There really are countless reasons why we love the Delmarva Shorebirds, but we were encouraged to limit it to the top 5 among the ShoreBread crew. If you’ve never been to a game or if you can’t remember the last game you attended, now is the time to go! There’s nothing better than sitting in the stands with your family and friends and witnessing a true American past-time that is available in your own back yard. Go tonight or go next week, but go soon because the 2016 season ends on Monday, September 5th.
- Kids are allowed to run the bases! Did you know that? Yes, after each Sunday home game, the kids in the stands are invited to run the bases on the field. All ages are welcome. The only requirement to run the bases is an enthusiastic spirit for the Delmarva Shorebirds!
- The Strike Out Hunger Campaign Challenge sponsored by Perdue, which has provided more than 500,000 meals to at-risk residents on Delmarva since 2011. Perdue will donate $10.00 for each time a Shorebirds pitcher strikes out an opposing batter, up to $5,000.00! Bonus on Sunday, bring two non-perishable food items to the stadium and receive a general admission ticket for only $3.00!
- Sherman! You can always count on the Shorebirds mascot to get the crowd going and this bird doesn’t take a day off. Sherman is always on the road making public appearances and representing the Shorebirds in a very positive way. Keep your eyes peeled – you never know when Sherman may appear in the library, small town parades or the county fair.
- Two Buck Monday is hands down the best deal in town. Two buck general admission, two buck fountain sodas and two buck hotdogs. Seriously, you can’t beat this deal! Got a family of 4 looking for some outdoor fun on a Monday night? Look no further than the Perdue Stadium on Rt. 50 East. Oh, and that will only be $24.00, please.
- The staff at the Perdue Stadium is wonderful! From the box office to the people monitoring the sections within the stadium to the food vendors. Everyone is so pleasant and polite! We don’t know exactly what their titles are, but the stadium employees who are charged with keeping the crowd engaged are awesome. They may have some fun contests and cool prizes to give away, but you can really see their passion for the game when they lead the entire stadium in a very traditional chicken dance. The “optimists”… I think we shall call them the “optimists”! Well done, Delmarva Shorebirds.
