Our family loves baseball… and the beach. A trip to Pensacola to see the Blue Wahoos is a way to enjoy the best of both worlds!

I hope a trip to Pensacola is on your radar. It’s such a fantastic place to find white sand beaches, plus historic sites and museums. Plus there is kayaking, snorkeling, camping and tons of outdoor fun.

Aaaand… did you know they have a great minor league team?? I highly recommend adding this to your itinerary! Here’s why we love minor league games with the family:

Affordability! Minor league games are typically much more affordable than major league games. Blue Wahoo tickets start as low as $12. Concessions, and parking are usually priced lower, making it easier to enjoy the game without breaking the bank. This affordability also often extends to merchandise and special promotions.

Family-Friendly Factor Minor league stadiums are known for their family-friendly environments and the Blue Wahoos are no different! They have a more relaxed and intimate setting, which can be less overwhelming for children compared to the massive crowds at major league stadiums.

Kids will love meeting the mascots, racing across the field in the nightly 5th inning Roach Run, getting an autograph, and jumping in the bounce houses.

Promotional Events and Giveaways: Minor league games frequently feature promotional events, theme nights, and giveaways, which can add extra excitement to your visit. The Wahoos have free giveaways every Friday home game and fireworks every Saturday home game. You can find the complete list of promotions here.

Closer to the Action: Minor league stadiums are usually smaller, which means you can get closer to the field and the players. This makes it much more engaging, especially for young fans eager to see the action up close and possibly interact with players. Minor league teams often go the extra mile to engage with fans.

This level of interaction can create lasting memories and a deeper connection to the game. Well, at least that’s what happened with our youngest!

Check out this season’s schedule, and plan your Pensacola trip during a home game!
