We all know the words to the song Take Me Out to the Ball Game. Did you know that ballparks welcome dogs to certain games? "Bark at the Park" outings have become quite popular. This gives you the chance to sit beside your doodle while taking in a baseball game.
Here are the Bark at the Park schedules for our local teams.
Sit together with fellow dog lovers in designated Coca-Cola Corner seats. A portion of the dog ticket and of the human ticket will benefit North Shore Animal League America. Dogs will only be allowed in the Coca-Cola Corner at Citi Field.
Arrive early to the Bullpen Gate with your game tickets to participate in the Dog Parade (weather permitting). This gate opens 1 1/2 hours before game time. Those not participating in the parade, must also enter via the Bullpen Gate. Sorry late arrivals, will not be permitted on field for the parade. Approximately one half hour prior to the start of game, all dogs will be directed to the Right Field Gate for direct access to the Coca-Cola Corner.
Wednesday, May 18th at 7:10 PM vs. Nationals
Wednesday, September 21st at 7:10 PM vs. Braves
Tickets can be purchased here.
The Yankees do not have a dog-day scheduled for the 2016 season.
