Worcester Tornadoes – Great for the Family

tornadoesThe Worcester Tornadoes in their 5th year are still providing great family entertainment at prices that won’t break the bank.  Minor league baseball has long been a great option for families looking to catch a baseball game without having to take a loan out to pay for it.  In today’s economy teams like the Worcester Tornadoes, the Lowell Spinners and the Pawtucket Red Sox are a great alternative to an outing to Fenway Park.

If you are not from the Worcester are you may not be aware of the Tornadoes or the league in which they play.  They play in the CAN-AM league(Canadian-American) league which this year only has 6 Teams.

  • Worcester Tornadoes
  • Brockton Rox
  • American Defenders of New Hampshire
  • New Jersey Jackals
  • Quebec Les Capitales
  • Sussex Skyhawks

If you’re an “old timer” like me you are bound to recognize the manager of the Tornadoes, Rich Gedman.  Rich Gedman is originally from Worcester and played with the Red Sox as a catcher from 1980 – 1990.

The Tornadoes play on Holy Cross’s Fitton Field which is a historic field where the likes of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig actually played.  The ticket prices run between 6$ and $14 per seat depending on the section.

Minor League venues are usually pretty kid friendly so they make for a great family day trip.  The Worcester Tornadoes have a Tykes Club which is for kids 12 and under that if you join your kids can take part in special activities at the Sunday games.  This is a great option if you plan on going to many games for just $15.

Tickets are available throught September 7th so don’t miss out.  I think the Tornadoes are in first place as of right now…
