With the Nationals mired in a terrible 2019 season so far, we just want to remind you to come out this summer to support our local Alexandria Aces baseball team which begins play Tuesday, June 4 against the D.C. Grays. The Aces play at Frank Mann Stadium located @ 3798 Commonwealth Ave in Alexandria from early June to August (where the minor league Alexandria Dukes also played). You never know who might show up (e.g. when Cal Ripken showed up for a game).
The Aces are part of the Cal Ripken, Sr. Collegiate Baseball League (CBL) and offer highly competitive games at an affordable price with most tickets priced at $5 for adults and $3 for kids. You get decent baseball for a quarter of the price it costs to go to a Nationals or Orioles game. You can’t beat that. The players aren’t quite at the minor league level, but the level of play is REALLY good.
You can find the Aces 2019 schedule at this link. Their first home game is Tuesday, June 4 @ 7:00 PM.
See the video from 2009 above and see you at the park!
