Marvel Night at Portland Sea Dogs
6 pm Friday. Hadlock Field, Portland, $11 to $33. portlandsseadogs.com
The list of reasons to go this Sea Dogs game is huge! First off, they’re battling the Somerset Patriots, the Double-A club of the dreaded New York Yankees. Secondly, it’s Marvel Night, meaning players will be wearing special Iron Man jerseys, and Captain Marvel will be there. In fact, you’re encouraged to come dressed as your favorite Marvel hero. Lastly, stick around after the game for a spectacular fireworks display. Nothing says summer like baseball, and the season will be over before you know it.

Sunset by the ocean, followed by a film? Make that a reality for you and especially any kids you know.
