Friday News & Notes

Tomorrow will be a big day at Harbour Station.

For the first time, the Saint John Mill Rats and Saint John Sea Dogs will play in the building on the same day. The Mill Rats take on the Halifax Hurricanes at 2 p.m. while the Sea Dogs host the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles at 8 p.m.

The two teams are holding a ticket promotion for season ticket holders. From the Mill Rats’ press release:
To commemorate the first ever 'Saint John Sports Day' the two teams are offering a season ticket holder promotion: the first 500 fans that show their current season tickets at the box office will be able to purchase a $5 ticket* to the Sea Dog's playoff game as well. 
The Sea Dogs likewise are offering their season ticket holders the opportunity to attend the Mill Rats 2 p.m. game on Saturday for $5 also. *A box office fee of $1 applies.

The Mill Rats’ release claimed this was the first NBL Canada/CHL doubleheader in history, but there is some debate about that.
Doubleheaders happen quite a bit in professional sports. TD Garden in Boston holds them frequently.
