Doubleheader with the AAA Norfolk Tides

POST #    1211

Saturday night, I took the chance to catch a Norfolk Tides game while I was in southern Virginia. Naturally, it was a great time. The Tides played a doubleheader with the Louisville Bats (I suppose they would be sued if they were the Sluggers). Unfortunately, the Mets called David Wright late last month, so I didn't get to see the phenom from five rows back.

This is my first "real" experience with minor league baseball, because for some reason, the Brooklyn Cyclones don't feel that minor league. Everything at Harbor Park seemed cheaper and had that small town, small team feel. While I initially thought the beers were the same cost as the bigs, it turned out that a 32 oz. beer was only $6.

There were also things like fried dough, pretzels that were warmed on a grill and then dipped in cheese, and fried twinkies. Much like the Mets, the Tides went on to split the games.
