Marketing Opportunities Join our team for the 2017 season!

For over 120 years, our pro baseball club has indeed been the hometown team.

Community-owned since 1957, Rochester Community Baseball Inc. and the Red Wings provide a high quality, affordable, family entertainment product for fans in the five-county Greater Rochester area.

The Red Wings posted a fourth straight winning season on the field in 2016 and a paid attendance total of 434,897 (average of 6,396). More talent is on the way from the highly ranked Minnesota Twins farm system, with our Double-A club and two Class-A clubs also posting winning records in 2016.

But fans don't come to Frontier Field just for the baseball. Our affordable outdoor fun, dining variety and quality, innovative promotions, giveaways and theme nights add up to a winning atmosphere at every home game. Our dynamic entertainment experience helps to make fans receptive to the messages and products of our marketing partners!

A DISTINGUISHED ORGANIZATION

Minor League Baseball honored us with the John H. Johnson President's Award in 2004, given to one of the 174 Minor League Baseball front office staffs. The Johnson Award is presented to a "complete" baseball franchise that has demonstrated franchise stability, and significant contributions to its community, its league, and to the baseball industry.

In October 2008, Ballpark Digest named the Rochester Red Wings as co-winners of the "Ongoing Excellence" Award for the 2008 season. An August 2008 Scarborough Research report listed Rochester as the #1 market in the country for interest in Minor League Baseball™. A separate 2008 Scarborough report, ranking the Top Sports Towns in the U.S. based on fan interest, listed Rochester tied for fourth with major league markets like Denver and Cleveland.

Our June 2014 Batman and Robin Night promotion was named one of 10 Promo of the Year finalists in the 2014 MiLB.com MiLBY Awards, and our August 2015 Miracle on Ice Night was named one of 10 Promo of the Year finalists in the 2015 MiLBY Awards.

In August of 2015, Rochester was ranked 20th (out of 229 markets) on SportsBusiness Journal's study of the country's Top Minor League Markets. In October 2015, Stadium Journey magazine ranked Frontier Field as the top place to see a game in the International League.
