Going to a baseball game is lots of fun, but can you do it with kids? Of course! Especially if it is at Chase Stadium!
Tickets range from $8 for the nosebleeds and up to over $100. Kids can usually score a free ticket by participating in the Summer Reading Program at the local libraries in the area.
Chase stadium is unique because it features 2 indoor playgrounds for your little kids to burn off some energy! There is a toddler area and an area for taller children (they are not right next to each other, so take another adult with you in case you need to split up). You may need to wait in line for the bigger playground (they often have a time limit that each group can play for, so everyone gets a turn - unless you go on a school night, then you may get to play for the whole game). Take your camera to get some cute pictures!
There is also an area for older children that features a batting cage and wiffle ball batting practice. You may also watch the organist that plays for the Diamondbacks around the playground area. Very fun during the 7th inning stretch!
There are family restrooms available that have changing tables and chairs for nursing mothers. Always clean and very nice!
My best advice for going with your kids is to plan on spending some time playing in the playground and some time watching the game. Kids don't usually want to sit through a whole game, so plan accordingly. Food there is decent, though a little pricey. The kids meals are actually fairly cheap for a ballpark. We often get our kids a snowcone because it takes several innings to eat it because it is so large!
Outside food can be brought in a clear grocery type sack. Bottled water can be brought in if it is sealed (highly recommend doing this - water is expensive at the ballpark). Formula and babyfood are also ok (no glass containers) . Check the website if you need specific details.
Parking is available all over the surrounding area. If you head East of the stadium several blocks you may be able to park on a side street for free. Otherwise, just find somewhere close and play the $5-10 and you'll have less walking (don't take your stroller, there's no where to really put it once inside).
Go with your kids and plan to keep it simple and you'll have fun!
