This was a first time visit for us to the ballpark and we went to a Sunday evening game. From our hotel on Shoreline Drive it was very easy to find and less than 2 miles distance. We arrived about 40 min. before game time and had already purchased our tickets online beforehand. There is pass only parking next to the field and general parking across the street for $5. There was no wait to get in but there are a lot of steps to walk up. So if you are not able to do steps there is an elevator to use. Once upstair, there of course is a Whataburger with a slightly different menu selection than usual (ie. Whataburger for $5.00 and fries and drink are extra). But you expect upped prices at this type of venue. There are also a few other places to get food and drink. The park was VERY CLEAN and we had no problem finding our seats; but they do have lots of people to ask assistance. The fold down, slatted seats were not particularly comfy but again this is the venue. The men’s bathroom was not very clean after the game. There was no one roaming vendors selling refreshments during the game except for one cotton candy person came by once around the 7th inning. The PA system was good as was the video screen. They had lots of audience type participation games the first five innings are so, as well as a raffle drawing. We were surprised though at the lack of enthusiasm from the audience during most of the game even though it was a close game with a nail biting finish. There also were plenty of available seats even though it was Father’s Day. We thought it would be more crowded. There is a small water park next door. The ballpark has a small knoll with a tiny pool area and these are located outside the center to right field fence area. Sections 114 to 124 were in the shade at game time and all behind the netting, dugouts and home base and do not have first three rows behind dugouts. Section 113 on and 125 on are open with rows beginning at 1. The visitor side, from about Section 122, is in the sun up until around 7:30 on the night games. On the home side part of Section 113 is in the sun early and the sections down from this are also in the sun. This field is very close to the bridge over the channel and it began slowly lighting up around 8:00 and by the end of the game was very colorful changing colors from hot pink, white, blue etc. After the game it was not a problem exiting the stadium and getting to the parking lot BUT we were not able to backtrack the same way we came as they had cones blocking the road. So we had to go in the opposite direction. Now not having GPS, and being from out of town, made this slightly challenging at dark. But after about 15 min. we had wound around to the expressway and were able to find our way back to the hotel. In the end it was a good game since our home team won! If you like baseball and want to see a nice field at a reasonable price then put this on your agenda.
