Nothing gets my blood pumping quite like the excitement of a baseball game. I especially enjoy watching the Richmond RiverRats play. It’s very convenient to have a baseball team in my own town! I love being able to just get in my car and go to the historic McBride Stadium. The stadium, which opened in 1936, is a small, yet intimate setting. Once there, I grab my hot dog and some peanuts, find my seat, get settled for a fun-filled evening.
I’m not a baseball expert by any means; I don’t know all of the baseball lingo. However, that doesn’t stop me from getting into the game! By the start of the second inning, I’m yelling at the umpires and cheering on my favorite players!
This is a favorite outing for my family. It is a low-expense way to spend time together and doesn’t require a lot of planning. I’m sure it would be a favorite for your family as well!
A regular reserved seat is $5; but, you can upgrade to a box seat for just $7! I personally prefer the box seats, that way I can see the game up close! If you’re budget conscious, then enjoy $2 Tuesdays, where seats are reduced by $2! Check out their schedule at richmondriverrats.com!
Whether you’re a baseball junkie who knows it all or you just know the basics, you’re sure to love watching our RiverRats!
