Default First trip to Founder's Park

Hey guys it's me again in Columbia for a few days and with the wife and 4 year old boy in tow I thought it would be special for us to go to our first Gamecock Baseball game together Saturday. Just wondering if there might be some things we should do or not do when going to a weekend baseball game tips for parking etc... Didn't think a baseball game would be sold out or anything this weekend so planning to just buy at the park Saturday do you think that will be ok? If so is there a better section to sit in like near where cocky cheers periodically we all love us some cocky. Anything you can offer info wise will be greatly appreciated thanks.

1) Park at the stadium. We've used the shuttle and it is OK but I definitely prefer to park at the stadium.

2) Check with the Parking Attendants, as they may have Tickets.
As we were paying, the guy asked if we had tickets. He had "Regulars" that would leave their tickets with him, if they weren't going to be there.

3) DO NOT pay more than face value for the tickets.
Went to one game that was a "Sell Out". Guy tried to sell me tickets on the corner but wanted an $15-$20 for the 3 tickets. I walked away and they had good tickets available at the window.

4) Cocky will move around so go to him and take a lot pictures.
5) Enjoy the experience, regardless of the game results.
You will be setting the tone for the 4 year olds future trips.

The parking right by the field is $10, and you can't beat the convenience. Wander around on the concourse and you will find Cocky. There is a playground if your child gets a little restless. Also, I love the hot dogs at one of the carts, but I can't remember the name right now, so that is of no help. Have fun. It's a great family outing.

Nothing really to do with parking, but if it's a day game don't forget sunscreen! (Especially for the kid). I have brought it with me to reapply inside the park and still was a little pink the next day. That was with seats in the outfield, though, so your mileage may vary.

Hey everyone first time signing in since last Saturday can't believe it's been a week already.

Thank you all so much for all of your tips and suggestions. We did park right in the stadium lot for $10. We only sat in our seats for the 1st 3 innings as the one poster mentioned my boy discovered the playground and we never returned to our seats but still saw a good bit of the game my wife and I took turns watching him play. As for food at the park we ate some half hotdog half burger grilled thing that came from the grill by the fence on your left as you approach the 1st base side seats it was pretty good. Got several great pictures with cocky and the trophies and my boy already wants to go back. We lost the game that day but it didn't matter we had a good time and added this to our trip since we had to be in Cola for Friday Morning.

Went to Riverbanks, Cromers Pnuts, Ate at Docs BBQ and mellow mushroom in the vista etc..... Hadn't stayed in the Vista before but will definitely be doing that again it's a great place.
