|Jersey Shore BlueClaws|
Opened in 2001, it lured the Cape Fear Crocs - née Fayetteville Generals - north. Originally the Lakewood BlueClaws - Lakewood being a New Jersey township - they changed their locale name from the township's to the region's during the 2020-2021 off-season. The team-township lease runs through 2055!
Relatively unscathed by Hurricane Sandy, the ballpark was a staging area for recovery operations. Despite its stated capacity, 6,500, the 'Claws once packed it so full - 13,003 - they capped per-game sales at 8,000 in 2012. The 13K accrued from a perfect storm of simultaneous factors not likely to be repeated; the 'Claws later rescinded the cap but have not approached 13K since.
Oh - they also won three South Atlantic League championships ...
