Despite baseball's unofficial theme song, peanuts and crackerjacks were replacements for the original, mid-1850s snacks of heavily salted licorice and wooden chewin' slabs.

The newest addition to the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball, the Kansas City T-Bones enthrall fans with powerful swings, swift throws, and agile base-running. Ballpark guests will soak up the excitement from select seats, located 50 feet or less from the right- and left-field lines, where they can catch pop flies and admire the portrait of the groundskeeper's mom mown into the grass. This season, former Pittsburgh Pirate Ray Sadler leads the batting roster, posting 68 RBIs and walloping 14 balls out of the park over 62 games. Southpaw Reid Santos rules the bullpen with 62 strikeouts over 86.2 innings and a scepter topped with a King Tut bobblehead.
Lined with concession stands, bathrooms, and 4,800 seats, CommunityAmerica Ballpark swathes guests in comfort, and a children's play area with a view of the field lets wee ones enjoy the matchup during a rousing game of freeze tag. Cars may bask in free parking as fans dash into the park for promotions such as water-bottle giveaways (Tuesday, August 2), $1 beers (Thursday, August 11), and psychic animal communication (KC Zoo Night on August 3; first 1,000 kids 12 and under get a complimentary zoo ticket).
Children age 2 and younger do not need tickets if they are not occupying their own seats.
