All remaining partial ticket package holders will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis through the exclusive purchasing window, which will end on February 20th.

All season ticket package holders will receive exclusive access to the Fan Fest, which will be held prior to the Home Run Derby and will feature early entrance to the ballpark and a private autograph session with the Northwoods League All-Star players.
