Make it a group date by inviting some friends to join in on the fun. You may even be able to play matchmaker! Or if you want to keep it in the family, ask your guy’s siblings or parents to join you. This will give you a chance to get closer to his loved ones in a social, relaxed setting. Either way, it’s a great time to make some memories.

Instead of taking a trip to your major league team’s stadium, stay local. Find a sports bar near you where you can watch the game and have a few wings. As long as you’re both into the game and enjoying your time like the rest of the baseball fanatics, you are sure to have almost as much fun as actually being there. You can also wear your favorite jersey or your team’s color to really get in the mood.

If you are not into the bar scene, take your date to check out a local county or high school baseball game. Most cities have baseball teams that play open games on the weekends. Be sure to bring snacks (boiled peanuts and Cracker Jacks are two winners!) and wear your favorite baseball attire.

While there, see how you can get involved. Maybe they have a co-ed team that you could join! Athletic skills are one of the many ways couples can connect. It’s also a great way to meet friends and possibly find a new baseball-loving crew. Doing something that you both love is essential to a strong relationship, and when you keep it light-hearted, you’re sure to have a great date!
