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.
