The Patriots will also also host a Pokémon location contest.

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.
