“It’s important to us to recognize the efforts of first responders to serve and protect our communities every day,” said Somerset Patriots President/General Manager Patrick McVerry. “These are the men and women that keep us safe, that are always on call, and selflessly run towards danger when needed so others are out of harm’s way. It’s our privilege to welcome them as our guests to enjoy a night out with their family and friends.”
