Summer and baseball. There are few better pairings. Here in South Jordan, Utah, we’re lucky to have the Salt Lake Bees right here in our backyard. The Triple-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels are back at it after a year-long hiatus thanks to the pandemic. Don’t miss out! Here are six reasons you should grab tickets to a Bees game this summer.
1. The Chance to See Future Major Leaguers
A lot of the guys on minor league rosters will be in the big leagues one day soon. Now’s the time to check them out before they’re household names. Some former Bees include Mike Trout, John Lackey, Jered Weaver, and Torii Hunter.
2. The Ballpark
Smith’s Ballpark, home of the Bees, is a gorgeous facility with a gorgeous backdrop – the picturesque Wasatch Mountains.
3. An Opportunity to Bond With Your Crew
Baseball is one of the most spectator-friendly sports out there, especially at the minor league level. The relaxed atmosphere and game’s slow pace makes it easy to spend quality time with your crew while still paying attention to the game. So let the conversation flow!
4. Thirsty Thursday
Speaking of flow, let the suds flow with a trip to a Budweiser Thirsty Thursday, a popular promotion at Smith’s Ballpark. Drinks are just $3 at Thursday home games!
5. The Food
Baseball is better with good food – and the Bees deliver. Enjoy tasty fare of both the savory and sweet variety from vendors like Bohemian Brewery, Bumble’s BBQ, Derks Classics, Flashpoint Grille, Steakadelphia, Snowie, and Dippin’ Dots. You can even order from your phone.
6. The Team Names
The Bees have a phenomenal name in their own right, but take a look around the Pacific Coast League and you can’t help but be wowed by all the creative monikers. The Las Vegas Aviators. The Reno Aces. The El Paso Chihuahuas. The Sugar Land Skeeters. The Albuquerque Isotopes. The Tacoma Rainiers. Amazing all around!
