Three Million: The Long Island Ducks are set to welcome their three millionth fan today. Here’s the press release…

All season long, the Long Island Ducks and Bethpage Federal Credit Union have been counting down to the 3 millionth fan to enjoy Ducks baseball in Central Islip. After tonight’s attendance of 5,401, Long Island is now just 4,308 fans away from reaching the magical mark. With a season average of over 5,900 fans a game, the Ducks will welcome their 3 millionth fan tomorrow.

The lucky 3 millionth fan will receive $5,000 from Bethpage Federal Credit Union along with a commemorative “3 Millionth Fan” official Ducks jersey. For the duration of the barrier-breaking game, the Ducks and Bethpage Federal Credit Union will pull out all of the stops for the 3 millionth fan, giving them a most-unique game day experience. To start the celebration, the Ducks will roll out the red carpet, complete with confetti as he/she enters the ballpark. The 3 millionth fan will then head down to the field for the pregame festivities. To cap off the historic evening, the 3 millionth fan’s entrance into Citibank Park will be prominently displayed on the Ducks’ homepage, http://www.liducks.com , as the Pic of the Day. – Mike Ashmore
