Myrtle Beach Pelicans Baseball

myrtle beach pelicansDuring the summertime on the South Carolina coast, the hot ticket for baseball fans is the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, the Chicago Cubs’ Class A affiliate. Nothing brings families and groups together quick like a good, old-fashioned baseball game under the bright lights. And you won’t find a more fun and entertaining environment for a minor league baseball game than TicketReturn.com Field at Pelicans Ballpark. The Myrtle Beach Pelicans’ regular season ends in early September, so there’s still plenty of time to score tickets during your well-deserved getaway to Sands Resorts, one of the top-rated water park resorts in the state.

TicketReturn.com Field at Pelicans Ballpark

One of the main reasons that the Myrtle Beach Pelicans are popular among locals and vacationers alike is that TicketReturn.com Field is right across the street from Broadway at the Beach, a sprawling outdoor entertainment, shopping, and dining center. Baseball fans can spend their mornings on sandy Myrtle Beach and afternoons at Broadway at the Beach before slipping over to Pelicans Ballpark for hot dogs, $2 beer, and towering home runs! Two unique features at Pelicans Ballpark are the tall water tower behind the grandstand and the extra large trees in right field, creating a small-town feel despite being so close to all the action!

Promotions

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans’ weekly promotions are out of this world, ranging from $1 Budweisers on “Thirsty Thursday” to free Saturday fireworks. Despite offering adults a wide variety of beer and wine discounts, Pelicans ballpark maintains a family-friendly atmosphere that kids can enjoy just as much as mom and dad. Here’s a quick rundown of their weekly promotions:

  • Monday: 1/2 price admission with a donated item off this list
  • Tuesday: $2 tacos and tallboys from 6-8 p.m.
  • Wednesday: BOGO Hebrew National hot dogs on “Weiner Wednesday”
  • Thursday: $1 Budweiser and Bud Light drafts, $2 cans, and $2 glasses of wine from Duplin Winery on “Thirsty Thursday”

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans

Minor league baseball teams change affiliations quite often, but the Myrtle Beach Pelicans have been the Chicago Cubs’ Class A affiliate since 2015. Our beloved Pelicans were also an affiliate of the Texas Rangers and Atlanta Braves dating back to 1999. Thirteen former Pelicans have gone onto become MLB all-stars, including Freddie Freeman, Elvis Andrus, Jason Heyward, Craig Kimbrel, Brian McCann, and Adam Wainright. As of early June, catcher Miguel Amaya, shortstop Aramis Ademan, and starting pitcher Alex Lange are the top-rated prospects currently playing with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans.

Myrtle Beach Getaway: 5 Reasons to Visit the Horry County Fair

Myrtle Beach resortsFamilies are always looking for some late-afternoon or evening family-friendly fun while vacationing here in beautiful Myrtle Beach. While we encourage our guests to spend as much time as possible at the free Sands Resort Waterpark and our pristine white sand beaches, the entire family will undoubtedly have the time of their lives at the annual Horry County Fair.

For just $25 per person, you can hop aboard as many rides as your heart desires. The Ferris Wheel is a popular ride after dark as the fairgrounds become a beautiful meld of bright colors and flashing lights with the heartwarming sounds of laughter. The “Cliffhanger” was a crowd-favorite ride last year, as well as the Sky Flyer, Zero Gravity, and Musik Express.

2. Pig Races – The Horry County Fair is becoming known for their exciting and amusing pig races. These intelligent and highly-sociable pigs aren’t your average hogs. The nail-biting races are often one of the main highlights for youngsters and adults alike.

3. The Food – It’s nearly impossible to visit any type of fair without trying at least one rare delicacy. Word of mouth usually spreads around the fairgrounds about which unique concoctions are worth a try. The red velvet funnel cake and fried Oreos were hits last year, but you’ll always be able to find homemade corn dogs, loaded fries, tasty cotton candy, and an abundance of wild creations.

4. Character Meet and Greets – There aren’t many things that could pull your kids away from our kid-friendly Myrtle Beach resorts, but the opportunity to meet a beloved television character is one. Pose for photos with Darth Vader, the Paw Patrol, Olaf Snowman, and Mickey Mouse in-between carnival rides!

5. Petting Zoo – The petting zoo at the Horry County Fair gets bigger and better each year. The baby goats are always a hit for the kids, as are the massive camels. You’ll also be able to meet friendly pigs, large cattle, and even a small colony of dogs from the Grand Strand Humane Society who are in need of a home.

The patties lie between two fried egg and cheese sandwiches—this is not a joke. The burger also arrives with giant fried onion rings. You’ll need a partner to help you finish this behemoth. The nacho crunch burger, topped with Doritos, and the fried mac & cheese burger are fun and delicious.
