The Goldeyes are our professional baseball team. They play in the Northern League. It is special because it is very affordable, and the fans, mascot (Goldie) and staff get behind the team, and cheer them to victory.
Equipment: You should bring a hat, sunscreen and a baseball glove because there are a ton of foul balls hit into the stands.
