  • Any seat in the house is a good seats and the outfield grass seats are cheap. Don't forget about the pool pass for parties and general fun. My preference is to buy founders tickets which include premi...  read more »
  • We love going to the Rough Riders games. We especially enjoy the games with fireworks. Great for a family. 
  • if you live in the metroplex or just driving through, seeing a game at the Dr Pepper Ballpark is a highlight. Its inexpensive, fun and relaxed all on a smaller scale that the Rangers park. 
  • Great atmosphere! It's like a hometown ballgame! They really work hard to make this a delight for the family. There's a playground for the kids who need a break from sitting. The brats and hotdogs are really good. Over many years I've been to the park, several times as part of a large group where they offer all you can eat hotdogs, brats, chips, and drinks. If you are part of a group and you want a straw, bring one. They have over the years had a permanent sign up that says, sorry we are out of straws, sorry for the inconvenience. It must not be cost effective to provide straws to the groups. That's a small negative issue. There's a table that sells grab bags for $5. That's a great option for the kids to get a lot of souvenirs for a little cost. I can't wait for next year's season to start again.
  • We love this ballpark! Very clean, family friendly and fun. Love the mascots and all that they do to entertain. The team is good and all seats in the park are good.
  • I've brought my family here a few times and all have enjoyed it. Ages are baby to 50+. Some of them haven't been to a baseball game in many years and for one it was his first. I can't tell you enough how kid friendly Dr Pepper Ballpark is. From the time we entered to the time we left kids are having a blast. My son got a game ball and I had a player sign it. He won't remember the game, but he will always have a baseball from his first game. The fireworks show is pretty good, food is really good, parking is awesome compared to a major league game. Check out the Rough Ridders website for promotionals. They have a lot of options throughout the season.
  • It's my favorite minor league ballpark. The atmosphere is great and family oriented. If you show up early you can easily get autographs of prospects and coaches. The scoreboard is massive for this type of stadium and there is not a bad seat in the house. The Choctaw Lazy River is a nice addition. Think about a baseball game...while lazily tanning yourself on a inner tube floating in the right field "bleacher" section. Great promotions and the concessions are reasonably priced. Parking is great too. Make sure you order tickets beforehand and grab a parking pass for $5. That's the best deal. Have fun at the ballpark!
  • The Choctaw lazy river is now open and it's incredible. I'm not a big sports fan but this is a great way to enjoy baseball. On Thursday nights they sell individual tickets ($39 each) to the lazy river seating area. The dinner menu of hot dogs, bratwurst dogs, cole slaw, cookies, chip, popcorn, and sodas is included. Beers are $1 from 6-8. They open the area at 6pm. We got there early and got a table with shade. That was nice for eating our meal. But we spent the rest of the time in the pool. I was surprised how much more fun the minor league was than a major league. Everyone was more laid back and happy. And much less marketing in your face. Highly recommend that if you aren't a huge baseball fan, this experience is more fun than a typical baseball game. And in hot Texas summer's what could be better than watching from the pool?
