About Monday Afternoon: Clinton LumberKings, May 25, 2015

This season, when I’m on the road, I’ll be writing a short, on-the-spot blog post about each Minor League ballpark that I visit. Then, upon my return home, I will provide the multifaceted blog coverage that you have come to know and, perhaps, even love. Let’s get to it, lest it get to us! 

May 25, 2015: Ashford University Field, home of the Clinton LumberKings (Class A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners)

Opponent: Burlington Bees, 1:00 p.m. start time (seven-inning doubleheader, after the previous night’s ballgame had been rained out)

Ashford University Field, from the outside:

Ashford University Field (from the inside):

023Culinary Creation: The Garbage Pail (a full-to-bursting smorgasbord of fried delectables)

Your Groundbreaking and Subversive Ballpark Joke of the Day:

It’s All Over: Nothing like a walk-off win to sweep a doubleheader.

Next Up:

I really loved the ballpark in Clinton. To me, it had an old time feel to it, and some great baseball fans. I loved the ‘garbage pail’, too!
