River City Rascals versus Gateway Grizzlies


Keaggy, Diane Toroian, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


The St. Louis Cardinals are not the only game in town. The Gateway Grizzlies and River City Rascals of the independent Frontier League also boast great baseball action.

Total cost? A family of four can sit behind home plate for the same cost of a single seat in the nosebleeds at Busch. Plus, the kids get to meet the players, go crazy in the playground and run the bases.

RC: Ruffy

"We'll still have the Krispy Kreme burger," saidAdam Young, who said the stadium sells some 4,400 donut burgers every season. "Whenever there is a ranking of baseball's crazy food items, we are up there."

Don't miss:

The Rascals pay tribute to Cardinal greats with aWhitey Herzog bobblehead giveaway (July 9) and aTony La Russa bobblehead giveaway (July 28).

The Grizzlies host six fireworks nights throughout the summer. Not to be missed Zooperstars, the surreally comic inflatable animal act featuringElephant Presley andBarack Ollama (July 13).

For the kids:

RR: Kids can play on the completely rebuilt playground and run the bases after every game. During "Signature Saturdays," fans can chat to players and get autographs.

GG: The Kids Zone features a recently renovated playground, new inflatables and face painters. Kids also lead the nightly fifth- inning parade and run the bases on Sundays. …
