"Time and good friends are two things that become more valuable the older you get."
Wenatchee is chock full of choices for fun things to do. This year I decided to do something I've never done before by buying 2 season passes to the Wenatchee AppleSox baseball games. I've been to a number of games in the past but have never purchased season tickets.
Here is my friend Shirley with the Applesox mascot, Coyote. Coyote is a very personable mascot and has a lot of fun entertaining and interacting with the crowd.
The Applesox is a collegiate summer baseball team, established in 2000 in Wenatchee. The Applesox play in the North Division of the 12-team West Coast League with teams from Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. Home games are played at Paul Thomas Sr. Stadium on the campus of Wenatchee Valley College. These summer baseball teams are designed to develop the skills of college eligible players, with many players having major league aspirations.
Here are my long time friends, Sue and Mark. I specifically requested my seats to be next to theirs.
There are 4 main things I love about the location of our seats:
1) They are in the front row on the 3rd base side, near the home team dugout.
2) The location protects us from the early summer wind.
3) The location is shaded from the hot summer evening sun.
4) The location is near the concessions stand. What's a game without a hotdog and beer?
The Applesox are celebrating their 20th season, with 6 league championships during the first 19 years. The season runs from early June through mid-August, with 32 home games.
Besides spending more time with friends, it's been fun to run into other people I know that I don't see often.
The Applesox games are a wonderful opportunity for affordable summer-long entertainment in Wenatchee.
