Toledo Mud Hens
Future major leaguers are among those on the team’s roster, and occasionally fans can see current major leaguers sent down for rehab or to better hone their skills.
A number of special events, promotions and giveaways are held at games throughout the season, including fireworks, which are will be held after a number of games. At every Sunday home game, Hens players sign autographs and kids get to run the bases after the game.
In addition, visitors to Fifth Third Field can enjoy a wide variety of food choices that go way beyond the traditional hot dogs, peanuts and popcorn, including new Cajun fries, Caprese salad, turkey club wraps, Reuben Panini, fried portabella mushrooms and deep fried chocolate chip cookie dough.
Pick up t-shirts, caps and all sorts of fan gear at the Swamp Shop, accessible from inside or outside the stadium.
