I really miss watching major league baseball here in Tucson. In Cincinnati, it was right down the road. Here in Arizona the Diamondbacks are two hours away in Phoenix. Too far to drive for a team you're not ecstatic about.
We do have a Triple-A team here in Tucson though... And since we had a hook up on a discount we (My mom, her husband Dan and myself) went. It wasn't the full baseball game atmosphere - but close enough! There were peanuts, cotton candy, beer, hot-dogs, a mascot, an announcer and even couple balls hit over the fence.
The game we went to was at Hi Corbet field instead of Kino Stadium for a "Roll Back the Clock" night. There were some people dressed in disco gear and they played some old school music throughout the night. They even had some guitar guy play The National Anthem - he sucked.
We had great seats at the game and besides freezing (the temperature dropped from 73∘down to 64∘and it was very windy) and over priced food (a bottle of coke cost 4 bucks!) we had a lot of fun!
What's your favorite ballpark food item?
Pretzel? Hot-dog? Nachos? Peanuts? Something else?
I love getting a Lemon Chill, but if that isn't around I go for the nachos!
