of Toledo, is available to all schools at absolutely no cost. It brings a fresh new perspective to basic subjects (like Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Language Arts) and helps showcase key principles as they relate to the baseball game experience.


Career Day

Students are invited to participate in a 'Career Day' program before the School Education Day games. Professionals from the sports business industry will speak about how they achieved their current level of success and will participate in a Q & A with students. Career Day is $1 per person. Call Rita Natter at 419-725-9258 or email Rita at [email protected] for more information on the Career Day program.
