Not long ago, when you thought of the complete summer at the Jersey Shore, it was all beaches, boardwalks and barbecues. Not any more.

I really believe that a summer at the Jersey Shore is not complete without a few visits to FirstEnergy Park for a Lakewood BlueClaws game. Add the BlueClaws to the "must-do" list for Summer 2018.

Diane and I attended a radio station get together last night in the Picnic area, and we brought our grandson Jonathan who absolutely had the best time. His night included hot dogs and watermelon, his first official BlueClaws baseball and his first visit with Buster, and RipTide.

It was a really fun night and just a reminder to me what a great night out for the whole family a trip to FirstEnergy Park for a BlueClaws game is. It didn't hurt that it was a gorgeous June night either.

So, as you schedule your summer plans this year, make sure you carve out some time to catch a Lakewood BlueClaws game. Summer fun at the Jersey Shore! Check out the upcoming BlueClaws schedule. Tonight (6/14/18) is Military Appreciation Night!
