Monongalia County Ballpark
I'm so excited that the Monongalia County Ballpark has opened! One of my favorite things to do in Charleston was go to Power games, and I really developed a love for Minor League Baseball. Nearly any day of the week during summer, there's a game going on. It's this central gathering place for folks in the community, and it's super fun. Minor League Baseball has its own little quirky culture, and I'm excited to see it develop at the Monongalia County Ballpark.
I've been to this ballpark quite a few times now: first to see some WVU games and then to see the Black Bears. And the offerings differed depending on who is playing. For WVU, there are Sodexo items, like hotdogs, burgers, chicken tenders, nachos, pretzels, peanuts, cracker jacks.
For the Black Bears games, they expand on those offers and add items like pepperoni rolls! They are from Julia's, and they offer them warm and split with chili and cheese. They also offer "WV Dogs," which include chili, slaw, mustard and you can get onions from the condiment bar in the concourse.
Part of the local events include a pepperoni roll race. How cool is that?
