Mr. Barry Waite representative from the Upstate New York Toyota Dealers Association and owner of the Waite Toyota dealership said, “We are happy to be firmly rooted amongst our community and now are pleased to have the opportunity to create a relationship with the Watertown Rapids.” You can pick up your opening day tickets at the Waite Toyota dealership on Outer Washington Street in Watertown.
Our Director of Baseball Operations Nate Matteson shared our brand new mascot for the 2022 season “WAZOO The Bleacher Creature”. Wazoo will be around the stadium periodically throughout the games entertaining the fans.
