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!
