Major League Baseball is almost back for the 2022 season. Fans and I are excited for the first day of baseball to be back. It is great to know that the 99 day lockout is over and we can just enjoy the season. The first day of baseball begins on April 7th, so it is just around the corner. It is just 12 days away.
A few games that are scheduled for that day are:
White Sox at Royals
Mets at Nationals
Brewers at Cubs
There are other games scheduled for the 7th, but if a team does not play then they will begin the next day on the 8th.
I am excited to keep up with how the Brewers preform this year, because last year was such a great season for them. It will be interesting to see how the first series goes against the Cubs. Hopefully they can start off strong and win the series to start the season. I can not wait until I get to go back and watch Baseball at the stadium. I am planning on going to a Brewer game sometime soon. I was looking at ticket prices and they are cheaper than I expected them to be. This will be good if they stay this affordable so I can go to a lot of games this season. I would also like to possibly go to another ballpark other than American Family Field this summer. Maybe I will get down to Wrigley Field and watch a Cubs game.
I have been to many different Major League Ballparks. I would have to say that my favorite one was the Miami Marlins stadium. I like how spacious it was and the view of downtown Miami is very beautiful. The weather was really nice the day I went to the stadium so it was enjoyable to go up to the top of the stadium and look at the view. They also have a roof so when it gets unbearably hot they can close it, and everyone can be at a comfortable temperature in the stadium. The Milwaukee Brewers also have a closing roof in their stadium, but that is mostly because of how cold it gets there. It is really nice to know that I will not be freezing or super hot when I am watching a baseball game. That is one reason I like the American Family Field where the Milwaukee Brewers currently play at.
Below I put together a list of some of the top MLB ballparks.
San Fransisco Giants
I have been to Oracle Park where the San Fransisco Giants play. I actually went there for one of the games for the World Series back in 2014. It is such a pretty stadium with a great backdrop of the Ocean. If the weather is not to cold it is truly a great experience.
Even if you are not a Chicago Cubs fan you should definitely go check it out. It is a great experience filled with many different baseball traditions. This stadium is the second to oldest MLB stadium which gives it a unique architecture.
Kansas City Royals
I have been to Kauffman Stadium a few different times. They have pretty fountains located in the outfield and a big score screen with a crown on top. The lights in the stadium make it a great time when it is a night game.
MLB fans and I were so excited to hear the news that the MLB lockout is now over. This past Wednesday there was an agreement to end the lockout. There will be a 2022 MLB season! I was starting to get worried that there would be no baseball this year, because it was not looking too good with the lockout situation. Now that the season is back on I will definitely be going to a few games this season as well as watching them on the TV.
A little background on my interest in baseball is that I never used to be a Milwaukee Brewers baseball fan until I moved to the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area around six years ago. I have been a Kansas City Royals fan for many years now, but I have started to grow into a Brewers fan the longer I have lived here. I am planning on going to a few Milwaukee Brewers game this summer as well as in the fall. I went to a handful of games last season and it was an amazing time. I love getting to go to these games with my family and friends while being able to watch a great game of baseball.
It is great to know that the MLB season is back on and this has made many fans and I excited for the 2022 season to begin. Spring training is set to start back up around the middle of March, and on April 7th the season is supposed to officially start. Fans be ready, baseball is back!
One of my favorite things about going to a baseball game is the food. Whether it be the ice cold soda, nachos, or hotdogs I always leave full. I have been to a variety of MLB stadiums and i have tried many different foods. One thing that I wish is that it would not be so expensive to eat. Last year, when I went to a few games I would easily spend around twenty to thirty dollars just on food. If it was a little more affordable to eat at the ballpark that would be nice. Even drinks are so expensive! It is like five dollars for a fountain drink and around ten for a beer. Crazy!
I found a list of a few of the fan favorite ballparks just for their food! Here are the top three.
Look at those delicious fries!
2. Minnesota Twins
Bloody Marys! With Hamburger sliders? Wow!
3. New York Mets
Not just your plain old ice cream. Ice cream in a tasty glove!
I have been to both the Seattle Mariners and Minnesota Twins ballparks. From what I remember is that the food was nothing short of amazing. I loved getting to try all the different foods while watching the baseball game. It honestly is one of my favorite things to do in the summer. I cannot wait to try more ballparks food in the future. I would say that out of all professional sports, baseball has the best food options. They usually have regular stadium food and also restaurants throughout the stadium making it easy for someone to find something they like.
