7 Reasons to Attend Minor League Baseball

The love of baseball is real and here is why Minor Leagues are still pretty great.

7 Reasons to Attend Minor League Baseball

I am sure that most people have been to a minor league baseball game at some point in their life. If not, well I can tell you for sure that you are missing out on a great time. There is just something different between major league games and minor league games.

Obviously there will be a clear difference in ability but i mean if you really look a little deeper you will see something about them that you don't really get in the major leagues. Here are seven reasons that you should attend a minor league game at least once or twice in your life.

1. The stadiums aren't as big

First off, sometimes getting to walk in to giant stadiums is a great feeling. Other times though it isn't so great. Having to walk up all the steps to your seat can be a little annoying. Another thing is the fact that your seat can be so far from the field that its hard to pay attention to the game. Finally who wants to sit in the nose bleed section just to cheer on a baseball team, unless you are super dedicated that is. Little league stadiums are much smaller and you actually see what you are watching.

2. The teams seem a little more laid back

One thing I have always noticed when go to a major league game is that the teams seem a little tense. They seem like they are there for work and not to do what they love. This is much different in the minor leagues. They seem to have a little more fun yet they try just as hard as the major leaguers do. It is almost noticeable how they have a little more fun.

3. The Fans are more into the game

This one I understand is kind of disputable. Yet in my eyes it seems like the fans are a little more involved. From the on field games to the cheers in the stands every fan is cheering. The atmosphere is different and it feels happier.

4. You actually get to sit close to the plate for way cheaper

This one I know from personal experience. The other day I attended a minor league game and for just nine dollars I sat five rows behind home plate. Some people may be able to get discounts on tickets but i know that at most major league games you would pay thirty dollars and above to have that same experience.

5. The feeling that it gives you

Like I said the atmosphere of a minor league game is different. It gives that hometown feeling that just makes you feel good. It's unmistakeable that you instantly know you are going to have a great night right when you enter the stadium. The love of baseball is true no matter what league you watch but it is definitely aplified in the minor leagues.

6. The food prices

This one is definitely true. For a good meal at a major league stadium you are looking a bill in the range of 15 to 20 dollars. Yet at a minor league stadium you can get an amazing meal for less than ten dollars. I don't really understand why the prices can be that much of a difference but it sure feels a lot better at a minor league stadium.

7. The team logos are pretty cool

Finally the logos. I know that sometimes a major league logo can actually be pretty cool. Yet more often than not this is not the case. Minor league logos on the other hand can be pretty cool. It might seem kind of childish but sometimes i base how much I like a team on their logo. I understand that some people don't understand how I logo can sway your opinion but I can assure for some people it does.

These are only a few reason in my opinion to attend a minor league baseball game at least once or twice in your life. Take it as you will but for me I love minor league games. Whether its minor league or major league though it is easy to say baseball is a great sport. Like the age old song goes "Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks, I don't care if I never get back."
