From Press Release
Morehead City, N.C. – After much debated discussion, the Morehead City Marlins were finally awarded a trial sale of alcohol for the 2012 season, as well as an extension through the 2013 season to play at Puck O’Neal Field at Big Rock Stadium. During the previous two seasons, the Town of Morehead City prohibited the sale of alcohol at their ballpark. The new majority Council didn’t waste any time getting acclimated to their new roles and put a much debated topic for the last two years to rest. The Council voted 3-2 allowing the Marlins the opportunity to sell alcohol at Big Rock Stadium next season on a trial basis.

History certainly has a way of repeating itself as the Marlins were given a ‘trial run’ in their opening season of 2010. Since the historic first year, the Marlins have provided a family-fun atmosphere as seen throughout many minor league settings. With many regulations already in place, the Marlins will work vigorously with the Town of Morehead City and the ALE Division to ensure the safety of fans and promote responsibility at Big Rock Stadium. The Marlins will take the necessary precautions to maintain the family-friendly ambiance that has been displayed over the past two years.

“On behalf of the organization, I would like to thank the Town Council for their eagerness to come to a resolution during their meeting and for the comments of all concerned citizens,” said Morehead City Marlins General Manager Christopher Marmo. “We certainly understand the importance of maintaining our family-friendly environment and carefully abiding by strict policies while adding another option to the ball park. With prior experiences in providing alcohol at other entertainment venues, I am confident my staff and I will undertake the proper preparations before we embark upon our third year in Morehead City.”
