Rochester is the biggest minor league city in the U.S. There’s no Division 1 college and none of the Big Four major sports, but we have family-friendly sports at family-friendly prices, and that’s a real benefit. -Jim Haefner, Excellus BCBS
Local professional sports enhances the quality to our community and instills community pride. -Tim Smith, Otetiana Council, Boy Scouts of America
Accessibility coupled with reasonable parking make the Red Wings an easy winner. Excellent fan promotions and accommodations, plus a reasonable price make an evening with the Wings a great summer night. We frequently bring out-of-town guests to the park. -Al Hinkle, Geneseo
I think it would be an absolute shame if any of our sports teams left the area. As a young professional, these games are something I look forward to attending and make me excited about living in Rochester. -Rachel Henderson, Rochester Hearing and Speech Center
The Red Wings are an institution in Rochester. I’ve attended their games over a 50-year period and never fail to enjoy each new experience. -Al Schnucker, Schnucker Packaging Inc.
