Coolest Place to Watch a Ball Game

Pensacola Blue Wahoos Stadium

351 W Cedar St, Pensacola, FL

(850) 934-8444

Take me out to the ball game!  The Florida Panhandle is now home to the Pensacola Blue Wahoos right here on the Emerald Coast! Located on the Pensacola Bay, the stadium is one of the most premiere facilities in Minor League Baseball.  A view of the water and a view of a ball game promise a great summer night!  Add the peanuts, popcorn, and Cracker Jacks and it’s sure to be an unforgettable evening!

 After an inaugural season in 2012, the Wahoos are heading into their fourth season. Four years in and the Wahoos continue to attract large crowds after a history of hosting 40 sellout crowds for the 5,038 seat stadium in 2012. This season’s games last through the beginning of September with tickets starting at just $10. Season tickets are also available for any of the box seats, club seats, or party decks, so come out and root for the home team!

 The fun, family atmosphere has activities for all ages! Adults can relax and enjoy the game and kids can participate in events like the annual roach chase by running across the field and catching the giant roach, which is really a person in a bug costume. Every game tons of kids line up for this event and have a blast letting out their energy on the big field where the players are! Kids can also get pictures with Kazoo, the loveable Blue Wahoos mascot. Kazoo is an aquatic themed mascot that is said to have come right out of the Pensacola Bay himself! He is always seen happily roaming around the ballpark and cheering on the team.

 Of course, no baseball game is complete without concessions! From classics like hotdogs and cheeseburgers to shrimp po’ boys and popcorn that comes in a bucket shaped like a baseball helmet, there is something to satisfy everybody’s hunger. And when you’re thirsty and a soda or water just won’t do the trick, you can find a variety of adult beverages to suit your desires.  As you leave the game, don’t forget to stop by the Bait and Tackle Team Store for some Blue Wahoo’s apparel or a souvenir.

A Wahoo’s game is a great way to make memories for everybody.  Let this All-American pastime be the setting for your next birthday party whether on a game day or offseason day and soon you’ll be singing, “Take me out to the ballgame” while making your birthday the happiest of all!

Cool factors: Stadium on the water, games last through September, Kazoo the mascot, events for kids, birthday party planning available
