If you enjoy the national pasttime, you’re going to love watching the Futures Collegiate League Baseball games! There are no nose-bleed seats at Leominster’s Doyle Field; you get to see the action up close at every game.
And don’t worry about remembering players’ stats. This is college ball, and every season brings a new crop of players, creating new teams to cheer on throughout the season. What’s more, you never know — one of these players just might make it to the big leagues some day!
Now entering its seventh year, the Futures League offers a chance for families to enjoy baseball — and ballfield snacks — at affordable prices.
And don’t forget Digger! Proudly wearing the number K9 on his jersey, Digger is the team mascot and a fan favorite. He loves having his photo taken with fans, and has been known to instigate a foot (or paw) race around the bases with youngsters, just for fun.
Doyle Field is a family-friendly place, encompassing a football stadium and track, plenty of bleachers and a fenced in field. The season includes special nights, too, with tributes to the military, or promoting outdoor fitness, adding to the home-town experience.
No matter when you’re visiting Johnny Appleseed Country this summer, you’re almost sure to be able to take in a ballgame. The Dirt Dawgs season starts on June 1 with a home game, and wraps up in early August. The league has a busy schedule, so there are plenty of chances to see some great baseball. Most games start at 6:15 pm (Sundays at 4:35). To see the full schedule, visit the team’s website, dirtdawgsball.com.
