Springfield Falcons See Attendance Spike with Lucy Hale Appearance
The Pretty Little Liars actress actually started out as a singer, “This show, I’m so grateful for it; it’s opened up a million doors and allowed me to do things I never thought I’d do,” beamed Hale.
She says she has made it full circle, returning to her roots with the release of her new single, “You Sound Good to Me”.
Hale’s visit made the Falcon’s audience look a little bit different. “It’s really exciting to see the game too, but I’m really excited to see Lucy Hale,” said 13-year-old Shannon Freschette. “It’s not normally a young teen group here, especially on an afternoon game. It’s a lot of people in general, especially like families,” Heather Stebbins noticed.
“Attendance is spotty, I mean, last Saturday night we had a great crowd, almost 5,800 here. Afternoon games, Sundays, and Mondays, but attendance is picking up,” said Falcons President Bruce Landon.
Landon notes that these promotions help attendance, and may even snag a few new fans. “Good looking guys on the ice? Yeah, I understand, I get it,” Hale joked.
The Falcons expect their next big draw to be Red Sox night on January 25th.
The Falcons will also have upcoming appearances from Patriots and Bruins players.
