Energy is so much fun for kids, even if they don't like baseball. The tickets are very reasonable & they have kid's eat free nights & free fireworks on Fri nights. For the real baseball fans, every seat is a great seat!

We are silver seniors who have been attending games since the park opened. It is an inexpensive way to spend an evening, enjoy some ballpark food and root on the Blueclaws. There is a lot of fan friendly entertainment and special deals for seniors. They even have a day when you can bring your dogs. The best part is we can be home in about 15 minutes when the game is over.

The park is fun for all ages! Just an all around fun and casual time. There isn't a bad seat in the house and at these prices you cannot go wrong!

With little kids more interested in watching a minor league ball game than playing in the bounce house/playground, you know you've found something special to do with the family. We were here with our college alumni group and the hospitality we received was unlike anything we've experienced anywhere else our college alumni group has been to. The park is close to where we live, VERY clean, easy and cheap parking, good food, and extremely friendly and helpful staff. There were a few staff members that made our experience just mazing by making us feel right at home. We got to go down on the field through the visiting team's dugout for a group photo for a view of the stands most people don't see. We felt like special guests! Although I didn't personally know the staff member who took care of our group, John, but he is also an alumnus of our alma mater and he did a fantastic job making sure everyone was taken care of. The stadium itself is just a very family friendly place where you can walk around the entire field while the players are practicing and playing. There are concessions even behind center field and the back corner of right field. Several local bands/musicians played for the crowds in various locations around the stadium. The picnic area our group had on the third base line deep in left field was perfect. We were well fed for the bbq time allotment with great food. Being in such a family friendly place made us feel comfortable letting the kids go to the play area and rest rooms together. Even the parking attendants smiled and welcomed us! Aside from all these wonderful attributes to this minor league ball park, it was great to watch a ball game with professional players who still play for the love of the game and not an oversized contract. One more thing, we stayed for the fire works after the game and all I can say is WOW. Such a great way to end a super evening with the family. Heck even the time we spent leaving the parking lot was good as the local police have determined a highly efficient way to allow the mass exodus of guests at the end of the games without drastically altering the normal area traffic. If you enjoy a fun night of minor league baseball, the Lakewood Blue Claws are a MUST.
