Are you a sports fan or have a future major league sports player in your family? Then take them on a tour of your local ballpark where home runs are “splash hits!” During a behind the scenes tour of a sports arena, visitors learn about the history of a sports team that is deeply ingrained in the fabric of American culture, the construction of a stadium and how a sports team is operated on a daily basis.
In Southern California, we are lucky enough to have 4 major sports stadiums that offer both public and private tours for community groups, schools and scout troops. When you call to set up a tour, make sure to ask guest services about the price of the tour, where to meet, what to bring, how long it will last and if they have a policy about taking photos. Most importantly, have fun!
