Baseball Just Became Sweeter! UDairy Creamery is the Official Ice Cream of the Wilmington Blue Rocks


UDairy Creamery is the official ice cream of the Wilmington Blue Rocks and will be served at Frawley Stadium for the next two seasons (at least).  

All of the ice cream is being produced at the University of Delaware's creamery by the UD AAP students. Students also have the opportunity to work shifts at the stadium.  All the UDairy staff is thrilled for the growth opportunity and another way to reach the community. There will be five of their classic flavors available at the stadium.  The students also came up with three additional flavor ideas.  In May, voting will open to the public and one of those flavors will become the new custom flavor for the Blue Rocks sometime in June.
