With the start of Spring comes baseball season and the Indianapolis Indians are off to a great start after winning their opening home game at Victory Field. For the past two years, I’ve frequented Victory Field for Indians games because of the affordable fun in a comfortable, family-friendly atmosphere.
Never been to a game, you say? Besides the obvious fact that the Indianapolis Indians are a stellar team with a great record, I’ve outlined 5 reasons why you should buy tickets in 2014 below.
1) Fresh, local beer – Sun King Brewing prepared a special Indians Lager that can only be found at Victory Field during Indians games. This Vienna Style brew features a balanced malt flavor that finishes crisp, thanks to the addition of German Noble hops. It is the perfect light but flavorful beer for basking in the sun and enjoying the view. Osiris, Wee Mac and Cream Ale are also available at various stations throughout Victory Field.
2) The view – Victory Field is in the shadows of the JW Marriott and, when sitting in the reserved or box section, overlooks the beautiful downtown Indianapolis skyline. From that area you can see the manufacturing plant, the corporate office buildings, and White River State Park. For me, I see three different aspects of Indianapolis that remind me why I enjoy living in a diverse city. Stay for the whole game and on select nights you can view a one-of-a-kind fireworks show!
3) Affordable and family friendly entertainment – Most sports games are not cheap to attend, especially when you’re bringing the whole family. Indians games are not only affordable but they foster family fun throughout every inning. From engaging the crowd through t-shirt tosses to games during the breaks, Indians games are something that each member of your family can enjoy. Monday games are Dollar Monday’s, which means that hot dogs, Cracker Jack’s, popcorn buckets and sodas are only a dollar a piece and tend to be packed with families enjoying an affordable night out.
4) Rowdie Bear and Victory Field Ducks – Mascots have to have some level of enthusiasm to fill their roll, but Rowdie Bear takes it to another level. Whether he’s on the filed causing a ruckus or dancing on top of the Indians dugout, Rowdie Bear brings a high level of energy that will make anyone smile. Yesterday I saw that the Victory Field Ducks were following me on Twitter! I really like how interactive Victory Field has become so that fans really feel engaged with the game beyond the 9th inning.
5) Stadium eats – I have no shame in saying I am a bottomless pit when it comes to food at Victory Field. From ultimate nachos to foot long hot dogs, there’s something about the stadium that makes me want to eat everything in sight! What is even better is that it is all moderately priced (and even cheaper on Dollar Monday’s) so I can afford to get more than just a bag of peanuts. Victory Field is designed so that you do not have to walk far to find what you want to eat. Pizza, Mexican food, burgers and fries and more are available so you don’t have to miss much of the game waiting in line. You can also head up to the Captain’s Cove and order food off of their specialty menu, even if you aren’t sitting in that area.
