A sure sign that spring has arrived is the start of baseball season. Taking in a game is a memorable family-friendly outing that can be fun for all ages. If you’re looking for an easy option to find top caliber athletic play in a stadium that gives fans up-close viewing and helps you stick to your budget, check out the Tacoma Rainiers at Cheney Stadium.
The Tacoma Rainiers, the Triple-A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners, have a veteran-heavy roster and three of the Mariners Top 25 prospects, as ranked by Baseball America. These up-and-coming stars are sure to show off major league talent to impress even the most dedicated baseball fans.
You’ll get extra bang for your buck by attending a game on a promotional night. Every Friday home game, and the July 3rd game, ends with a spectacular fireworks show. Saturday and Sunday games give kids a chance to run the bases like a pro. Other game nights highlight foster families, the armed forces, first responders, your favorite Washington college, and more!
Several new concessions stands will tempt your taste buds beyond the standard park fare of hot dogs, popcorn, and candy. Hibachi-style rice bowls, a rotating menu of bratwurst, and fried breaded cauliflower are a few of the more sophisticated offerings. If it’s easier to feed the family before you get to the park, some games offer a ticket and meal package in partnership with Chick-fil-A or Little Caesars Pizza.
A few other helpful tips to get the most out of your family’s game day:
- If you have little ones who have a hard time sitting for long periods, take them to the playground or grassy berm area to run around. Both areas let you keep one eye on your child and one on the game.
- Outside food and drink aren’t allowed in the stadium, except water, which must be in a sealed clear plastic bottle.
- Gates open 60-90 minutes early to watch warm ups and maybe score an autograph from a player or photo with team mascot, Rhubarb The Reindeer!
