Nothing quite lives up to the time honored tradition of taking in a baseball game. After all, there is a reason it is referred to as America's Pastime. From the smell of the freshly cut grass to the National Anthem bellowing through the stands and the crack of the bat as a hitter connects with a pitch, to the sight of a ball flying over the outfield wall and the taste of a fresh hot dogs or Cracker Jacks, attending a baseball game is a a sensory experience like no other and the memories it produces will last a lifetime. The ultimate family day or night out, a baseball game is the perfect bonding experience whether seeing the game with family, friends, or co-workers. As the innings and pitches pile up everyone in attendance can feel the intensity pick up as every pitch, run, and base runner, begin to matter more and more. By the time the seventh inning stretch rolls around a break from the action is welcome just to settle the nerves and enjoy a traditional song before getting right back to all the excitement for the final two and a half innings. As you file out of the stadium after the last out you likely will already be wanting to start making plans for your next visit to the ballpark.
