Whether you're an East Tennessee resident or visiting the Smokies from several states away, you might be inclined to agree that there are few better ways to spend a summer night than to take in a baseball game. And we're not talking about watching one on TV either. Fortunately, we have a great place right here in the mountains where baseball fans of all ages can watch live, professional minor league action all summer long.
Smokies Park, located just off Interstate 40 at Exit 407, is the home of the Tennessee Smokies, a AA minor league affiliate of the Chicago Cubs. The Smokies have called Sevierville home since 2000, and ever since then, fans have been traveling from near and far to catch many of the 40 home games each season.
In recent history, the Smokies have been successful in Southern League play and have provided great minor-league training for many players who have since gone on to be standouts in the major leagues.
In addition to great baseball action, fans are able to enjoy nightly promotions during home games. Special promotions and giveaways include $1 drink specials, Fireworks Fridays, discounted admissions and merchandise giveaways.
The facility itself features a giant color scoreboard with video screen, gift shop, concession stands, kids' play area and a full-service restaurant facility that will soon be occupied by a Calhoun's.
Upcoming home series include games against Jacksonville July 10 through 14 and Mississippi the 21st through the 25th.
And don't forget about the other great summertime outdoor activity-ziplining. If you're looking for the area's longest, farthest and fastest ziplines, Pigeon Forge, TN is where you'll find us at Smoky Mountain Ziplines.
