Atlantic City Surf Baseball

Minor league baseball is about the promotions, enjoying a cold one, ballpark food, family time, and having fun relaxing in the stands. Tonight's Atlantic City Surf game should provide for all of those elements.

Every Thursday homegame is "Bud Light Thirsty Thursday". That's right, all drinks are $1 all game long. The Surf play the Ottawa Rapidz tonight at 7:05PM.

And there is plenty of other fun to be had: There's "Splash" (the team's mascot), entertaining promotions between-innings, and much more to see and do.

Homegames are played at Bernie Robbins Stadium, which is located on Albany Avenue next to Bader Field (see map below). Tickets run $8-11 for adults, and $5 for kids, seniors, and military.

The next home game will be August 8th (fireworks after the game).

Have fun at the ballpark!
