“Everything minor league baseball should be”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Attended opening night in 2014 on a very cold night. The game had all the trappings of a great minor league experience—I parked for free, the food was cheap, there were fun activities between innings, and I got a selfie with the team’s mascot, Snappy D. Turtle. The Beloit Snappers represent what’s good about minor league baseball. In spite of the cold and the sparse crowd, it was clear that the team is a significant part of the community—not just from the many ads and sponsorships from local businesses, but from the fans. While getting a hot dog and soda at the concession stand (for a total of $5.50), I spoke at length with a woman whose family had hosted more than 40 players. She spoke of the players who had made the Majors with motherly pride.

Totally enjoyed this experience, and would love to go back when it's warmer!

Good, small ballpark with great bratwurst! Stopped there on July 3rd and sang "God Bless America" at the 7th inning stretch and stayed for fireworks show!

“There is nothing quite like Minor League Baseball”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

I actually came to town to see the Snappers because they are the A's new low A affiliate and I was going to Milwaukee to see the A's play the Brewers. Where else can you see first round draft picks and sit right behind the plate for $8.
