  • Modesto Nuts are awesome very kid friendly and not over priced
  • Do not get the lobster roll! Super expensive and nasty tasting. Eat something before you get here. Will Call is ONLY on the West entrance. Website doesn't state that. The field is nice and seats are pretty cheap. This is a good team. Much better than the Louisville Bats. Read up on the history of this field and all the great players that have come from here. It's worth a visit.
  • Great concessions
  • So fun for watching a game on a friday
  • Long lines, horrible food, expensive food, bad everything.
