Little Falls, NJ – June 13 – The Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center and the New Jersey Jackals are partnering this season to provide baseball fans with a unique all-around experience. For a special package rate of $15, visitors can combine a trip to the iconic Hall of Famer’s signature Museum with a Jackals game. The new doubleheader offer will kick off on Thursday, June 15, when the Jackals play against the national team from the Dominican Republic. The offer is also available for games against Cuba’s national team the following week and extends into August.
“The Museum is very excited to be working closely with the Jackals’ new ownership,” said Eve Schaenen, Executive Director of the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center. “We want visitors to view the Museum and Yogi Berra Stadium as part of a complete baseball and community experience. This joint ticket reinforces that idea in the most natural way.”
The games covered by the special ticket include four days of international play, an opportunity unique to the Jackals’ Can-Am League. National teams from the Dominican Republic and Cuba draw scores of dedicated fans, including many from surrounding towns with large Dominican and Cuban populations that take pride in their heritage.
Beyond this special package offer, the Museum and the Jackals have plans for future cooperation in the works, all of which leverage the proximity of Museum and ballfield, which are directly beside one another.
“The Yogi Berra Museum has always been an amazing place for baseball fans to learn about the game’s rich history,” said Jackals’ owner Al Dorso. “Yogi was such an integral part of this community and we are so happy the Jackals can partner with the wonderful museum that bears his name to give fans an opportunity to spend a day learning about baseball history and taking in a fun and exciting Jackals baseball game.”
