Professional baseball isn’t just for the biggest cities in America anymore! In Des Moines, you can get a taste of the big leagues without leaving the state! This spring, make a trip to Principal Park for a AAA baseball experience that’s family-friendly and features both former and soon-to-be big league talent, making for a competitive game that everyone in the family can enjoy. Opening day is less than a month away!


The Iowa Cubs have been a Cubs affiliate since the 1980s, and in recent years, players like Kris Bryant and Addison Russell have been regulars in the Iowa lineup. Sometimes taking in a major league game can be expensive and time consuming, and it may prove to be too much for your youngest baseball enthusiasts. But in an environment that welcomes children, and offers exciting activates, special events, and unique programming, all members of the family will feel included.

After a season like the Cubs had last year, you’ll want to make a visit to see what else this organization has in store.  Play ball!
