5 Bucket List Activities for Baseball Fans

February 01, 2017

There are some baseball experiences every passionate fan should enjoy at least once in their lives, which will allow them to celebrate its rich sporting history. Check out the five biggest bucket list activities for baseball fans below.

  • 1.  Catch a Game at Fenway Park
  • You don’t need to be a fan of the Boston Red Sox to want to visit Fenway Park. After all, it is the oldest park in Major League Baseball, as it opened more than one-hundred years ago in 1912. It has also retained its historic charm, which more modern ballparks will struggle to compete with, which is why it is a must-visit stadium for baseball fans who want to experience a little bit of baseball history. Visit ticketsales.com for upcoming games at Fenway Park. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience.

  • 2.  Visit Monument Park in New York
  • Many of the greatest baseball players in history adorned the famous pinstripes of the New York Yankees. Regardless of your favorite team, Monument Park in the Bronx will allow you to learn more about baseball’s greatest players, such as Babe Ruth and Yogi Berra. It’s certainly worth a visit when catching a game at the new Yankee Stadium.

    3. Explore the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum
    African-Americans were banned from playing professional baseball alongside white people during the early 20th century. Not to be deterred from their love of the sport, they created both their own leagues and teams across America. The leagues enjoyed great success throughout the 1920s all the way to the early 1960s and featured many of the world’s most famous baseball players, such as the legendary Jackie Robinson, Satchel Paige and Willie Mays. Learn more about the leagues by exploring the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, Missouri, which will allow you to understand more about the history of African American baseball through hundreds of photographs and interactive exhibits.

  • 4.  Step Inside the Baseball Hall of Fame
  • Legends of the sport are honored inside the Baseball Hall of Fame, which is in Cooperstown, New York. Here you can view staple items from baseball’s history, such as the earliest known baseball jersey, CY Young’s ball during his 500th win, and Babe Ruth’s bat from his 60th home run. Of course, the best time to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame is during the annual induction ceremony, which introduces players to honor to their achievements and contribution to the sport.

  • 5.  Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory
  • Ever wondered how baseball bats are made? Well, wonder no more, as you can visit Kentucky’s Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory. You won’t be able to miss it, either, as the world’s biggest bat leans firmly against the side of the building. The inside is just as interesting, too, as you can take a tour of the factory to learn how baseball bats are crafted before viewing bats used by Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio and more.

    American Needle Fitted Hats

    If you do not know your size, first determine where on your head you want to wear your hat. Usually it is worn about a half-inch to an inch above the eyebrows and/or just above the ears. Have a friend hold the tape measure (cloth, plastic, or download a printable version here) at the point where you want the hat to rest on your head.  Insert the tip of your little finger between the tape and your head.  Record the measurement and find your Fitted Hat size using the chart below.  This should provide you with a comfortable fit.

    Apparel Sizing Tips:

    Use these tips as a general guide when finding your measurements:

    Chest/Bust: With your arms at your sides, measure around the fullest part of your chest, across shoulder blades and under arms.

    Waist: To measure your natural waistline, wrap the tape so it intersects your navel. Keep tape flat, but comfortably loose.

    Hips: Stand with your heels together and measure the fullest part of your hips. Make sure the measuring tape is level all the way around your body.

    Inseam: Stand up straight, and start the tape measure high in your crotch. Straighten the tape down the inside of your leg to the bottom of your ankle.
