Playoff tickets on sale now, to benefit charity

The Long Island Ducks are teaming up with the March of Dimes to help raise money to support the organization during the 2013 Atlantic League playoffs. One dollar of every individual playoff ticket purchased online this year will be donated to the March of Dimes and their efforts in the areas of research, education and service for mothers and newborns. Fans purchasing playoff tickets online this year will be supporting TWO great causes – the March of Dimes and the Ducks’ playoff run.

“We are excited to partner with the March of Dimes for our ‘March to the Title’ in 2013,” says Ducks president and general manager Michael Pfaff. “As we defend our Atlantic League championship, we’re pleased to also be helping a worthy cause.”

Box seats (200 level) are available for just $11.00 while field box seats (100 level) are $12.00 and club level seats (400 level) are $15.00.

“We are proud to partner with the Long Island Ducks as they make a run to defend their title,” says Joe Jankowski, Community Director at the March of Dimes. “But most importantly, every person participating in this effort is now a champion in their own right. A champion for the babies of Long Island.”

The Ducks will host Games One and Two of the best-of-five Atlantic League Championship Series on Wednesday, September 25 and Thursday, September 26 against the Freedom Division champion Somerset Patriots. Both games are slated to begin at 6:35 p.m.
