Located in the heart of Frisco is the Minor League Baseball team, the Frisco Rough Riders who play at Dr. Pepper Ballpark. This is one of the best minor league ballparks in the country to catch a game, and the entertainment lasts much longer than just the 9 innings in the game. Mascots races, diaper derbies, water balloon tosses, and two-stepping on the dugout are just a few of the sights you will see at the ballpark. Then there is the food... there are two separate all-you-care-to-eat options, one including beer and wine, and the other for just sodas and water. If you go completely all inclusive, there is an ice cream dessert bar as well as 4 separate "restaurants" to choose from in the stands. The easier option is the Teddy Club (named for Teddy Roosevelt, a Rough Rider) where you can just go up and get your hot dog or popcorn from one location, and return as many times as you like. This is a little lighter on the pocketbook at only 18 dollars a game.
