Monday, May 26, 2008Ball Park Review: Fifth Third Field (Dayton, OH)
Next in the series of ball park tours: Mikah and I took a mini trip up to Dayton recently to watch the Dayton Dragons play. The Dragons are the Reds Class Single A team. I don't really follow Single A baseball much, but if the game we were at is any indication of how good the team is...then they are terrible.
You can read my other reviews of my Ball Park tour here.
Apart from some completely wrong directions we got from the hotel, access was easy. There were plenty of parking lots surrounding the stadium and we paid $6 to park.
I got 2 hot dogs ($3.50) and Mikah got 1 pretzel ($3). The hot dogs tasted fine, though not as good as The Charleston River Dogs' hot dogs! As usual, the pretzel tasted like a pretzel.
Here you can see the view from the two different seats we sat in. We moved from the left field wall to behind home plate to get a different view.
Their Jumbotron was nothing special and at times difficult to read.
As with any minor league game (especially the lower minor leagues) there is plenty of entertainment between every half inning. Which I suppose is good, but after a while I kind of just want to watch a baseball game.
As I mentioned before, the Dragons were really bad. They lost that game 7-0. They had also lost the first game of the double header 11-3.
It was good to get up to a Dragon's game considering they are only 45 minutes away from my house and they are a Reds team. Sometime soon we want to go see a Louisville Bats game as well.
