Last week, my dad and a couple of his friends organized an annual get-together where they go to a baseball game. This time, they chose to go to a minor league game about an hour and a half away (the Lansing Lugnuts). They invited me as well as the son of one of the other guys, so it ended up being the five of us.
In all my years, I have never been to a minor league game before. And, I have to admit it was pretty cool.
We went on a Monday night so it was pretty lightly attended. There was maybe 1,000 people in attendance. Our tickets were in the front row along the first base line. The field was pretty close to the seats so we had to be pretty watchful for foul balls (and the two teams seemed to hit a lot that night).
That was pretty light attendance, though the other guy around my age, who lives in the city, said that Thursday nights are pretty popular, because they have $2 beers.
Which leads me to my other point. It can be pretty cheap.
