Last weekend my 7 year old and I discovered our new favorite Charlotte spring time activity…UNCC baseball. Have you ever been to a game? It’s so much fun. The facility is so nice, there are snacks (key for the 7 year old), the tickets are crazy affordable, and it’s a great way to spend a weekday evening or weekend afternoon. They have 4 home games this week…check one (or more) out.
