If you're coming to Texas or if you're fortunate enough to already live here, be sure to stop at Dell Diamond in Round Rock, just north of Austin, for a fabulous game of baseball. The Round Rock Express played at home last night against the Sacramento Rivercats and we had a fabulous evening.
Johnny and I decided long ago that "date night" would not end once we were married, so we are always on the lookout for affordable, unique places to go. A friend of mine gave us two tickets to the game at Dell Diamond and even treated us for the parking fee. We purchased a large root beer to share and spent the evening watching the baseball game while the sun set over the park.
Visiting a ballpark is always a good time and minor league baseball offers a much more personal experience than professional baseball. There are lots of interactive games starring fans picked from the stands, many chances to catch a stray flying baseball, and even free t-shirts that are shot into the crowds. Dell Diamond also has a swimming pool, playground, climbing wall, and more.
We had an absolutely wonderful time and even got to see ourselves on the big screen. Although our team didn't win last night, our date night was a home run! Where was YOUR last date night?
