Last night I spent a delightful evening at McCormick Field watching the Asheville Tourists, they did lose the game (can’t win them all!), but I thoroughly enjoyed every minute and they really go all out to make it a fun experience.
I found the ticket prices almost ridiculously refreshing. I was in a box seat, front row A between third base & home plate for only $13.00!
The place is easy to maneuver, clean, quaint, very beautiful as baseball stadiums go, and offers a wide variety of foods, drinks, related apparel, and of course the traditional souvenirs.
They really make every effort to keep you entertained pretty much every minute, even between innings, each of which offers a fun contest with kids or adult-kids competing for prizes in cute games like bean bag toss, rocking horse races, base running challenges versus the Tourist’s Mascot, and many more.
The music was light hearted and fun, the announcer very entertaining, and occasional fun noises abound such as breaking glass when a foul ball goes near the announcers booth, followed “coincidentally” with a voice-advertisement for a local glass company, surprise, surprise.
Something I've never experienced at a ball game before: our section being box seats (What does that mean anyway? Nothing boxy about them.) We actually had a waitress with a menu!
Worthwhile experience, fun evening and I will definitely be back!
