    This is the place to go if you want good family entertainment at a very reasonable price. Nothing better than going to a ball game and having a hot dog and a beer or soda. Tickets to go see the Indians are very cheap and there's not a bad seat in the house at all. Fireworks night is great family entertainment after the game and also their family feast night, where hot dogs, pop and other items are on for a dollar a piece. On these nights you can take a family of four to a ball game and feed them for cheaper than going to the movies. See more..
