Life in the Minors

Hadlock Field

For nine years Sea Dog fans have been greeted by the statue of their popular mascot,
Slugger, adorned in the teal & black of the Marlins' AA farm team.

It will be a few years before
Boston rebuilds the farm system and
pennants like these appear at the ballpark.

Hit the mitt and win the jackpot!
Each game the jackpot increases by $100.
If a batted ball hits the mitt,
that player splits the jackpot with a local charity.

in right field foul territory, and Portland Expo.

The playing field existed before the Sea Dogs came to be.
Due to space constraints, the locker rooms were located
in the Expo at a great tax savings.

Sea Dogs uniform is ready to greet
Red Sox minor leaguers and Sea Dogs fans.
