The Point Craft River is located down the third baseline at Witter Field, with a built in river system that delivers canned craft beer to fans via rafts down a live water current. A reserved ticket is $32 and includes a seat at the water-powered bar while a general admission ticket is $27 and will provide access to tables behind the bar. Food is also be provided through the end of the fifth inning as part of the ticket price along with the unlimited craft drinks. The venue is available to both the walk-up crowd as well as groups of any size.
New this season, fans 21 and older will be able to pre-purchase a punch card for $93 that will allow them to select three games of their choice, based on availability. There will be one punch allowed per card per game that is attended. Attending the third game and collecting the final punch will result in the card holder receiving a FREE “I Navigated The Point Craft River” t-shirt. Games may be pre-selected or can be selected game by game throughout the season, however no ticket exchanges will be allowed once the game has been selected for this limited seating venue.
