Her first fan jersey was a onesie, and she’s been playing catch with her oversized mitt since she started walking. Now you’re ready to take your little slugger out to the ball game, take her out with the crowds. Besides the peanuts and Cracker Jacks, stadiums have tons to offer their littlest fans. From Ferris wheels and mini golf, to coaching clinics and hands-on skills zones, we’ve loaded the bases with major league stadiums that’ve hit a grand slam when it comes to family perks. Flip through to see if your home team made the list!
Citi Field – Queens, Ny
When the wiggles set in during a Mets game, you can take your tiny fan to the Good Humor Fan Fest behind center field; the video game kiosks, and batting cages have obvious kid-appeal. It’s the dunk tank, though, where Mets’ fans dunk “fans” from the opposing team, that’ll get the entire family giggling. In the center of it all is Mr. Met’s Kiddie Field, where mini athletes can take a turn at bat, and run the bases on a pint-sized replica of the real deal. Plus, this season, look for new additions to Family Sundays: bounce houses, face painters, balloon artists, and more. Top it off with a Mr. and Mrs. Met signing session, and you’ve made the family triple play the weekend needed!
All Star Play: Mr. Met’s Kids Kitchen serves up smaller portions of hot dogs, popcorn and other ballparks faves for smaller fans. The best part? The prices are smaller too!
