To fill the void between post-season and Opening Day I am going to start up a series of posts with my five favorite things about each ballpark. I will continue to post money saving tips as I find them, but this will be more of a ballpark appreciation thing. Hopefully it will give you a little baseball fix and inspire you to plan trips to a new ballpark or two next season.
Here’s where the fans come in. I’d like to make this series interactive, so I’m asking for your input on the ballparks you’ve visited or your home park you frequent regularly:
What is your favorite thing about visiting _______*?
*Insert ballpark name here
It can be an object like the candies that line the scoreboard at U.S. Cellular Field or a game day activity like tailgating outside of Kauffman Stadium. Maybe you like the hotdog race at Progessive Field, the Best Buy Photo Zones at Target Field, or the tiger merry-go-round at Comerica Park. Whatever floats your boat!
I’m going to call for AL Central ballparks first, so get at me via the comment section of this post, email at firstname.lastname@example.org, Twitter @alicia_barnhart, or my Facebook page: Ballparks on a Budget with your answers.
Please include your name, hometown, favorite team, and if you have a blog include that too so I can link to your page. Also feel free to pass this around to your friends- the more responses the merrier! I hope to get my first post out next Monday, so get me your responses ASAP!
