Take Me Out To The Ball Game!

It's A Beautiful Day For A Ballgame!

Major League Baseball will be starting in just a couple of weeks. It's a great way to spend a couple of hours. For me, being outside in the crisp air and cheering my favorite team (the Cubs) is such fun.

Some of the ballparks have Dog Days where you can take your own dogs. Others have pet-oriented promotions for owners.It's really important to get tickets in advance because they sell out really quickly. Also, some parks have special rules in place so you need to make sure your dog qualifies.

For instance, the San Diego Padres fans dog tickets have to be applied for. The lucky dogs are drawn at random and the application forms will not be available till June. Other parks require that you bring proof of rabies vaccination. Some teams like the Florida Marlins and the Cincinnati Reds will be having two game dates for dog owners.

Here's a calendar of the parks that will be participating for 2010:

Let's Discuss!

Do you plan to take your dog to a baseball game this summer? What's your favorite team?


  1. I'm a Giants fan and have always wanted to take Baxter to dog day at the park. I think this year we're going to do it!

  2. The Giants have the coolest ballpark. I always get a kick out of how there are people in boats who are out there to grab the stray homerun baseballs. Usually, with buying tickets for dogs, the earlier the better but the ballpark will let you know. Thanks for writing.
