They’re every dog’s favorite words. And what could be better than enjoying a dog friendly baseball game with your best friend? With the scent hotdogs and popcorn in the air, it’s basically a dog’s dream come true!
Whether you’re catching a home game or following your favorite team on the road, below you’ll find Major League Baseball’s schedule of dog friendly baseball games for 2020.
Taking Your Dog to the Ballpark
Each year major and minor league ballparks across the country add more “Bark in the Park” and “Dog Days” to their schedules. During these special events, the stadiums usually reserve a section of the stands for people and their pets and a portion of the ticket sales usually benefits local shelters and rescues. So, attending a dog friendly baseball game is a fantastic opportunity to make memories with your pup and help your community. It’s a win-win!
Each team sets its own requirements for proof of vaccinations, weight limits, waivers, and what’s included in the ticket price. Be sure to visit their website or call the ticket office to confirm the details before purchasing your tickets.
