I feel the need to catch at least one professional baseball game a year with the family. It now costs ~$334.78 to take a family of four to a game at Fenway. It will cost you 40 bucks just to park your car. I recently took the family out to a Lowell Spinners game and for 35 bucks got a family of 4 parked and in the stadium. We sat 15 rows behind the plate and I think I only spent another 20 on food and drink! For families with younger kids it provides an incredible value and entertainment the big leagues simply can’t match, including entertainment between innings, a kids play area & a run around the bases after the game ends. The minor league seasons are winding down, but I recommend you check out the spinners or 2 other local options. I stand behind this as a must do for North Shore residents at least once during the summer! Here are some pics that show how much fun can be had and what a great park they have there.
I really believe there should be a better located North Shore minor league team and Gloucester would be a great spot. If I had sneaker company billions, I would really try to bring my own team to Gtown. There are 2 more options for some local Baseball fun.
North Shore Navigators – I am going to check this out next year in Lynn. A lot of folks have visited and given the thumbs up.
Essex Baseball Club – This is where a bunch of sweaty guys put on old school baseball uniforms and play on a “Field of Dreams” setting – Spencer Pierce Little Farm in Newbury. The best feature is the Ipswich Ale truck is there offering brews for spectators and players. You can even try the game out for yourself. Here is a shot my cousin took and he swears by it as a must do on the North shore list of things to do.
