Scramble for foul balls at a minor league ballparkYou can pay big money for tickets to see the Nationals or Orioles this summer, but neither will offer the perks of minor league baseball. Promotions like Extreme Noise Night at the Bowie Baysox (June 29), Superman Jersey Night at the Potomac Nationals (July 5) and Cowboy Monkey Rodeo Night at the Frederick Keys (Aug. 17) are part of the magic of the farm league. Tickets cost a fraction of big-league prices, the seats are right on top of the field (hence those foul balls) and the concessions are mostly gooey and deep fried.
