Spring is in the air and that means professional baseball.
Have you seen a baseball game? Have you been to a baseball game?
There’s nothing like it; the sound of the crowds, the crack of the bat, and all that great baseball food like peanuts, popcorn and nachos.
One of the best places to watch a baseball game is in the older stadiums. There are plenty of places for a mouse like me to watch the game. It’s also fun to watch all the people who come to the game in jerseys, hats and even face paint! Small crowds in these stadiums can get as big at 10,000. Big stadiums can hold 56,000 people. That’s bigger than some cities!
Some of my favorite stadiums to visit are Fenway Park in Boston, Wrigley Field in Chicago, and Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. Some of these stadiums are more than 100 years old! Fenway Park was built in 1912, Wrigley Field was built in 1914, and Dodger Stadium in 1962.
I love helping clean up after the game, too. When the game ends there are only a few people left to clean up, which means plenty of crumbs waiting for yours truly. So many peanuts and Cracker Jacks, it’s like mousey heaven.
I enjoy watching the games from April until the weather starts turning cooler again in October. By October the Major League World Series has started. This is a series of 7 games to see whose team is the best. When they play the stadiums are always packed. That means more food for me and my friends.
If you get the chance go to a baseball game this summer, I highly recommend it. They are fun at any age. You are part of a crowd, all yelling and shouting together when your team is winning or losing.
Just don’t forget to leave me a couple of peanuts so I can enjoy the game too.
