With 162 games played by every team in less than six months, Major League Baseball gives fans at each park 81 reasons to take in America’s favorite pastime throughout the summer. But with so many games, it’s understandable that sometimes teams would want to shake things up a bit. Enter theme nights. Even if you don’t bleed baseball, you might find a theme game that will convince you to spend a few hours at the ballpark.
