The Lakewood BlueClaws, a Single A affiliate of Philadelphia play in FirstEnergy Park. The park was built in 2001, with seating for 6,588. This is a great park for minor league baseball. You can see the field from the concession concourse. There is a walkway around the outfield and a place in right center where you can stand to watch the game. You can get tickets to sit on the grassy area in the outfield and become a member of the Sod Squad. There are picnic areas down both baselines and in left center. All seating is in seats with cupholders for each seat. The BlueClaws were playing the Hagerstown Suns and were defeated 7-2. The game was tied at 2-2 until the 7th inning when the Suns scored 5 runs and put the game out of reach for the BlueClaws. The box score was Suns R-7, H-9, E-1 and BlueClaws R-2, H-8, E-2. The field lines are RF & LF-309' and CF-405'. There is an outstanding souvenir shop called the Claws Cove. They have every major league cap and right under the major league cap are all the minor league caps in descending order. The Brick National Braves Little League team from Brick Township went on the field with the BlueClaws. This 8 year old team is sponsored by Carrabba's Restaurant. Every night a little league team goes on the field. As a special attraction the Blues Brothers were at the game. They really worked with the crowd during the game as well as performing their standard songs. As one between inning activity they have an eye-ball race. Three people are dressed up as very large eye-balls and run from right field to home plate. We would like to thank Assistant General Manager John Clark for the complimentary tickets, having our name displayed on the scoreboard, and spending time with us during the game.
