 College-Baseball

On July 15th we gathered for our weekly Twitter chat to talk about America’s favorite pastime- baseball. We covered minor league vs. major league, favorite stadium foods and baseball memories. Read on to see a roundup of the conversation.

WHAT’S THE BEST CITY FOR BASEBALL? WHY?

@PaulEisenberg Chicago. You’ve got your Sox, Cubs and Kane County Cougars 40mins from town in Geneva.

OUR LATEST VIDEOS

@allierose Love all those @RedSox fans. BUT – I have become a @Nationals fan. Not a bad seat in that stadium.

@passitpromo Atlanta because I grew up loving the Braves.

@ramblingstump Went to a Nashua Pride game where they were on a 17 game losing streak. They handed out paper bags @ gates.

@allierose Favor the I-95 corridor from DC to Boston. Seriously, there is some fierce fandom in baseball. @Redsox still my fave park.

@kymri I think Wrigley Field is the greatest baseball venue, so I have to go with Chicago!

@iDreamofJenn Gotta go with Boston & Fenway!

@dipaolamomma BOSTON! I’ve been to 10 parks and NOTHING beats the fans/history/vibe at Fenway. And I’m not a Red Sox fan!

@maryheston Baseball is great no matter where you are. Small Town minor league games can be a blast!


MINOR LEAGUE OR MAJOR LEAGUE? WHY?

@theharriedmom We went to our 1st minor league game @RcklandBoulders -going back this Sat & @Mets on Sunday

@dipaolamomma Either. It’s America’s pastime, no matter what the players are paid, right?

@AnujadeSilva Minor league is cheap for regular outings. Major is for special occasions!

@camjrcole I like both. Our minor league is very very active with kids, major league, well its professional.

@Mrs_Riot1 Either is fine. I love our local minor team though!

@maryheston Both! It’s family fun at minor leagues & it is fun seeing the Major stars in action too.


SHARE YOUR FAVE #BASEBALL MEMORY.

@JazzyTJan My Dad always coached baseball. I gave softball a try in high school (intramurals). Became most improved player.

@msmary1962 When I was in elementary school LONG time ago we went to the Braves Stadium and meet Chief Nakahoma and his son and got popcorn.

@mommytravels Baseball memory: going to the Baltimore Orioles, then immediately taking my husband to airport to deploy.

@kimorlando Best/worst bball memory – ball dropped on DD head at KY minor league game. Face was on jumbotron.

@allierose Teaching my son about baseball. He wants seats to see the scoreboard, read the stats & see the pitch MPH readings. So digital!

@Pure_Wander Never forget 1st time in Fenway – 1991, wearing my softball glove. <3 minors w kids, but at least ONE major game!

@RobynsWorld I loved going with parents & brother to see St. Louis Cardinals play as a kid. My dad taught me to keep score even.


BEST BALLPARK FOOD? WHERE?

@shebuyscars Greatest part about ballpark food? Calories don’t count when consumed at a game. Right?!?

@dipaolamomma Voodoo Donut HOT DOG?! That has to be amazing! I love their culinary alchemy!!

@AndreaGuthmann Had great time @MillerPark @VisitMilwaukee. Gorgeous & kid-friendly, quirky sausage race & WI cheese curds.

@Lovenflipflops I love the hot dogs & the nachos. I think i have an extra stomach going to a game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

@Pure_Wander Boston. Fenway. Sam Lager. That’s food right?


HOW DO YOU ENTERTAIN KIDS WHO AREN’T INTO THE GAME?

@blondefabulous Tampa Rays have a touch tank with real rays in the outfield. Kids love it!

@kymri Teach them to keep score and tally averages. Worked for me 🙂

@Cammi72 our minor league park has a playground and kids bouncy house area.

@JazzyTJan Start a I spy game with them. That should be fun.

@purplepassion12 Usually there are activities for the kids as well, like meeting the mascot, batting cage, & getting them involved with the music


HOW CAN MLB MAKE GAMES MORE FAMILY FRIENDLY?

@tibstravel Minor league Montgomery Biscuits fun stadium on family-friendly river park right downtown.

@CantonCathy Love to be able to take our own snacks and even some in / out privileges. Family Meal deal would be great.

@Lovenflipflops The Orioles do a lot of meet and greets. Cal Ripken – I was elated when I was younger to meet him!

@leighmcaldwell Lower prices, fun mascots, access to players, kids on the field — all things we get at our local minor league ballpark.

@kimorlando The minor league Louisville Bats have a lot of family friendly activities, play area, kid’s meals, lower prices. Fun.

@dipaolamomma Having more in-park activities beyond the game, opportunities for interaction w/the players, & kid-priced tickets!

@PaulEisenberg Family restrooms in **every** MLB park, option of nut-free seating, and a photog taking snaps u can buy of you and your kids.
