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!
Kauffman Stadium – Kansas City, Mo
At the home of the 2015 World Series Champs, the Royals’ littlest fans are treated like kings and queens. At the Outfield Experience they can ride hand-carved horses on the carousel, aim for a hole-in-one on the baseball-themed mini golf course; and climb, slide and swing on the expansive playground. Li’l sluggers can also make big plays and fuel those major league dreams at Sluggerrr’s base run, batting challenge, and pitching mound for the cost of a mere token. Our suggestion? Take advantage of your seats while you can, because once your sidekick finds these extras, you may not find your way back!
All Star Play: Family FunDay Sundays are loaded with pre- and post-game perks your kiddo will love: face painters, DJ’s, balloon artists, and base runs are just a few of the winning extras at bat.
