As the now first-place Mallards return home tonight to take on the North Division leading Duluth Huskies, history could be made in possibly two different ways.
Set on 999,076 fans since the Mallards opened their doors in 2001, only 924 fans are needed to push the Madison franchise over the 1 million mark. Also, with last night’s 12-6 victory over the Battle Creek Bombers, the Mallards tied the Green Bay Bullfrogs for the Northwoods League record for consecutive wins (15). The team will try to be the single record holder in tonight’s ballgame. Before the Bullfrogs broke the record earlier this season, the record win streak was held by Waterloo, which strung together 14-consecutive wins.
As publicized, the Mallards will remember the moment of their 1-millionth fan by constructing a statue of the fan’s likeness. The statue will serve as the perfect reminder that the Mallards’ success over the past seven years couldn’t have happened without its fans’ undeniable love for great baseball and entertainment.
Anticipating the approximate time, fans are encouraged to arrive between 6-6:30 p.m. Thursday to increase their chances of being the lucky 1-millionth Mallards fan.
Great seats are still available for all four games of this final homestand and can be purchased and printed by visiting Mallardsbaseball.com or by calling the ticket office at 246.4277.
