Spend Father’s Day Weekend With NJ Minor League Baseball Teams


Baseball season is in full swing across the country. Here in New Jersey, we’re not only blessed with three major league teams just outside our borders, but we’re equally lucky with what we have in the great Garden State.

New Jersey is home to three minor league teams spread across different corners of the state. The Somerset Patriots to the north, the Jersey Shore BlueClaws along the coast and the Trenton Thunder to the west. No matter which one lives closest, it’s worth taking a trip to all of our minor league ballparks for an amazing game.

Speaking of something amazing, it’s almost time to celebrate that amazing person we call dad. This year Father’s Day falls on Sunday, June 19, and there’s plenty of minor league action at our baseball diamonds that Dad would surely enjoy.

So spend some time bonding with Dad at the ballpark on his own day. Believe me, as a father myself, there’s nothing like good play with kids.

Jersey Shore Blue Claws

The Jersey Shore BlueClaws are going all out this Father’s Day weekend. Both home games featuring two very unique experiences that Dad and the kids will really enjoy.

On Saturday, June 18, Phillie Phanatic will make his one and only baseball stadium appearance for the 2022 season. And if that wasn’t enough, the kids also have the opportunity to run the bases. What else could dad ask for?

Then, on Sunday, June 19, play with Dad on the field after the game for their annual Father’s Day game in ShoreTown. And of course, the kids will have another opportunity to lead the bases.

The Jersey Shore BlueClaws will face the Aberdeen IronBirds for Father’s Day weekend with the first pitch at 7:05 p.m. for Saturday’s game and 1:05 p.m. on Sunday. For tickets and more information, Click here.


Somerset Patriots

If you were hoping for some Father’s Day action with the Somerset Patriots, you’ll have to hit the road to catch them. The Patriots will play away against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

The first throw is at 7:05 p.m. on Saturday, June 18 and at 1:35 p.m. on Sunday, June 19. However, if Dad likes to take road trips, this might be a fun adventure to take with him. For more details and ticket information, Click here.

There’s nothing better than enjoying a great baseball game with dad on Father’s Day, and we’re very lucky to have three great minor league teams right here in New Jersey. Whether at home or away, it’s always worth seeing our teams in action.

Speaking of seeing our teams in action, here’s what the Jersey Shore BlueClaws looked like on Opening Day this season. It was a great night then, and Father’s Day will be just as amazing.
