We’re just days away from the first regular season baseball games of the year, and what could be better than enjoying America’s pastime with your best friend? With the hotdogs and popcorn, it’s a dog’s dream come true! To make planning easy, we’ve gathered a complete list of Major League Baseball’s 2017 scheduled dog friendly ball games.
It’s exciting to see more “Bark in the Park” and “Dog Days,” being added to the schedules in major and minor league ballparks across the country. For these special events, a special section of the stands is usually reserved for people attending their pups. Not only is it a unique opportunity to make pawsome memories with your dog, but a portion of the dog friendly ticket proceeds generally goes to benefit local shelters and rescues.
If your pup is ready to woof, woof, woof for his favorite team, get your tickets now. Even better – plan a pet friendly road trip around the country and catch a bunch of dog friendly games!
The Braves aren’t hosting a Bark in the Park this year while they settle into their new stadium, but do look forward to having them in the future. The Phillies, Rockies, Tigers, and White Sox all had dog friendly games in 2016, but haven’t announced their plans for the 2017 season yet – this post will be updated as more information becomes available.
In addition to all the games listed above, the Arizona Diamondbacks have designated 20 Sunday and Monday games when “Dog Days of Summer” ticket packages are available on their new dog friendly patio. Starting at $160, these packages include a semi-private space for four people and one dog, All-You-Can-Eat hot dogs, soda, water, popcorn, peanuts, chips, dog friendly ice cream, and access to the outdoor/indoor (air conditioned) dog park.
Each stadium has its own requirements for proof of vaccinations, weight limits, and other particulars, so be sure to visit the website or call the ticket office to confirm the details in advance. And remember, many minor league baseball teams have similar “Bark at the Park” promotions, so check them out, too.
And now the words every dog’s been waiting to hear … PLAY BALL!!
