It’s been baseball mania on Tiny Talk this week, leaving many of the Tiny Prints staffers longing for a ball game outing! From baseball birthday parties to the best ballpark food, we can’t stop chatting about America’s favorite pastime. A recent Mom Talk Post about a baby’s first big league experience sparked further conversation around the office and we want our savvy readers to weigh in.

Baseball stadiums are often filled with rowdy crowds, long lines and seats costing anywhere between $20 to $200 per ticket—is bringing the little ones along a good idea?

Luckily for parents, stadiums are full of kid-friendly perks nowadays, but your efforts to keep them happy may often result in you missing a lot of the game. Between feeding, changing and keeping them safe and interested, a successful trip to the ballpark with your baby or small child can be a difficult feat—is it worth it?  Have you braved the crowds and lines to sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” with your little ones? You tell us!

  1. The last time and only time I took my son to a baseball game, he was about 14 months old. We were in a lux corporate suite, courtsey of friends with a toddler of their own, and even that was a huge hassle.

    I don’t even remember who was playing, since I saw NONE of the game. I spent the whole time tending to my child- feeding, walking, entertaining. Then, we had to leave early so he could take a nap. If I had paid to be there, I would have been so annoyed with myself.

    I say wait until they’re old enough to enjoy the game on their own terms.
