After driving non-stop to Southaven, MS yesterday to catch the Colorado Eagles get their asses handed to them, I thought I deserved to lollygag a little. If there is any reason to have an iPhone, it’s for the maps. A quick search around Little Rock told me what I was doing for the evening.
Occasionally, I like to take in a minor league baseball game. The parks are fun, the games are decent, the crowds are fun, and the price is right (just check out my $8 seat).
The Arkansas Travelers have a nice following, and a park the style of which people love to complain about these days (the manufactured nostalga). Still, it has comfy seats, good basic food choices, and cheap beer.
They are announcing the starting lineups, and it’s startling to hear the mellow crowd, after the screaming and yelling in hockey.
Let’s go, Travellers.
