The Charlotte Knights are the Chicago White Sox Triple A baseball team. Karen and I donned our Cubs gear and headed for the BB&T Ballpark in Uptown Charlotte Friday (8-18-22) to watch a game before their season ended.
Severe thunderstorms were forecast to pass through in waves about the time the game started. We packed our best rain gear so not a drop fell on us.
The Minor League atmosphere is relaxing. They put a lot more effort into unusual entertainment and promotions to bring people to the ballpark.There are many reasons to prefer Minor League games over the Big League Boys; tickets are a fraction of the price you pay in a Major League park, beer is cheaper and offer a lot more choices, the promotions are all family oriented, rivalries are taken far less seriously and players seem to try harder.
We chose Friday night for the fireworks show after the game.
