  LAKEWOOD – Although we are just now entering the fall season, the Lakewood BlueClaws already have their sights set on springtime. The BlueClaws recently announced that their 20th season will open on April 16 with a 6:35 p.m. game against the Greensboro Grasshoppers (Pirates).

  “It is an exciting time of the year for us,” said Joe Ricciutti, BlueClaws Team President & General Manager. “We’re in the midst of building out a great promotional schedule and celebratory events for our 20th season. We can’t wait for April 16th!”

  All weeknight BlueClaws games will be at 6:35 p.m. throughout April and May and move to 7:05 p.m. beginning in June. Saturday games will be at 4:05 p.m. throughout April and May and at 7:05 p.m. from June through the end of the season. All Sunday games will start at 1:05 p.m. with the exception of the game on Sunday, June 28 which will begin at 5:05 p.m.

  In addition to regular games, the BlueClaws will also feature:

  • Education Days, 11:05 a.m.: April 22, May 12, and May 27
  • Camp Days, 11:05 a.m.: July 14 and July 22

  Additional promotions, theme nights, Premium Items, and Giveaway Items will be announced at a later date.

  Affiliates of both the Mets and Yankees come to FirstEnergy Park this year. Columbia (Mets) will be in town from April 30 through May 3 and again from June 18 through June 21. Charleston (Yankees) comes to Lakewood from July 21 through July 23.

  The BlueClaws are hoping to make the 2020 season another successful one. In 2019, the team saw 20 sell-out crowds, including a season-finale crowd of 10,754 that was the second largest in team history. While the home opener isn’t until April 16, the BlueClaws will open the season on April 9 at Greensboro.
