A hot day at the Rascals ballpark (June 29, July 20 and 27

June 23, 2009

We saw the River City Rascals play today — yes, it was scorching! But we had a blast because the park had only 1,700 or so fans (and about 1,000 of them were children on summer camp field trips) so we could ditch our excellent seats near home plate for some further back in the shade. We took full advantage of the impromptu water activities in the kids’ zone, and I can attest that SnowCaps Hawaiian shaved ice is the best in the area. It’s too bad the only locations are in the T.R. Hughes Ballpark and in Cottleville.

I didn’t realize it in advance of our outing, but for two Mondays in June and July, the Rascals and McDonald’s are offering $5 tickets. Yesterday was one (sorry for the late notice!); others are June 29, July 20 and July 27. The lawn seats are always $5 preordered, true, but this offer also applies to club, infield and most bleacher seats.

Minor league games are a treat.  The mascots are always out, the giveaways are rampant, and there’s a good chance you’ll be sitting next to one of the player’s mom and dad. By the end of the game, you’ll feel like long-lost friends, even if they’re cheering for the other team.
