Summer Fun? Florence Freedom Baseball Ticket Giveaway!



Larry and I were putting together our summer bucket list and looking up things to do in the Tri-State and realized we'd never been to a Florence Freedom game

You can't miss the stadium - it's right off 71/75 and beckons you to eat peanuts and cheer on the Freedom!

We walked around the park before the game and saw a lot of specials - this one is unique and you won't see it at the Reds game! Eat peanuts, bring back the shells and get a free drink!

They have quite a few different areas of the park to get adult beverages - Larry found this bottle of Miller Lite that he was ready to take home!

The one thing I really like about minor league games is the amount of activities for kids - there's a speed pitch area right outside a huge play area. Larry really wanted to see if he could beat the kid...but I wouldn't let him. Here's more info about the Florence Freedom Kids Club - it's a great deal for $20!

They have games during the game too. I get bored easily - so all the games between innings make the time go quicker. This was the big underwear run - they had kids in giant pairs of underwear running the bases - yeeha!

Besides Belle (the pink furry thing I'm with in the first picture) they also have Wally the Water Tower - his back side even says "Florence Y'all". Poor Wally was deflating right before our eyes - he had to run off field as he melted!

We even got to see a home run! Oh yeah - there was a game going on - the Freedom are pretty good. They're not actually affiliated with any major league team - so these guys are really playing because they love it. Someone from last year's squad was picked up by a big league team though.

Belle decided to come over and give Larry a little love! 

Larry found a hat in their fan store to bring home for the man cave! 

We were fortunate enough to go on Bobblehead night and every two tickets got a bobblehead! Actually there are a TON of fun event nights - fireworks, $1 beer and a lot more. 

I think it's interesting that these players are from all over the country (a few Cinci guys) and they stay with host families! Host a player and get free tickets all season! The games are a lot of fun and if you're looking for something to do for a work outing or a family get-together - they have a couple of different areas to host those and provide food! 

The Freedom provided me a four-pack of tickets to giveaway and there are PLENTY of games left in the season! Enter below and good luck! Can't wait? Tickets start at $10!
