One minor league team is thinking outside of the box to make money during the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The Pensacola Blue Wahoos, the Twins’ Double-A affiliate, are offering up their stadium in Pensacola, Fla. on Airbnb. For $1,500 (plus fees) a night in which a group of up to 10 people can have their run of the Blue Wahoos Stadium. According to the team, this is the first time a baseball stadium has ever been put up for a rental service.
If purchased, fans will get access to the stadium and all of its amenities, such as the clubhouse, batting cage, field and batting practice setup. There is a bedroom next to the clubhouse that can fit 10.
“Guests are welcome to hit from home plate, play catch in the outfield, run the bases, enjoy a picnic in the outfield, or find other creative uses for the field!” reads the listing.
The team has been busy trying to make money without a minor league season. It has hosted a nine-hole disc golf course on the weekend and there will be a movie and fireworks night coming up.
