So I'm a little ashamed to admit this, seeing as how I've basically lived only an hour and a half away my entire life, but I've never been to a Peoria Chiefs game and I'm determined to get to one this year.

For those who have been, anything I should try to line up or know before going? Seats, spots before or after the game, hotel (depending on the amount of alcohol consumption), things to avoid?

Thanks!

I'm 20 minutes from the Detroit Tigers A affiliate and I can promise you that there really are no bad seats with A-ball. I like to spend the extra couple dollars to get "box seats" (its like $15) but the $7 lawn seats are a nice way of watching the game. The one thing I would suggest is checking out where the sun will be when you go to the game. Nothing sucks more than spending the first few innings battling a facing west. Oh and enjoy the cheaper beer.

Seriously. I go up to Daytona for a month or so every summer to help a friend out with his boat cleaning business. I watch the D-Cubs for almost nothing. There are days when I do watch for nothing, or just pay general admission and sit wherever I want without bothering anyone. The beer and food is cheap, the players are very accessible, and there are tons of hot women who love minor league baseball and guys who buy them beer.
