Hickory Crawdads / L.P. Frans Stadium
Ranked #1 of 35 things to do in Hickory
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 8, 2013

i went to see a game in Hickory on Saturday 6 July and noticed they had a $1 discount for military personnel. i showed my id and they said the military is free and gave me a box seat on the 3rd base side and thanked me for my service. i have had this happen one other time in Lakeland Fl but it was for a special night. to do this every night is awesome and a big thank you to the crawdads for being a class act.

as for the stadium itself, it was a good place to watch the game. the concessions had the usual food but did have chick fil a sandwiches which were hot. they have a special place to eat down the first baseline but i didnt check that out. the stadium also has a small roof portion which helps with the sun and the pouring rain and lighting which happened at my game.

the only negative i had about the stadium is you have to look through the net from virtually every seat in the stadium. i don't like to sit behind the net but understand for safety reasons they have them when most people are not paying as much attention to the game as they do their kids and their phone.

The chicken fingers are wonderful! For ballpark food, they have great food at good prices! And the employees are really nice and friendly!

My Husband and visited for the first time, and we loved it.
There's a carousel for the kids, and other kids games.
They offer a quick comedy entertainment between innings.
We also were pleased with the prices our seats were $8 and we sat 5 rows away from the Field.
Food can get pricey, like they offer a Chick-fil-A sandwich for $6. But they also offer Tasty Hotdogs for $3, small hamburgers are $4. There's also Popcorn, peanuts, and French fries. Dominos sells small Pizzas for $4, and beverages are Pepsi products either in a 16oz bottle, or fountain drink in a cup with ice.And they also serve Beer, but I'm not sure what the prices are for those.
The game is upbeat, and relaxing. And a great way to get out of the house.
We will definitely go again soon.

Want to see a baseball game with all the fun of hot dogs, a mascot and hometime spirit? Come watch the Crawdads play. Remember, Madison Bumgarner started here, and we got to watch him develop into the professional he is today. There is always something extra provided, and this is the perfect way to spend your evening.

Cute little park with fun family atmosphere. The people are friendly and between innings there were fan activities. What a great way to spend an afternoon with the family!
