Baseball fans and non-baseball fans alike will enjoy attending a Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp game. If you love baseball, then you’ll have a fantastic time catching a game at the Baseball Grounds, which feature excellent sight lines all over the park. You’ll also enjoy the opportunity to see future Miami Marlins stars take the field as well.
Non-baseball fans, on the other hand, will enjoy the wealth of family entertainment available throughout the ballpark. The Jumbo Shrimp’s lovable mascot Southpaw entertains the crowd during breaks in the action, and the playground in left field is perfect for keeping kids entertained during the game. There is even a putting green for adults who are looking for something to do besides watch the game.
Another thing that makes attending a Jumbo Shrimp game a fantastic event is the fan support found at the Baseball Grounds. The Jumbo Shrimp have built up a fairly rabid fan base over the years creating a fun and somewhat intense atmosphere that is absent at some minor league ballparks.
The opportunity to see future major league stars, the wealth of family entertainment, and the diehard Jumbo Shrimp fans make attending a Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp game a fun experience for anyone in the Jacksonville area.
