The Burlington Bees, a Single A affiliate of Kansas City, play at Community Field which was built in 1947. The seating for 3,200 was upgraded 4 years ago and work has been done on the field which is in excellent condition. The main seating area goes from the end of one dugout to the other. There is a free-standing bleacher section at the far end of the third base dugout and a concession stand beyond that with seating on the roof. There is a party deck down the first base line. There is a very large amount of foul territory. The Bees played the Beloit Snappers and the teams were evenly matched. The score went back and forth during the game and it was tied in the middle of the ninth inning. Then a Bee hit a walk-off home run with one runner on and the Bees won 7-5. The box score was Snappers R-5, H-13, E-0 and Bees R-7, H-10, E-2. The field lines are RF-318', RC-365', CF-403', LC-375', & LF-338'. Not many between inning activities. Attendance was 788. Food and drinks were inexpensive and looked good. There is a special price for food/ beverage or tickets every day of the week. Nice scoreboard with red numbers. Going to the game with us tonight were Andrea's sister, Marcia, and brother-in-law, Tom.
