The Indianapolis Indians, Triple A minor league team, will be playing the Toledo Mud Hens at Victory Field on May 11, 2012. This is the oldest minor league rivalry in America. We’re planning a special event at the game in the Coors Light picnic area in right field. Indy Aquatic Masters will host a buffet with beer and wine included (5:30– 7:00 p.m.), reserved seats for the game, and fireworks after the game for $30. Limited tickets will be available during online entry. Victory Field is within walking distance of the IU Natatorium and our headquarters hotels. It’s a great setting for catching up with your friends even if you don’t like baseball.
