August 20, 2019

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The Portland Sea Dogs have welcomed 10 million fans through their turnstiles.

Maine’s minor league baseball team, an affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, reached the attendance milestone in a Monday night game at Hadlock Field in Portland. The franchise says the fan to set the record was Tabitha Berube of Gray, who was at the game with family.

The Sea Dogs are nearing the end of their 26th season. They’ve been affiliated with the Red Sox since 2003. The team is averaging 5,549 fans per game this season.

The Sea Dogs say they gave Berube a prize package including 2020 season tickets. Berube’s son Jackson also got to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the game.
