The recent All-Star Game break meant too many days without basesball. To fill in the gap, I recently attended a game between the Double A affiliates of the Boston Red Sox (the Portland Sea Dogs) and Toronto Blue Jays (New Hampshire Fisher Cats). Despite the Fisher Cats first place status, the Sea Dogs won the game. (Go Sea Dogs!) Crazy antics abound between innings such as a seating section called the “Splash Zone” that received a blast of water from a hose every couple of innings. (No, I was not sitting in the Splash Zone. It may have been a welcome experience considering that the temperature that day was well into the 90’s and sunny.) Attend a minor league game for a great chance to see some players on their way up. In a pinch, get some baseball wherever you can get it.
