Following a day filled with exquisite beaches, an unexpected stumble into a locally renowned seafood restaurant, we arrived at our ultimate destination for the day. Bright House Field. Home of the Clearwater Threshers.

Even the ticket window was nice! $5 got us seats on the outfield grass, and $9.50 got you tickets in the sections directly behind home plate. It was obvious, however, once we walked in that the preferred area of seating was beyond the left field wall at Frenchy's Tiki Pavilion. We made our way towards the outfield berm area, the long way, in order to take in all that Bright House Field had to offer.

The trip towards our seats was not finished without fetching some mini corn dogs at a concession stand located next to the World of Beer, that were quite delicious. The outfield grass, at first was nice, as I prefer to sit in the outfield to watch baseball games. I prefer the view to sitting near the infield. The luxury of this view was soon not worth the annoyance of many children that arrived shortly after first pitch. At first, the really nice guy that was doing security in the outfield helped us in our attempt to watch the game in peace from the outfield. In about the fourth inning, it became too much, and we moved towards the first base line where there were very few people.

This was definitely my favorite game on this trip. I can see why they lead the league in attendance, as their ballpark is very, very nice. It has all the nuances of a Major League ballpark, with a Minor League feel. I would highly recommend Clearwater as a vacation destination, not only for the baseball, but as well as the beautiful beaches and the excellent seafood.
