Somerset County owns the highly successful TD Bank Park, a 6,100 seat minor league baseball facility located in Bridgewater Township. The ballpark is home to the Atlantic League's Somerset Patriots; the Patriots manage the ballpark operations.
Since the sell-out opening on June 7, 1999, the ballpark has continued to attract strong attendance and fan support. The facility and team consistently draw over 5,300 fans per game and average annual attendance exceeds 370,000. The Somerset Patriots recognized their 6 millionth fan in 2015. Ballpark Digest named TD Bank Park "The Best Independent Minor League Ballpark" in 2015.
The $17.5 million facility was self-financed by the county and all costs are repaid by revenues received through the lease of the stadium to the Somerset Patriots. The current lease continues through 2032 and provides for fixed payments by the Patriots to meet the annual debt service requirements, plus a contribution to a dedicated maintenance account for future capital costs.
