Nothing says summer quite like going to a baseball game. In Grand Junction, you’ll find your fix of hot dogs, Cracker Jack and rooting for the home team at Suplizio Field, where the Grand Junction Jackalopes play from mid-June through mid-September.
As a minor league affiliate for the Colorado Rockies, you’ll see plenty of future major league stars take the field in Grand Junction. Current prospects seem likely to represent the next generation of stars to play at Coors Field someday.
With home games throughout the summer, be sure to keep an eye on the promotional schedule. Home games often include t-shirt or bobblehead giveaways, discount hot dogs and other treats. Don't miss Firework Fridays throughout the season. Every home game on a Friday concludes with a fireworks show at the field! Every Sunday home game is Military Day — Active or retired Armed Service members get a special $5 ticket with proper ID.
Going to a Grand Junction Jackalopes game makes a great, affordable family outing. Tickets to a Jackalopes baseball game are only $9 and concessions are very reasonably priced compared to other parks, so you can bring friends and family without breaking the bank. For families with children, don't miss the Comfort Dental Kids Zone, which is home to free inflatable bounce fun for kids. Suplizio Field is located in Lincoln Park, which has picnic and grill areas, a public swimming pool, golf course and more. It’s the perfect destination for a full day of summertime family fun: Start with some pool time and then head over to a Jackalopes game in the evening.
The Jackalopes moved to Grand Junction from Casper, Wyoming in 2012, making Colorado’s Wine Country a hub for baseball. In addition to the minor league team, the city also hosts the JUCO World Series each year, too.
You can find a full schedule of home games, plus more information about the team and players on the Grand Junction Jackalopes’ website.
