Many people I speak to regarding the blog have commented that you can’t save money and still go out and have a good time. I don’t totally disagree with them. Every time I take my wife and son out for the day, we end up spending money on something. We go to amusement parks or for a day in the city. Even if we just go to the beach, I can end up spending more than I want to. Dinner and drinks can add up quickly if you don’t order carefully or if you go to an expensive restaurant.
Well, my brother introduced me to cost effective way to go out and have a great time. Every city across America has some type of minor league baseball team. Not only a team but a stadium too! Here on the Jersey Shore, we have the Lakewood Blue Claws, Philadelphia Phillies AAA Team. The most expensive tickets to the stadium are just $8.00 for adults. Even more, the concessions are cheaper too!! The best part of the whole experience is that you can get tickets last minute if you just want to run over to the stadium and the games are great. These kids really love the game and play each game for the love of the game and for the fans.
I must admit, I am a pretty serious sports fan and I love to go to live games but the cost of tickets, beer, parking and every thing else that goes into attending a live game have made the experience unenjoyable. Now, I can watch great baseball for a fraction of the cost.
