Watch Up and Comers
Many great baseball players start out in the Minor League. When you take in a game, it’s possible that you may be watching a future MLB Hall of Famer. These games are just as exciting as Major League games, so if you and the family are avid baseball fans, this is a great opportunity for you to have some fun together while doing what you love. Plus, these players are so eager to make a name for themselves, so you should be able to snag some autographs easily once the game is over.
Eat Tasty Food
All the Minor League Baseball stadiums are filled with concession stands that offer great game-day food and drinks. Take your pick from standard hot dogs, or enjoy something unique, such as a walking taco. Not only will you be able to fill up on snacks that you enjoy, but you’ll also be able to do without spending a fortune.
