Catch a Rising Star
Household names like Gerrit Cole, Gregory Polanco and Starling Marte were all Bradenton Marauders not long ago. The guys you see up close this summer could be on ESPN next year.
With minor-league ticket prices, you can take the whole family to the game and sit where you like. Plus, the 360-degree LECOM boardwalk lets you watch from every angle.
Camp out at the seats along the first-base line to flag down players as they walk between the dugout and the clubhouse. If you catch a foul ball or—even better—a home run, there’s a decent chance the hitter will sign it for you.
Pick a Theme Night
Game promos include GEEKEND (July 21 and 22) with Super Villain Night followed by Star Wars Night. You can even bring your dog July 29 for “Pups Run the Bases” after the game.
“I had to take out a second mortgage for this beer.” Expensive concessions are a go-to joke for the major league set, but Thursday-night Marauders games offer $1 drafts and other great deals.
Enjoy Cool Summer Nights
Nighttime baseball is one of the best excuses to be outside during summertime in Southwest Florida. Kick back in the cooling evening air and watch the game under a spectacular sunset.
