Northwest Arkansas Naturals Ballpark Preview

In the second of four full-season previews, Nicholas Ian Allen, formerly the Assistant General Manager of the Helena Brewers, offers insight, tips and tricks to make the most out of your experience when visiting a Minor League ballpark.

  • $13 Super Premium

Receive a $1 discount on each level by purchasing in advance

The Naturals offer a wider range of tickets discounts than the Triple-A club, including buy-one-get-one offers for customers of two local sponsors on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Additionally, on Wednesday the club will give a free ticket to all fans if the Naturals win.

For the Kids: 

  • Parents can take advantage of the Kids Eat Free promotion on Sundays, and receive a hot dog, chips and soda. There will also be special kids-themes promotions on Sundays.
  • The kid’s club offers a free option (which includes free ticket to five selected games) and well as a paid “MVK” membership, which offers free entry to all Sunday home games and a t-shirt.

Best Bets:

  • By all indications, the staff in Northwest Arkansas is one of the best in professional baseball. The club has won national awards for the organization as a whole, and features a beautiful ballpark. The Naturals are also one of the most community minded teams in baseball and offer a wide range of programs that provide fundraising opportunities for charity as well as honor and recognition for members of the military.
  • Again, concessions are where most Minor League teams really make their money. Therefore, fans should take advantage of nights that offer food and/or drink discounts. The Naturals offer daily specials on Thursdays, which give discounts on beer and soda (of course) as well as $1 peanuts and mozzarella sticks. Mondays offer $1 hot dogs, and kid’s receive a free meal on Sundays (hot dog, chips and soda).
  • The Naturals are more involved in themed promotions that many other teams. Among the special nights this season are Star Wars Night (5/3), Thunder Chickens Night (6/6), Christmas in July (7/24), and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Night (7/25) to name a few. The club will also offer a selection of giveaway nights including a t-shirt, rubber ducky and Wil Myers bobblehead.
  • Get an exclusive tour of Averest Ballpark Monday-Friday, year round. Call ahead to schedule and bring a group of up to 100.
