"We look forward to providing our fans and the community with another ten seasons of the most affordable, family entertainment in the region," IronBirds General Manager Aaron Moszer said in the news release. "We've had 2.5 million fans through the turnstiles so far, and we're looking forward to the next 2.5 million."
