Ducks Were The 2013 Atlantic League
The Long Island Ducks defeated the
Somerset Patriots in Game Five of the
Atlantic League Championship Series. The
Ducks won the best-of-five series three
games to two and were the 2013 Atlantic
This is the third Atlantic League
Championship in Ducks history and the
second consecutive Atlantic League
title. The Ducks won their first
Championship in 2004 with a three-game
sweep of the Camden Riversharks and won
their second in 2012 with a 3-2 series
victory over the Lancaster Barnstormers.
The Ducks have now won the second-most
Championships in Atlantic League history
behind the Somerset's five titles.
you’re here on Long Island, chances are you’ve heard
of the Long Island Ducks, Long Island’s own baseball
team. The "Ducks” were founded in 2000 and play their
home games at Bethpage Ballpark in Central Islip.
Rather than being an “MLB” affiliated team, the
Ducks are in the Liberty Division of the independent
Atlantic League of Professional Baseball. In fact,
the Long Island Ducks were League Champions in 2004, 2012,
and 2013 and they were the Division Champions in
2004, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Even if you’re not nuts about baseball, as so many
people are, there’s a lot to like, even love, about
the Long Island Ducks. First, there’s the field they
play at, Bethpage Ballpark in Central Islip. It’s
centrally located, you won’t hit much traffic
getting to or from the field and parking is FREE and
readily available. If you’ve gone to a Mets
or Yankees game, you
know how important these things can be.
Bethpage Ballpark itself is downright cozy seating
6,002 fans compared to the typical 40,000 to 50,000
seats at a Major League ballpark. If you’ve ever
attended a Spring Training game in the Majors, you
already know what it’s like at Bethpage Ballpark. There
are no “nosebleed” seats where you need binoculars
to see what’s going on out on the field. In fact,
there aren’t any bad seats at all. As you can see from the photos below and
seating diagram, all of the seating is close in
where you can really see the action.
Bud Harrelson, former NY Mets shortstop on the 1969
World Series Champions, along with
Frank Boulton and Seth Waugh are the owners of the Ducks. Having attended many Ducks games over
the past ten or so years, it’s clear to us their
goal is fun, affordable, entertainment. You can buy
individual game tickets as well as season tickets
plans along with group tickets. Groups
can enjoy the Smokin’ Al’s Party Deck, Picnic Area and
Luxury Suite opportunities at the ballpark, and fans can
celebrate their Birthday Party with the Ducks as well! There’s a “Kids Club” program
and even baseball clinics for the kids. As you can
see, a day at a Ducks game is about a lot more
I think it’s also important to mention the many
contributions the Ducks make to our Long Island
QuackerJack, the team’s mascot, is
constantly on the move making appearances around
Long Island to support a wide array of children’s
programs and community fundraisers. The QuackerJack
Foundation, the charitable arm of the Long Island Ducks,
contributes to thousands of non-profit and like
organizations each year while bringing awareness to
worthy programs and causes in need of assistance on Long
Island. The Ducks
maintain a Speakers Bureau and they promote and
participate in many environmentally conscious
programs through the team’s “Go Green” initiative.
So, isn’t it time to take in a ballgame? Here’s this
season’s schedule and Bethpage Ballpark’s
We’ll be adding information from time to time about

events that are taking place. Why don’t you come on
