“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for the Staten Island Yankees. I received tickets for the game as well as food vouchers to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
Last week, hubby and I were able to take Lucas and Nicholas on an adventure to Staten Island to see the Staten Island Yankees play. The boys had never been to Staten Island and to be fair, neither had we (other than the ferry terminal).
It was Lucas' first experience watching baseball other than on tv and Nicholas' second time as he'd just gone with his grandpa, papi and sister to see the Major League Yankees.
Nicholas was thrilled that the Staten Island Yankees had a smaller ball park with up close seats and great views! He especially liked that we were right by the Yankees' dugout and could see them so up close and personal. It was so fun to see Lucas take everything in for the first time! At one point he happily exclaimed, "I like baseball!!" :)
Even though they had fun watching the game, the highlight for them was definitely the food! They enjoyed some yummy treats and thankfully because of the minor league atmosphere, there weren't terribly long lines to order the food and we didn't have to wait too long to satisfy our hunger!
They even got a special treat of cotton candy. I've never seen two boys inhale something so fast! Oy!
We had such a pretty view of Manhattan from the stadium and overall it was such a fun experience! And I must say, Minor League Baseball (my first experience) is much more crowd interactive and entertaining than the major leagues! The boys even had the opportunity to try and catch some balls! We went home empty handed but with so many fun memories made!
If you live the NYC area, I highly recommend checking out this fun, family experience! Especially if you have younger kids, this is the way to go! It's such a family fun experience and allows for close up views of the game that no major league experience provides! You can check out all the details here: http://atmilb.com/1x4QL1c. Or Visit them on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
While we drove to the game, we decided afterwards that our next trip will be by public transportation. The ferry ride alone would be so fun for the kids and overall, a cheaper way to travel! But either way, there is parking close by and even during rush hour, we made it without a problem!
It was such a fun night and I'm so glad we went! It was so fun to hang out with just the 2 boys and see this new experience through their eyes. Sophia is begging for us to go again so she can experience it too!
What are some fun things you've done this summer?
