Field Trip: Jackson Generals 2017 Education Days {Jackson}

{This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, read my disclosure policy.}


Are you ready for summer? Okay, how about spring? One day I will learn to appreciate all of the seasons, even the cold ones. Baseball season is right around the corner after basketball, volleyball and…well, baseball is coming and Homeschool Roster is going to the Jackson Generals 2017 Education Days. You do not have to be a fan of baseball to enjoy these education days. There is something all-American about sitting in the stands watching a baseball ball game. I love the community and you can go and support the home team, the Jackson Generals. It’s about as big league as you are going to get in West Tennessee. Along with the game, students will enjoy Schoolin with Sarge, the Jackson K-9 unit and an Air-Evac helicopter. You may attend one, two or all of the games for a fun day at the park. Remember to wear sunscreen.

Note: No outside food or drinks are allowed in the ballpark. There is an option to purchase a lunch pack for $6 that includes a hotdog, chips and a drink. The concession stands will be open, but the lunch pack is the best deal for your time (there are very, very, very long concession lines) and money. You will have in/out privileges if you prefer to bring your own lunch and eat it in your car or outside of the stadium.
