Burlington, NC—Burlington Royals

With a month left in the season, and a championship playoff run around the corner we thought we would check in.  A few highlights so far:

*Attendance is at an all-time high, another 22% higher than a record setting 2015.  Fans have thoroughly enjoyed the 2016 season and the all of the ballpark renovations.

*We currently have the best record in the Appalachian League, sitting in first place.

*Last week, we were recognized on many national media outlets including ESPN, USA Today, MLB Network for our Emoji Jersey/Social Media Weekend promotion.  Not only was it great promotion, but raised over $3,500 for our local Boys & Girls Club of Alamance County.

*We have raised over $10,000 and counting for local Alamance County community non-profit organizations.

*We are looking to reach ONE MILLION minutes read for our Home Run Summer Reading Program which concludes next week with a big celebration for all summer readers in Alamance County.

*Most importantly, we continue to put smiles on folks of all ages visiting Burlington Athletic Stadium.

Play Ball,
Miranda, Ryan and your entire Burlington Royals organization
