A charter team in the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, the Bridgeport Bluefish brought league glory back to the Ballpark at Harbor Yard with a division championship won during the 2010 season’s second half. Watch the Bluefish go cap to cap with division rivals such as the Camden Riversharks from the comfort of a Bluefish Luxury Suite, which hosts up to 25 clients, coworkers, friends, or possessed baseball cards comfortably. Spectators track pitch counts from outdoor seats and climate-controlled indoor seating, or scrutinize batting stances with an up-close peek at one of the box’s flat-screen televisions. Though not included with this Groupon, personal waitstaff service is available to fulfill catering orders put in by gracious suite hosts hoping to quell yearnings for hot dogs or obsessions with Crackerjack. Mascot B.B. the Bluefish's between-innings shenanigans keep things lively, and promotions, giveaways, and callouts on the video board and PA system show the team's gratitude more effectively than having ticket takers scream "thanks!" in each fan's face.
In 2012, the Bluefish became the first team in Atlantic League history to reach 1,000 victories. It was a huge milestone for a franchise that today, stands as one of only two remaining charter teams throughout the entire league. The 'Fish initially brought baseball back to Park City in 1998, and advanced to the league championship series in a losing effort. A year later, though, they returned with their first league title after defeating the Somerset Patriots.
The team's early success established a winning tradition–in fact, the Bluefish didn't suffer their first losing season until their eighth year of existence. Winning hasn't been the only tradition in Bridgeport, however. The Bluefish battle the Long Island Ducks every season for the Ferry Cup, trying to establish regional supremacy on the baseball diamond instead of by firing a barrage of used baseballs across the Long Island Sound.
