Catch a Portland Sea Dogs Baseball Game

You don’t need to go all the way to Fenway Park so see great baseball. In fact, the Portland Sea Dogs are the Double-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, and sometimes players from Boston do rehab stints with the Dogs, so you never know who you might see. Hadlock Field is styled after Fenway Park with one big difference: As far as we know, you can’t get a delicious Sea Dogs Biscuit ice cream sandwich at Fenway Park. Baseball is the great American pastime, and going to a minor league game is both affordable and exciting. Swing batter, batter! Also, as far as mascots go, we think Slugger could take Wally in a street fight.
