Road Trip Guide: Myrtle Beach, South Carolina: Part 1- Myrtle Beach Pelicans
Looking for some fun family entertainment down south? Love the Long Island Ducks? Then you will certainly enjoy a night out watching the Myrtle Beach Pelicans!!
The Myrtle Beach Pelicans are a minor league baseball team located in the BB & T Coastal Field (Myrtle Beach, South Carolina). They are the Class A Advanced farm team for the Texas Rangers. The Ballpark has been open since 1999 and seats up to 6,600 fans each night, when filled to capacity. Much like the ballpark for the Long Island Ducks, there isn’t a bad seat in the house. BB & T Coastal Field was rated the #2 Class A level ballpark in the United States.
Tickets start at $11 for a reserved box seat and $13 for field box seats. There is a beach area which is located down the left field line. The beach can accommodate up to 120 for a private company party, family reunion or any other occasion. Sit under the palm trees and sip a beverage from your private bar while watching a field level view of the game. There is a picnic area for groups of up to 300, which includes an all you can eat buffet of hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken quarters, cole slaw, beverages and snacks. There are also luxury suite rentals, which include 4 parking passes in the VIP lot, catering services throughout the game (food and beverages at an additional cost), your name in lights on the scoreboard and announced over the loud speaker, guaranteed promotional giveaways in your suite, air conditioning, indoor/outdoor seating, plasma TV and much more. A rental fee is required. And finally, all you can eat seats, which are just behind the right field wall. For $25 you get a menu of hamburgers, hot dogs, french fries, nachos, popcorn and soda. We had the pleasure of sitting five rows up right behind home plate!!!
The food and drinks are reasonable priced and taste pretty good. There is concession stands conveniently located on the main floor, as well as vendors walking throughout the park. They have something for everyone ranging from popcorn to nachos to hot
dogs. The night we were there each child was given a voucher for a free hotdog, beverage and bag of chips!!
There are all kinds of fun contests going on throughout the game, as well as promotional nights. They even have a dog named Deuce, who brings out a bucket of balls to the umpire at the start of the game. Players are on hand to sign autographs after
There is no parking fee and gates open one hour before game time.
Overall, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans was a fun family experience that every baseball fan should take advantage of while visiting Myrtle Beach.
