Anyone ever gone to an Erie Seawolves game?

Recommended Posts

I have never been to one, but I figure after the Mud Hens and White Caps, they are the team that makes the most sense for me to see within the organization.

What trips have been worth it? The one I look at all the time is Akron. I know they have a zoo for my wife and I get the game. Has anyone been to Akron to watch a game?

I schedule a business trip to GE in Erie a couple of years ago, made arrangements around game day only to have it rained out. Sat around drinking beer for an hour at the park looking at the tarp on the field, I felt just like I was back in Lakeland.

Went to Erie a couple of years ago on the way back from DC (long side trip via State College). Had a good time.

Not much in Erie besides the Wolves and the casinos.

If you are going to Akron, you could make a side trip to Canton to see the NFL Hall of Fame.

Well, I'm finally doing it! We're going to Akron (I think it was July 15th) for the Erie Seawolves game against Akron. For years I've threatened doing this, but I'm finally going to go to a game. I've ordered my Seawolves hat and ordered my tickets.

Watch the game get rained out.

Redshark,

I can't believe I never thought about the Football Hall of Fame. So far we have two zoo trips (Akron and Cleveland) mixed in there. I was thinking about checking out the Tigers in Cleveland as well. I am keeping Friday night open just in case the game gets rained out in Akron, so we can go on Friday if need be. We have to be back in Bay City on Saturday for Alice Cooper. I think we may be able to arrange that.

Checking in.

I did go to the game. It was a fun time, but it was pretty much a dog game for the Seawolves. I don't remember the score but they got beat pretty good.

Akron is a nice park. I mean, what new park isn't nice these days? I don't know how I got these seats but we were three rows behind the third-base dugout. It always shocks me how often we get tickets like this ordering them maybe a week before the game's date. You'd think some season ticket holder would have these tickets.

It was mascot night and I got my wife THREE MASCOTS autographs.

It's a nice park. If you have the time and Erie comes to town, check it out. Akron, surprisingly, has plenty of stuff to do during a two-day trip.

DeTroppens I was at the Akron series last week. Like others I agree there is a lot to do around the Akron area. There are several non chain restaurants along West Market Street. I especially liked Larry's. If you go a little further west on Market towards Fairlawn their is a nice mall that my wife made a couple of trips to. Also the Football Hall of Fame is down the road. It is a shame the Seawolves couldn't pull out a win in the 4 game series as they had leads in two of the games.

Also I forgot to mention Ken Stewart's Grille on West Market in Fairlawn. Great restaurant with good food and outside and inside dinning.

We didn't do too much in town. We went to the Akron Zoo and then the Seawolves game later that night. Then the next day went to Cleveland for the zoo there.

I am glad I did it. One of the reasons I never did was because I figured it was Akron. What could there be to do in Akron beyond the zoo, the game and the HOF. And I could do the zoo-game thing in Toledo, Grand Rapids and even Lansing (where I've never attended a game yet).

But there would be plenty to do. I think one could take in a weekend there pretty easily. And if you get bored, you have Cleveland about a half-hour away.

I'm pretty sure we'll do that Akron/Cleveland- Erie Seawolves venture at least a couple more times in the next 5-6 years. The next couple of times we'll be more ready to take on the venture.
