Forget the pros. You wanna have the same fun as going to a major league baseball game at a tenth of the price? Then look up your local minor league baseball team and visit them. Take in a game. For about ten bucks you get a seat with your feet on the dugout.
Saturday night, my dad and I traveled out to the ugly, yet quaint city of Lake Elsinore where they have, as surprising as it seems, a remarkable baseball field called the lake Elsinore Diamond, home of the Lake Elsinore Storm, the advanced single A affiliate of the San Diego Padres. By the way, they have the best logo in all of sports...
We watched them defeat the High Desert Mavericks (advanced single A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, what's up Wes - ) by the score of 2-0. It was an exciting pitcher's duel that was over in just about 2 hours.
Now I'm no stranger to minor league baseball, being only ten minutes away from Arrowhead Credit union Park, home of the Inland Empire 66ers (Seattle Mariners). But what makes Storm baseball more enjoyable is the fact that it is not in downtown San Ber-doo. I strongly recommend minor league baseball because it's fun for the entire family, and it's not expensive.
