Take me out to the ole ball game in Cow Town

Located around the outer concourse of Huntington Park is a nice display of both Clipper greats and baseball history. Each position is highlighted along with the development of the game’s equipment. Take the time to stroll around and learn about the rich history of baseball in Columbus and the people that played there.
One tradition-cow bells- followed the Clippers from Cooper Stadium their old summer home. Cow Town is a not so endearing nick name for Columbus so for years Clippers fans have brought cow bells to the games and ring them often. Tonight wasn’t any different.

Columbus is a great town so plan on making it a multiple day trip. I stayed in the Arena District and walked over to the game. After the game we strolled over to an Irish pub for refreshments and live music.

Tomorrow’s itinerary may include a visit to Ohio’s State House, the Ohio History Center & Ohio Village or COSI. There’s plenty to see and do. For sightseeing ideas contact your travel agent or the Experience Columbus visitor information office at 866-EXP-COLS .

Happy travels!
