Baseball diamond, that is.
The Arkansas Naturals, the Kansas City Royals' AA affiliate, play right here in our backyard at Arvest Ballpark. You can't beat minor league ball: $10 tickets, $3 parking, and $1 cokes on opening night. The young men play with energy and enthusiasm, the mascots happily take picture after picture, and the mid-inning entertainment is non-stop.

Fleece jackets, fleece mittens, and fleece headgear don't normally signal opening day, but it's been a cold spring so far. At least it wasn't raining.
We only made it through a few innings - it is a school night, after all - but the Naturals are just another great thing about living in NW Arkansas.
