Kids Love the Rochester Red Wings

Rochester Red Wings

For inexpensive family fun, you just can't beat an afternoon or evening watching a live baseball game. Frontier Field, the home of our Triple-A Rochester Red Wings Baseball Club, gives your baseball experience a community flavor impossible at a major-league park. Combine the price tag (it costs less to take your family to a Red Wings game than to a movie) with the family closeness and sense of community, and it becomes an opportunity not to be missed. And if you show up on a Tuesday night with your Wegmans Shoppers Club card, you'll get the Wegmans Family Four-Pack: Four reserved seat tickets, four hot dogs, four 12-oz. soft drinks, and a yearbook...for only $25!

Knot Hole Gang

    The Knot Hole Gang is the Red Wings special club for kids 14 and under. It is presented by Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield. Membership costs just $3 per season. There are 12 special Knot Hole Gang games this season; for Knot Hole Gang members, each Knot Hole game costs only $3 and adults accompanying the member get $1 off their ticket. (What that means is that because the minimum price of a standard ticket is $6, you save starting the very first game!) Membership also includes a coupon for a free Coca-Cola product and a free Spikes poster.

    How can kids sign up to be members? Some mail-in forms have been distributed through the schools, but the easiest way to do it is right at the ballpark. Just go to the Guest Service booth or the box office before or during any game.

Birthday Parties at Frontier Field

    Celebrate your child's birthday at Frontier Field! Birthday party packages include a decorated table, Abbott's Custard Cake and soda, announcement of the child's birthday over the loudspeaker and his or her photo displayed on the scoreboard during the game. Each party guest receives a yearbook and a free round at the Speed Pitch game. The guest of honor receives a choice of special gift. Optionally, you can include hot dogs or pizza for an extra charge.

Freetime Baseball Buddies

    Freetime Magazine sponsors the Freetime Baseball Buddies program at Frontier Field. Any area youth baseball team can sign up to:

    • Attend a Red Wings game at Frontier Field
    • Be introduced on the field before the game
    • Stand on the field with the Red Wings for the National Anthem
    • Receive a free Red Wings cap

    Baseball Buddies registration forms can be found in Freetime Magazine starting in the March issue. The Red Wings administration draws a team at random to participate in each game.

Friday Fireworks

    Don't forget...every Friday night home game has a fireworks display immediately following the game.
