Dayton – August 2011 – Minor League Baseball

The Dayton Dragons are a minor league baseball team playing in the Midwest League. They are extremely popular, having once told out over 800 straight games.

Their stadium, one of two in Ohio called Fifth Third Field, is located at the edge of downtown Dayton. Nearby are a number of bars and restaurants, which provided us a dinner option before the game.

As with most minor league sports, the entertainment during the breaks was as good as the game.

The play, while a low minor league, was not bad.
