    Last night a friend and took my son to see his second Portland Seadogs game of the season. (We also went to the home opener because my son had earned tickets through a Seadogs reading promotion, and he got to be part of the on-field flag crew during opening ceremonies, but I won’t brag to you any more about that.) It was a beautiful night for baseball – balmy weather (especially for April), clear skies, a gentle breeze.  It was disappointing to me to see how few people were there.

    Hadlock field is an amazing place to see baseball. It’s such a small park that there are truly no bad seats, and I have never, ever had any trouble getting tickets, even on the day of the game.  Being that it’s school vacation, perhaps you can pack up the family and take in a game today – today’s game is at noon and they’re even offering a special four-ticket package. Or, if it’s just you and a friend, the most expensive tickets in the house are $9 and most are a lot less.  Or, plan ahead: the next home stand starts April 27th. Here’s a recent review from the Portland Daily Sun of the food options at Hadlock.

    Live baseball is a great experience for the whole family. If you have kids, or are just a big kid at heart, go see a game. I promise you won’t be disappointed (yes, even if they lose).

    Here’s a link to the Portland Seadogs web page. You can also like them on Facebook to get all the most up-to-date updates.

    Hadlock Field is located at 271 Park Avenue in Portland, near the Portland Expo. Not sure where that is? Here’s a map.

    There is lots of $5 parking near the field, or the Seadogs website lists a number of nearby spots that offer free parking for the game.


    "Oh, that's one of my favorite places to visit!" - living in Portland, Maine I hear that all the time. So, when you visit, I want you to see more than just the tourist stuff that everyone sees. I want you to see the Portland I love. So, I write about it.

        VERY, very chilly. I brought my snow-pants, actually – first time I’d worn them all winter – and I was glad I did. We stayed to the bitter end (because my son wanted to). We’ve been to games in the snow, though, so I suppose I shouldn’t complain TOO much.
