Going Irish with the Stingers (w/ Photos)

We dropped by Bill Taunton Stadium, home of the summer collegiate Willmar (MN) Stingers (Northwoods League), to check out Summertime St. Patty’s Night on Saturday.  The Stingers did a nice job going Irish with a pint glass giveaway, green beer, Irish music, green shirts and caps for the team, and post-game fireworks.

Oh, and the Stingers defeated the Alexandria (MN) Beetles 3-1.  Reported attendance was 931, which appeared to be right on the mark.

You might also be interested to know (or maybe not) that we took in the Smurf’s matinee movie at the local movie theater before the game.  When we talk about entertainment value, here is a little comparison:

                                       Movie          Stingers

Ticket                          $7.50          $6.00 (grandstand)
Bottled Water          $3.90          $2.50
Beer                              None           $3.00 (green)
Food                            Always cheaper and more variety at the ballpark
Time                            1.5 hours    3 hours
