Sit close enough to hear the pop of the catcher’s mitt. Sip $1 PBRs on Dollar Drink Night. Embrace low-tech promos like Slime Night (dig around in buckets of green goo) or Worm Wednesdays (discounts with a valid fishing license). Even take your dog on Wet Nose Wednesdays. Not to mention that minor league teams definitely have the coolest mascots and merch (Hickory Crawdads! Columbia Fireflies!). These six teams are within day-trip range. milb.com
