Best Of 2023

There’s plenty of good baseball to be had throughout Greater Cincinnati at every level (including that famous big-league team). But sometimes fans want a little bit of quirk with their batting lineups. Quirk abounds at Thomas More Stadium, where the Florence Y’alls play fiery baseball with a hunger that many MLB folks haven’t seen since being drafted. The Y’alls have plenty of game, but as with their Frontier League opponents, Florence’s independent team also cranks up the entertainment value for the fans sitting in the stadium’s 4,500 seats (all of them are close to the action, by the way). There are wacky theme nights, bouncy inflatables and appearances by Y’all Star, the mascot who is, of all things, a water tower. Moreover, ticket prices are more affordable than what you might find elsewhere, so it’s easy to take in a game (or several) with a group.
