    Home of the London Majors, LABATT MEMORIAL PARK is a baseball stadium near the Forks of the Thames River in central London and is believed to be the Oldest continually operating baseball grounds in the world, dating back to 1877.
    The main entrance to the ballpark, which is 8.7 acres in size, is at 25 Wilson Avenue. It has a wonderful natural grass field and holds 5100 seats.
    After Cy Young Award-winning pitcher Fergie Jenkins pitched his final major league game on September 26, 1983, London Majors' owner-player Arden Eddie convinced Jenkins to pitch for the Majors in 1984-85, commuting from his home near Chatham, Ontario.

    London Knights

    if you happen to be in london during the OHL hoceky season, it's worth while seeing a Knights game. That's if you can manage to get tickets because they do tend to sell out fast. London has a relatively new arena, the John Labatt Centre(JLC) which is conviently located in the heart of downtown. So after the game if you're not broke(beer is pricey there) you can walk to one of the many local bars.

    The knights had a fantasic season last year and are still going strong this year.

    Equipment: sweater/light coat and lots of money(again, beer is not cheap). Or you could try to sneak in food/drinks.
