There’s nothing better than going out to a baseball game. The thrill of the crowd, the smell of the peanuts, popcorn, and other treats, the excitement of the game, and cheering on the hometown favorites. The Modesto Nuts is a minor league team (MiLB) right here in Modesto at John Thurman Field.
In fact, they are a Class A – Advanced team in the California League and a farm team for the Seattle Mariners. That means one day those players you go to watch here in Modesto, just may be playing for the Seattle Mariners in the future.
If you haven’t been, this is a great outdoor sporting event for the whole family. Even if the kids have a hard time sitting through a whole baseball game, the stadium has a kids Fun Zone. The fun zone is complete with carnival-based games, bounce house, inflatable slide, prize wheel, and speed pitch.
The stadium seats over 5,000 fans and boasts a video scoreboard so everyone can see the action, replays, and their favorite batter up close. The Nuts mascot gets the crowd involved with the game and with the many food concession stands & merchandise stores within close walking distance to all seats, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Want to make it a party? The stadium offers birthday parties for your child with their friends including hot dogs, soda, a personalized cake, an autographed team ball, a visit from the mascot, and their birthday wishes announced on the video board. There’s even the possibility for your child to throw out the first pitch! This is an experience that your child won’t soon forget.
Tickets can be purchased at the stadium box office, ordered online, or over the phone. Ticket prices range from $8 up to $14 with discounts to senior citizens, kids under 12, and military.
