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!
AT&T Park – San Francisco, Ca
When visiting AT&T Park in San Francisco, be sure to take your tiny Giants fan to the Fan Lot for tricked out fun before the seventh inning stretch; just look for the hard-to-miss oversized Coca-Cola bottle neighboring a 26-foot high baseball glove, and you’ll know you’ve found it. The bottle houses four twisty-turvey superslides open to kiddos 14 and under, with views of the bay and the field that make the climb to the top totally worth the effort. Future major leaguers will also love Little Giants Park, home to batting cages and a base run that’ll have your Little dreaming about the future. You can check her time as she runs the bases, fine-tune her batting stance, and before you know it, she’ll be ready for the big leagues. After all that practice, there’s no better way to pump up your player than by snapping a pic in the photo booth and turning it into a personalized baseball card to trade.
All Star Play: You don’t necessarily need to be a ticket holder to take your little slugger on the Fan Lot attractions. On select non-game days, anyone can check them out!
