The Portland Sea Dogs along with the Maine Track Club will host their 12th Annual Mother’s Day 5K Road Race on Sunday, May 13, 2012 at 9:15am with the Kids Fun Run at 8:30am. You’ll want to register early as the very popular race will once again cap the field of entrants at 3,000, and the first 1,500 will receive a free t-shirt. Yes, there have been some disappointed folks come race day who waited too long to register and either did not get into the field or missed out on a great t-shirt for their collection.

A great course for the 5k with a nice finish inside Hadlock Field along the third base line in front of the visitor’s dugout. The Portland Sea Dogs management always puts on a great event and take pride in what this race has become….so much so that they will be hosting their 4th Annual Father’s Day 5K Road Race on Sunday, June 17, 2012. “Make it a Doubleheader” as they say and register for both today. Heck, make it a family event and see who walks away with the bragging rights!!

Hadlock Field – Home of the Portland Sea Dogs

Portland Sea Dog Logo

The current home to the Portland Sea Dogs, AA-affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, opened it doors April 18, 1994, when the Sea Dogs, then an affiliate of the Florida Marlins, played host to the Albany-Colonie Yankees, losing 7-6.

With the Sea Dogs now an affiliate of the Boston Red Sox since the 2003 season, Hadlock Field has been transformed into a mini-Fenway Park of sorts.  Switch out the Green Monster (240 feet long and 37 feet tall) for the “Maine Monster” a replica which stands equally at 37 feet tall and 160 feet long. The only thing missing….the Maine Monster is an electronic scoreboard and made of wood, unlike the Green Monster’s hard plastic/metal finish and manually operated features. Add to “Maine Monster” a smaller version of the Citgo sign and replica Coke bottles and you have yourself a mini-Fenway Park right here in Portland, Maine. The park also features one of only two elevated bullpens in Minor League Baseball.

To add a bit of Maine flavor to the games, Hadlock Field features a Lighthouse that rises from centerfield when the Sea Dogs hit a home run or win the game. In between innings there are a number of games featuring local businesses with one favorite being the Lobster Toss, where contestants try to catch plastic lobsters thrown into the air with lobster traps. Off the field, the management has added more Red Sox flavor, naming their sky boxes behind the stands after Red Sox greats, like Carl Yastrzemski and Ted Williams.

Each year from April to September, the crowds in Portland have continued to support their Sea Dogs, as Hadlock Field has had six major renovations to bring the capacity from 6,000 in 1994, to just under 7,400 today, and many game are sold out throughout the season…and not just on Bobblehead nights!

Make your way to Hadlock Field to catch a Sea Dogs game. You might just catch a foul ball, or better yet a soon to be Major League All-Star. Go Sea Dogs!
