The Sioux City Explorers, an American Association independent league team, play at Lewis and Clark Park which opened in 1993. It has a seating capacity of 3,630. We have been trying to stop and see a game since 2004, but each time as we have passed through Sioux City the team has been out of town. This year I forgot to check before leaving home, but on arrival at our hotel I called the stadium and found that they were playing. So, off to the game. The Explorers were playing the Wichita Wingnuts and were unsuccessful loosing 2-1. The winning run was scored on a wide pitch. The box score was Wingnuts R-2, H-6, E-0 and Explorers R-1, H-6, E-0. The field lines are RF & LF-330' and CF-400'. Slider, a dog, is the mascot. The Eagles Little League team went on the field with the Explorers players for the national anthem. A between inning activity was the Kool Aid Fill. Two girls had to fill three glasses with water. The handicapping feature was that the pouring pitchers had many holes in the side. Beyond the centerfield and left field fences is located the local Soapbox Derby hill.
