Join us for Family Friendly Entertainment and a “Wave” on the Hill
Mando Field at Rich Park provides the perfect setting for an evening of baseball under the lights. The setting may remind you of the movie “Field of Dreams” or it may seem like a Norman Rockwell painting brought to life.
There is plenty of shade before the sun goes down and there is usually a nice, cool breeze. Enclosed bleachers offer seating to those with more formal tastes while the grassy hill along the first-base line provides seating for those who prefer lawn chairs and blankets. Come on out and join us for a wave when our boys of summer hit one out of the park for a home run or when we retire the other side with a well-executed triple play!
Peanuts and Popcorn and Crackerjacks
The concession stand has the perfect mix of baseball food and snacks; everything from hot dogs all-the-way, roasted peanuts and popcorn, to crackerjacks, sunflower seeds, and of course, Cheer-Wine and other soft-drinks.
