PLAY BALL!

Summer is finally here. Hooray! With Summer, the “boys of Summer” have the sports spotlight virtually to themselves right now. Major League Baseball takes center stage until the other American professional sports start up again in the late Summer months. As it stands right now, our hometown Boston Red Sox are looking to be strong contenders in the AL East throughout the season.

While the big league teams soak up an awful lot of national sports coverage, Minor League clubs are just as entertaining. In Maine, we have the Portland Sea Dogs – a successful farm team to the Boston Red Sox. Kevin Youkilis, Dustin Pedroia, Jon Lester, Jacoby Ellsbury, Jackie Bradley, Jr., Mookie Betts, and rookie sensation Andrew Benintendi are all players who donned the Sea Dogs jersey before wearing one for the Sox.

The Sea Dogs play their home games at Hadlock Field in Portland. And – in addition to the typical ballpark offerings at the concourse concession stands at Hadlock (Cracker Jacks, hot dogs, pretzels, and ice cream) – you can also enjoy Maine’s own Farm Fry.

Penobscot McCrum is working with the Sea Dogs to offer Farm Fry to fans watching baseball in Portland for the second year in a row. Feedback has been positive and consistent: baseball fans love Farm Fry!

It doesn’t stop with baseball though. Did you know that Farm Fry is available at a number of sports-related facilities? Everywhere from the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, home of the University of Maine basketball teams and Eastern Maine High School basketball playoffs, to the TD Garden in Boston, home to the Bruins and Celtics. If going to the game isn’t your thing, you can find Farm Fry in a growing list of restaurants including Dysart’s and Hero’s in Bangor, and Kinsale Irish Pub & Restaurant in Boston.

The reason the list is growing is simple: Farm Fry is such a delicious First Class Fry, customers ask for it by name. Make sure you do the same, whether you’re at the game, out to eat, or maybe taking in a concert.

Wondering where you can find Farm Fry? Maybe you’d like to feature it at your restaurant. Contact us here either way!
