The Mirabito Outdoor Classic will be the first American Hockey League game played outdoors. As such, it honors the heritage of the sport played by children on frozen lakes and ponds throughout the Northeast, and offers ticket-holders an experience they will never forget. Outdoor games are a proven success at the collegiate and National Hockey League level - the NHL's Winter Classic now an annual New Year's Day event - and the Fairgrounds is proud to help the Syracuse Crunch spread that tradition to the AHL.
