For the second straight year, it’s not going to cost fans anything to get into the Saint John Sea Dogs’ pre-season opener.
The Sea Dogs officially announced today on social media that tickets to the team’s Thursday, Aug. 13 exhibition game against the Acadie-Bathurst Titan will be free of charge.
Last year, an announced crowd of 6,377 watched the Sea Dogs stomp the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 7-2 to open up the pre-season. Although the game was listed as a packed house there were plenty of empty seats.Exhibition tickets on sale to season ticket holders @harbourstation. 1st game vs @ABTitan is Fan Appreciation with no charge for admission!— Saint John Sea Dogs (@SJSeaDogs) July 29, 2015
