Father’s Day With The Ducks

Fathers are always toughest to a present, especially for Father’s Day. After all, what do you get the guy who has everything?

How about a Day at the Ducks?

The Ducks will be featuring a baseball card giveaway, as well as an opportunity to enjoy an all you can eat barbecue before the game on Sunday, June 21, 2015 against the Bridgeport Bluefish.

“This is a great way for fathers to enjoy quality family time on a special day at the ballpark,” says Ducks President/GM Michael Pfaff. “We are excited to provide fans with this unique opportunity and look forward to spending Father’s Day with our ‘Faithful Flock.’”

A lot will be going on that day.

First there’s the pregame barbecue. Fans will be able to enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet that includes hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, ribs, roasted corn, tossed salad, Pepsi beverages, cookies, potato chips, snacks, watermelon, potato, and macaroni salad. The picnic will begin two hours before first pitch at 11:30 a.m. and will last through the start of the game. Fans can purchase a package now that includes access to the Father’s Day Barbecue and a ticket to the game for just $30 ($20 upgrade for season ticket and 10-game mini plan holders).

A second package is also available that includes the Father’s Day Barbecue, a ticket to the game, and the opportunity for one (1) father and one (1) guest to take the field at Bethpage Ballpark for a pre-game catch. This unique experience will last for 15 minutes from 12:00 to 12:15 p.m., and the pair will receive a Ducks logo baseball to use for their catch and keep as a souvenir. Participants should bring their own gloves to the game for the catch. Fans can purchase this package for just $40 ($30 upgrade for season ticket and 10-game mini plan holders). Pre-game catch packages are available on a first come, first serve basis, and availability is limited

Also the first 5,000 fans will receive a sample card pack to take home with them. And finally everyone will be able to enjoy all of the exciting activities as part of the weekly Sunday Family Funday schedule. Fans are invited onto the field for a pre-game autograph session with the Ducks from 12:50 to 1:05 p.m. After the game, kids and kids at heart can take part in Kids Run the Bases, presented by Bethpage Federal Credit Union.

Tickets for the day are available at the Ducks ticket office or liducks.com.
