Baseball stadium being offered up on Airbnb for first time ever (New York Post)

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.
