Kicker – Ballpark for rent


NICK EICHER, HOST: Maybe you’ve been cooped up lately and could use a change of scenery.

Here’s an idea: rent your own pro baseball stadium! Players aren’t using it.

Seriously. Just head over to Airbnb and you will find the Pensacola Blue Wahoos Stadium is on the rental market.

The deal includes access to the team clubhouse, the field, batting cages, and other amenities for sleeping over.

Now it’s $1,500 a night but it does sleep 10.

And for an additional charge, you can receive instruction from a former big league ballplayer or even have your own fireworks show!

Now we checked this out. And the bad news is there is a waiting list and, sorry to say if this interested you, it’s 100 reservations deep.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
