The $1 tix for kids, are these only upper level? Or, is it equivalent to the parents tix?

Also, is there a minimum age for kids running the bases? I'm worried my kids would take off for the outfield.

No offense to parents but I hate going to Sunday Kids Day Games. Kids always in front of me standing on the seat and screaming at mom and/or dad everytime the vendors walk by. Need to go to the bathroom every inning.

Unfortunatley, Sat or Sun games are the only ones I get to go to sometimes.

I can only answer the first question: Any unsold seat in the house.

I don't have an answer for you on the ticket price, but they kinda tell you your kids need to be like ages 3 and up, or 4 and up or something like that. But they don't exactly card the kids as they enter the field. It's pretty controlled and the ushers make sure the kids don't take the detour through the outfield.

I took my nephew once, and the only condition is that the kid's price ticket is for a seat directly adjacent to the full-price seat you use for yourself. So no, you can't "accidentally" lose your kid at The Cell. (Besides, we all know about the woman who lost her nine kids at Wrigley Field. They're beating the Cubs 8-0 in the 7th.

It was a good deal, my nephew enjoyed it, although the line for kids to run the bases after the game was so long that he took one look at it, and decided it wasn't worth waiting. Just to warn you about that possibility.

And I have to comment about the person who doesn't like kids acting like kids, even when they're in the stadium. They're kids! It would be nice if they would behave like little angels, but it won't happen. I'm not the most kid-friendly person around, but if you can't take the Sunday crowds, go to Saturday night games.

Maybe they should have a Sunday Grumpy People Day.

We lost 7 of 9 to Detroit, Tampa and Cleve in June, right? I see they found their way South after beating the Cubs.

So they dont allow parents to run with their kids? Even if the kids are pretty young?

What about the pre game autographs? Can you escort kids?

Last question. If the kid sits on your laps do you need to buy him a ticket? Its there an age limit where the child needs a ticket?

I believe kids need to be 5+ to run the bases (which I assume means they need to be able to run by themselves).

If the kid can sit on your lap you are good to go. They are pretty easy going about letting little kids in without tickets.

The first question I'm not sure about. My daughters did it this year and they are 5 & 6 so I didn't have to go down with them. Although the commercial I see on TV all the time shows a woman holding an infant in her arms and running the bases with the kids.

As far as the autographs, you can walk down the aisle with your kid(s) but the ushers tell you to stay a couple of rows back while the kids go down and get the autographs. I was still within 7 feet of the players and was able to tell my daughters the names of the guys standing there.
