Even though the Dash did not post a great record, the 2014 season included some fantastic moments, many of which we have rehashed over the last couple of weeks. However, these milestones, awards and records would not have been possible without one important thing…


The Winston-Salem Dash enjoy success, both on and off the field, due to the unending support from the fans. Since moving into BB&T Ballpark in 2010, more than 1.5 million fans have enjoyed Dash baseball here in the Triad. Only one other organization in Class A-Advanced baseball has welcomed more fans during this span than the Dash.

A year ago, a single-game record 7,576 fans took in the Dash’s Fourth of July game, which took place despite a rough weather evening. This year, Winston-Salem residents experienced a picture-perfect Fourth of July weekend.

This weather contributed to an even bigger attendance figure on July 4. For the first time in BB&T Ballpark history, a whopping total of 8,184 spectators watched Wilmington’s 5-0 win over Winston-Salem.

Even though the game did not go the way that Dash fans desired, the atmosphere were electric. The concourses were jam-packed. The place to be in the Triad was BB&T Ballpark, because of both the game and the fireworks.

This community has embraced the Dash organization, and that fact was more evident on July 4 than on any other night.

Thanks to each and every one of you who attended a Dash game in 2014. You are the reason why the Dash recorded another incredibly successful season.

Our Dash Top 10 for 2014 is in the books. Stay tuned for more offseason news and notes here on the Dash Board.

By The Fans, For The Fans

In Winston-Salem’s 3-0 win over Carolina last night, a crowd of 6,963 fans filled BB&T Ballpark. It was the largest crowd of the season and the 12th-largest in BB&T Ballpark history. The atmosphere was tremendous, and the Dash used it to push their division lead to two-and-a-half games.

During the game, our twitter feed was going crazy with support from our fans. Here are some of those tweets from the last two games, both featuring tremendous crowds and important wins.
