252 Derby Ave., West Haven, CT; 203-782-1666.

Portland Sea Dogs, Hadlock Field, Double A

There’s no better way to top a day in Maine’s lovely bayside city than with a night rooting for the Red Sox’s newest Double A team at an intimate brick ballpark. Last season, the nearly 400,000 fans (one of the highest AA fan totals in the country) watched in awe as Sea Dog pitcher Josh Beckett, touted as the next Nolan Ryan, dominated opposing batters with his 97-mile-per-hour fastball, en route to being named Baseball America’s Minor League Player of the Year. Plus, kids will love the Sea Dog mascot.

271 Park Ave., Portland, ME; 800-936-3647.

Lowell Spinners, Edward A. LeLacheur Park, Single A

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.

Aiken St., Lowell, MA; 978-459-2255.

Vermont Expos, Centennial Field, Single A

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. Burlington and Lake Champlain are worth a visit anytime; taking in an Expos game and seeing the kids laugh at Champ, the ebullient mascot, make a weekend even more memorable.

Colchester Ave., Burlington, VT; 802-655-4200.
