Why Come to the Long Island Ducks Stadium instead of a major league game?
It's family oriented, interactive and much closer to home. The Long Island Ducks Stadium brings about a lot of team spirit and you get the major league feel cheering on the team.
There is plenty of food to eat and it's much cheaper than going to see the Mets at Citifield Stadium in Queens or the Yankees stadium in the Bronx. Those stadiums are much larger, with thousands of people and you can't get too up close and personal unless you have great seats. There is more of a community feel when attending a game at the Long Island Ducks stadium.
Another perk? The parking is free! You can't beat that. Event parking at Yankee Stadium starts at $35.00. That's three times the cost of a ticket for the Ducks.
The team has strong ties in the community and there are various events at the ballpark. This March they hosted a peanut free day to increase awareness and educate people regarding nut allergies.
The stadium is located at 3 Court House Dr. in Central Islip, NY, in Suffolk County. The ballpark is very easy to get to - it's right off the southern state. There are directions on the official
There are 20 luxury suites and 6,002 regular seats in the stadium. Tickets are not expensive - they start at $11.00 When you are at the stadium, you can trade in your cash for duck's cash to be used to purchase anything you can find at the stadium.
A Little Bit of History:
The Long Island Ducks had it's first game on May 14th, 2000. Since 2001, the stadium was owned by Citigroup and called "Citibank Park". In 2010, Citibank ended it's sponsorship and the ballpark went under the name of "Suffolk County Sports Park". At the end of 2010 a deal was made between Suffolk County Officials and Bethpage Federal Credit Union and as a result, the ballpark is currently named "Bethpage Ballpark". This name will continue until the year 2020.
