Lure modules will be in full effect throughout the night, with two Pokestops on site. All fans planning to participate in these contests are required to purchase a ticket to the game.

With TD Bank Ballpark recognized as an official Pokémon Go gym location, the first contest puts each Poke-masters to the test in battle! Any fan that is able to claim a spot on the ballpark’s top-three gym leaderboard by the end of the night will earn a prize.

Fans will also compete against each other to see who can catch the most Pokémon in the ballpark during the game. Ambitious Poke-masters can check in at the customer service kiosk on the ballpark's main concourse for geo-tagged verification on the time, location and number of Pokémon captured throughout the game.

The Patriots will also also host a Pokémon location contest. Fans can take pictures of the most interesting places they have spotted or caught Pokémon throughout the ballpark during the game and tag any Patriots’ social media account using #PatriotsGo, with the top picture at the end of the night earning a prize!

Teens can purchase two upper box tickets and $10 worth of Diamond Dollars for $20 as a part of the Teen-Night Tuesday ticket promotion. Teens must purchase tickets in person and show their school IDs at the ballpark ticket office to receive the discount.

Tuesday also marks the second Bark In The Park night of the 2016 season, with the first 500 dogs receiving chew toys.
