The Atlantic League announced earlier this month that it was set to reach an attendance milestone of 25 million fans. Each team from the Atlantic League chose two fans to represent their teams in Game 3 of the Atlantic League Championship Series. Winners received a special VIP package including tickets to the game, recognition on the field in a pre-game ceremony, an overnight stay, $250 in cash and a team autographed baseball.
The Riversharks have chosen Barb Gilmore and Tony Saban, longtime season ticket holders and Riversharks fans, to represent them tonight at the 2011 Atlantic League Championship Game between the York Revolution and the Long Island Ducks.
"We are thrilled to be sending Barb and Tony to York to represent all Camden Riversharks fans. They are well known and loved by the team, staff, and many other Riversharks fans" said Adam Lorber, Riversharks General Manager.
The mission of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball Clubs, Inc. (AL) is to bring a high level of professional baseball and affordable family entertainment to selected communities not presently being served by Major League or Minor League teams. The Atlantic League began playing in 1998.
“We are excited to celebrate surpassing 25 million fans coming to our ballparks in just our 14th year,” says Atlantic League of Professional Baseball Executive director Joe Klein. “Our goal every year is to provide affordable family entertainment for all baseball fans, and their support is what keeps us going.”
