Maybe you don't find televised baseball games all that thrilling, but anyone can enjoy watching a game live, up close and personal. So minor league baseball is a great entertainment option. The triple-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, the Tides has been in existence since 1961 and has won the Governor's Cup five times. Buying a seat to watch them play at Harbor Park is affordable (about $10 to $14), and the local light rail stops there. An evening at the ballpark is a great experience, offering summer air, the smell of popcorn and peanuts, funny antics by the mascots, oversized beers, and the chance for kids to catch a foul ball.
