I don't get out to Frontier Field as often as I should, normally when people come in from out of town and bring up doing so. Last night was one of those occasions.
bought tickets in advance at the box office, as we had seven in our group and I wanted to sit in block rather than stretched out over a row, and the website will only give you a row. Walked up, said I wanted a 3/4 block, gentleman behind the glass knew exactly what I was looking for and patiently worked with me from there. We wound up about 8 rows back of first base, excellent seats, and $11 each. This is an affordable luxury.
Lots of parking nearby, $6, reasonable. Stadium is easy and safe to walk to from parking.
Concessions are plentiful and a great bargain. Most in our group wound up with roast beef sandwiches they loved, and were surprised at the reasonableness of the meal pricing ($8). My wife wound up getting a chicken french sandwich ($6), I stayed with beer and peanuts. Plenty of choices for everyone, and concessions were open until the top of the 8th inning.
The crowd was enthusiastic enough during a what turned out to be a 3-1 game, with all runs manufactured. Full of your typical minor league promos, one of the kids caught a frisbee that made her night, and after the game I caught the attention of a trainer/player/someone hanging out in front of the dugout, and he graciously tossed the ball he had to the other kid in our group. Our out of town guests are on the tail end of a long road trip through the northeast, and their dad said in no uncertain terms the kids (7 & 10) had the best night of their trip to date.
As an added bonus, we didn't know beforehand, but there were post game fireworks that capped up an outstanding summer evening for everyone.
The only down sides I'll give it are the piped in music can be a little loud and annoying, and the stadium has no real roof to speak of (this was a major bone of contention during the construction many years ago), so the light, one inning rain we got had many scrambling to go under the stands.
Overall, this is an outstanding value for a group outing, or just a couple. You can go knowing you won't be gouged and will enjoy a quality experience.
