LaGrave Field has two restaurants on site, Smokey's BBQ and Grease Monkey; along with an extensive concessions menu including Nathan's Hot Dogs, Johnsonville Brats, fresh hamburgers and fries, and you can’t forget ballpark favorites such as cracker jacks, peanuts, and candy. Plenty of fountain drinks are available as well as beer, wine and margaritas sold in the plaza bar area so come on out because there is something for everyone!
The Fort Worth Cats were once affiliated with both the Brooklyn and LA Dodgers, and today, they are a corner stone of professional independent baseball. Dodger has been the official Cats' mascot since 2002. His name pays tribute to the Cats' affiliation with the Brooklyn Dodgers of the 1940s and 1950s when many future Brooklyn stars played in Fort Worth on their way to the major leagues. In addition to his performances at LaGrave Field, Dodger also makes many appearances throughout the community all year long. This popular mascot has been recognized as one of the premier mascots in all of professional sports. Dodger entertains fans of all ages with his crazy antics and wild dance moves. Dodger will be sure to make this family-fun Saturday one to remember.
Don’t miss out! Come out to the ballgame this Saturday, June 14, to take part in an exciting evening where you will enjoy a fun night of baseball while being part of a great cause.
