It is an old school ballpark, but great for the kids to see and meet up and coming ballplayers. First pitch is just after the sun sets behind the wall.

The playing field appears to be in good shape, which beats everything else about the spot. The parking is rough and doesn't make much sense. The ticket booth, entrance area would be a disaster with any kind of a crowd, but since there are few,...More

OK it's hot but it's Bakersfield in the summer. If you like heat it's a no brainer. If you don't it still is a no brainer. You get up close to the teams. Autograph no problem, Fun during the game comes in many forms. Children...More
