Play Ball

Sunday night we went to a Shorebirds baseball game in Salisbury, MD. The Shorebirds are a minor league baseball team who seem to have a fairly large, local fan club. Dave and Dylan have attended one other game when Dylan got free tickets for a reading challenge at his school, but I had never been. I am not a huge baseball fanatic although I do remember many summer nights sitting at home with my family in front of the TV, eating popcorn, and sundaes while watching the Baltimore Orioles lose play. My family also went to some weekend games at Memorial stadium when I was young and I always enjoyed cheering and hoping a foul ball would come my way.

Dave's work actually purchased a group of tickets so many of his co-workers were there too including Zoe's friend Abigail, which kept her busy at least for an inning or two. The stadium is also kid friendly in that it has a carousel and a couple bouncy things to keep them busy. Never mind they cost additional monies...who wouldn't pay an extra $1 or $5 to keep their kids quiet and occupied so they can catch some of the action!


Of course the night was also filled with all the best things...like hot dogs, peanuts, pretzels with mustard, cotton candy, and ice cream sundaes in helmets! Yumm!!

All in all it was a great family night and another summer memory made!


The ballpark!


The kiddie area of the stadium.


Yes, there is a chicken mascot. What would you expect at Perdue Stadium?



Gotta have cotton candy at the stadium!!

  4. I love going to the minor league games -- they're much more fun then major league! We usually head over to Camden to see the Riversharks.
