The BlueClaws have been the Jersey Shore’s hometown team since 2001.
Now, as the community gets ready to return for another summer, fans will walk through the gates of a stadium with a new name: ShoreTown Ballpark.
“The Jersey Shore sits at the forefront of our identity,” said Matin. “We can’t think of anything better than a day at the ballpark with friends or family. It’s time away from the grind of everyday life. It’s a ballgame, boardwalk games, mini golf, a hot dog, and a cold beer.
“ShoreTown Ballpark is the next step in that transformation for the Jersey Shore’s Hometown Team.”
Prior to the 2018 season, the team opened The Boardwalk, an area in centerfield with a series of popular boardwalk favorites including Ring Toss, Cat Rack, and Balloon Darts. Additionally, the Manasquan Bank Mini Golf Course opened that year. The 9-hole family course has holes named for famous BlueClaws players and is a great addition to the stadium atmosphere.
The transition of the team’s name to the Jersey Shore BlueClaws, which was unveiled in October of 2020, was the next phase. The team played the 2021 season as the Jersey Shore BlueClaws for the first time, including a new set of hats and jerseys.
Now, as the curtain rises on the 2022 season, the BlueClaws are set to transition to a park hosting the same great fun, but with a new name, ShoreTown Ballpark.
2022 single-game BlueClaws tickets will go on sale Saturday morning at 8:00 am online and in-person at ShoreTown Ballpark from 1 pm until 3 pm. The BlueClaws open the season on Friday, April 8th.
