A fun, American pastime! We only paid $12 per seat, which seems like a bargain these days. Watch out for the food prices, though. We spent more on food than admission. The ballpark is clean and well maintained.

There is a parking lot next to the stadium, that is a municipal lot. I parked across the street in a private lot, that cost me $5.00 as a donation to a cub scout troop.
