Last Friday night, I thought my daughter was going to die. While a bold and dramatic statement, it is also, unfortunately, the truth. But the night had begun with a drastically different tone.
Our family decided to attend a Charlotte Knights game on Friday night. It was a holiday weekend, fireworks Friday, and because we have already booked up our summer schedule with trips to other minor league ballparks across the state, it was also one of our only weekends to catch our local minor league team in action.
We arrived at the stadium early, one of the first to enter the gates at 6:00. Just moments after entering the ballpark, as we are standing around taking in the gorgeous view of the Charlotte city skyline above the field, we were approached by a stadium employee with a special request.

Ballpark Adventures returns to the action this weekend. We are heading to BB&T BallPark in Winston Salem, NC. While originally not on our 2018 wish list, we discovered the Winston Salem area is much closer to home than we thought. The Winston Salem Dash is the Advanced A (Carolina League) affiliate of the White Sox. Before a trip like this, we do some research to be prepared and raise our anticipation.
