Minor League Stadiums

A jewel of a park in a city on the comeback trail. When you join the throng advancing to the open gates, you get the feeling that this is how a city keeps a small-town flavor. For a family outing, it beats a movie at the mall any day.

Just an hour and a half south of Montreal, this Montreal Expos affiliate plays in the short-season New York-Penn League in one of America’s oldest ballparks. Mom, Dad, and two kids can enjoy Vermont’s only professional baseball for just $10.
