Bats Open House 2018

Louisville Slugger Field-Louisville, KY:  The Minor League season is almost upon us, and to kick things off here in the ‘Ville, the Bats invited their season ticket holders to a little open house to pick up their tickets and view the ballpark.  We picked up our ticket package, then secured some seats to some special games like Jurassic Park Night and the throwback weekend when they’ll play as the Louisville Colonels.  The team then treated us to a free meal of a hot dog, popcorn, and drink, some traditional ballpark eats.

Brian looks game ready! Go Bats!

Brian was then excited to go check out the Bats’ locker room and clubhouse. He liked to pretend he was getting ready for a game, and who knows, he could be a future Bat!  We were also lucky enough to run into Buddy Bat, and then went to check out the dugout.

We ended the day up hanging out in some of the suites and getting some good eats.  I play the Powerball every week, and the first thing I will do after finally winning is rent of these for life!  All of my friends will be welcome to come enjoy the games with us.  Brian really liked the suites, and decided this is the life for him!  He also enjoyed seeing the press box and talking with some of the Louisville staff.  It’s just fun to see every inch of this ballpark.

This was a fun day for us, and it really got me excited for the Bats’ season to start.  We’ll actually be up in Michigan in early April, so here’s hoping the weather is decent and we can catch a game or two up that way.  I’ll leave off with a video of Brian leading you onto the field:

Bats Open House

Louisville Slugger Field-Louisville, KY:  Sunday the Louisville Bats held an Open House for their season ticket holders and guests.   It was a chance for us to get away to the ballpark, and enjoy a nice day that was just chill.  After I picked up my ticket package envelope, we headed to the concession stand to get our free hotdog, popcorn, and pop.  And what better place to enjoy these treats than our reserved seats?  This will be my view for every Sunday game this season:

After we finished up our lunch, we went into the bowels of Louisville Slugger Field to check out the Bats locker room and clubhouse.  Both were modest, but they looked like nice facilities for sure.

Putting on my ‘game face’

When we were done poking around the locker room area, we followed the hallway that lead to the Bats’ dugout.  There is something just relaxing about sitting in a dugout for me, it just feels like home somehow.  Brings back some good memories of Little League and high school, I guess.

After our rest in the dugout, we took a lap around the outfield.  It’s always nice to be on the field, too…  We ended our excursion by heading up to check out one of the suites looking over the ballpark.  All I can saw is, I’ve seen the suite life, and it is good.  If or when I win the Powerball, I now know my first purchase will be to secure one of these suites for my friends, family, and I to enjoy the games.  We were able to sample some food up there, also, and it was awesome!  Oh, well, I can dream, anyway…  We have plans to be back here when the Cincinnati Reds visit town for an exhibition. Please help me pray for good weather!
