Best Baseball on a Budget

Lake County Captains

Tribe games are fun and all, but if you don't feel like taking out a second mortgage to pay for tickets and beers, try a night in Eastlake. The Indians' Class-A farm team, the Lake County Captains, features baby-faced players earning paltry salaries and scratching to make it to the majors. Even if the baseball isn't the best, the entertainment is. There are fireworks every Friday and boatloads of giveaways - bobblehead dolls, baseball bats, etc. - every weekend. And it's dirt-cheap. Tickets range from $5 to $8. A hot dog and a 21-ounce beer will run seven bucks even. At these prices, it's a steal.
