Lake Monsters Baseball

Welcome to the Vermont Lake Monsters. Our minor league baseball team holds a special pride in the people of Vermont, especially of Burlington and the surrounding areas, the the stadium is the oldest or one of the oldest in the country. 
People come for the tradition. For the community. 
Dave played baseball in school. He has a certain respect for the skill that goes into each game. I come for the people watching, because I love Dave, and ... well, we both come for the beer and hot dogs. 
I had to include this photo. Note the blond, little girl that could have been me when I was young. The Lake Monsters games are certainly a family event...with cotton candy, snow cones and all. How much of the time are people watching the game? It's unclear. We left during the 7th inning after over two hours of slow play. 
If you build it, they will come. And come we did. We are counting down the days until the 25th when it is 25 cent hot dog night. We'll be eating dinner there:) We hope to see you there.

  1. Hope you had a blast at hot dog night =) That was my first Lake Monsters game; and what a treat. Too bad they nearly had their asses handed to them, but they put up a great fight at the end.
