TOLEDO MUD HENS
   TOLEDO, OHIO

If you’re looking for a family-friendly, affordable, memorable night out, I would strongly encourage you to consider going to a Toledo Mud Hens game. Toledo has been named the #1 minor league sports city in the country. You only have to attend one game before you figure out why.

First of all, it’s just plain fun. Everyone is there to simply sit back, relax and enjoy the game. Grab your favorite stadium grub, settle into your seat and enjoy the night. Here, you’ll find most everyone is unplugged and engaged in what’s happening on the field.

You’ll create memories that will last a lifetime. At a Mud Hens game, it doesn’t matter if you are two, a great grandparent or somewhere in between. What matters is that you’re taking time away from your never ending to-do list and you’re investing in time with those you love.

You don’t have to worry about breaking the budget. Certainly, you might shell out a bit more for a soda or pretzel than you normally would, but the point is, overall, the tickets and the experience are truly affordable when compared to other family night outs.

The Mud Hens are a really great baseball team. The baseball that you’ll see on the Fifth Third Field in downtown Toledo is quality baseball. The players are great, they’re friendly to the crowd and it’s apparent that the home crowd loves them in return.

The Toledo Mud Hens have taken entertainment to the next level. With awesome shows such as the upcoming Rock ‘N’ Blast Fourth of July celebration, tent camping on the field, Jeep Fest weekend and so much more, you’ll be busy all summer long!

Don’t worry about getting hungry either. You’ll enjoy plenty of dining options, special event dining and even a beer in a bat promotion.
