Baseball Fans at Lake Prince Woods

May 12, 2016

Journalist, Ira Boudway of Bloomberg, shares that Major League Baseball has the oldest fans of the four major U.S. professional sports. During the World Series last fall, according to

data gathered by Sports Media Watch, roughly half of TV viewers were 55 or older—and only 6 percent were under the age of 18. For the whole of last season, the median age for viewers of nationally telecast baseball games on Fox, ESPN, TBS, and the MLB Network was more than 54 years old.

At Lake Prince Woods, going to a Norfolk Tides Baseball game at Harbor Park is as special as iced cold sweet tea on a hot summer day.  Last season, Lake Prince Woods shared a Grant a Dream experience with Mr. Stan Johnson, an avid baseball fan. Mr. Johnson who always watched baseball on television was gifted a trip to see the Norfolk Tides team in action.  It was a delightful sunny day with great seats, a hot dog, peanuts and cracker jacks!  Great memories still today for Mr. Johnson.

Lake Prince Woods will be hitting Harbor Park for a game today with a bus full of residents.  Join us for great camaraderie and friendship and maybe a cracker jack or two!
