Welcome to the Silver Sluggers Program at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium!

It All Started With the “Knothole Gang”

For years, Major League and Minor League baseball teams have created programs to reward fans and encourage them to get out to the ballpark. One of the earliest, best known and longest running promotions of this kind is the “Knothole Gang.” Knothole gangs came about as professional ballparks were first being built with wooden fences. Kids who could not pay for a seat found out that the wooden fences provided “spy” holes to watch the games for free. The holes were created when knots in the wood popped out of the fences.

The first “knothole gang” was promoted by New Orleans Pelican’s owner Abner Powell in the late 1880’s. He allowed kids into the stadium to watch games for free as long as they showed good behavior. The St. Louis Cardinals are credited with sponsoring the first “Knothole Gang Club” in Major League baseball. Around 1917, with every $50 purchase of stock in the Cardinals, one bleacher seat was opened up free of charge for the city’s youth. Well known baseball executive Branch Rickey came up with the concept.

Since then, the “knothole gang” has become part of baseball lore. Today the concept has developed into popular sponsorship opportunities at the Major League, Minor League, and college levels. It entails paying a nominal fee that entitles a child to a game ticket and other incentives, including complimentary food, team gear, and other items.

Kids love baseball. But, so do more “experienced” fans. That is why many minor league teams have expanded the “knothole gang” concept to include another group that is as important to the growth of the game as children: Senior Citizens!

“It’s such a great opportunity for local baseball fans,” said Corporate Partnerships Manager Rachel Duewer. “The Silver Sluggers program allows older fans to see great baseball, enjoy a senior-friendly atmosphere, make new friends, and it’s an incredible value! Membership grows each year, which means we are introducing new fans to the game, and as a staff, we couldn’t be happier.”

GOLDLAW enhances the experience for club members by handing out a variety of “swag” and steering members in the right direction if they have any legal concerns. Client Relations Manager Jennifer Fisher oversees the sponsorship for GOLDLAW, and spends almost every Wednesday night of her summer at the ballpark.

“I just love the interaction with the Silver Sluggers,” said Fisher. “They appreciate the gift items we provide, are fun to talk with, and truly enjoy the experience the stadium and the games provide. I know many who have been members for years, and always enjoy meeting new members. It’s a truly unique atmosphere.”
