The Patriots have invited Teachers of the Year from each school in the counties to attend a Teacher Appreciation Night at TD Bank Ballpark. The Patriots will recognize the teachers on the field in a pre-game ceremony beginning at approximately 6:10 pm on each county’s respective night.
The first night is scheduled for Tuesday, May 22nd when the Patriots will welcome Somerset and Union County Schools’ Teachers of the Year. The Somerset County Teacher Appreciation is part of a long-time partnership with the Somerset County Education Association.
On Wednesday, May 23rd, the Patriots will honor Middlesex and Hunterdon Teachers of the Year. The Patriots and Middlesex County Education Association have partnered for the event once again.
“Our Teacher Appreciation Nights are very special parts of our season. We know how hard teachers work all year and we want to make sure they know that the community appreciates all that they do for our kids,” said Somerset Patriots President/General Manager Patrick McVerry.” These nights are designed as a special thank you to all teachers and to showcase those that received the recognition as their schools’ Teacher of the Year.”
The Patriots are providing tickets to the teachers, their guests, and their classes to come out to the ballpark for these special nights.
The Patriots are encouraging all teachers to come out to the game to support their peers. All teachers that show their school ID badge at the Patriots Ticket Office on game day will receive a free Upper Box ticket to the Teacher Appreciation Night for their county.
The 2018 Somerset Patriots Season presented by Ford is underway and features the team’s 20th Season at TD Bank Ballpark. For tickets, visit www.somersetpatriots.com.
