I’m planning a bachelorette/bridal party for my friend and we will be going to see a baseball game. Do you think the Stadium will let me in with a bag of favors? Also, anyone have any good suggestions for favors or even items that I can put in a favor bag that somewhat baseball related? Thanks!

Gourmet flavored popcorn, ballcaps, hmmmm- how about popcorn flavored jelly bellys? I’m trying to think of other girlie baseball stuff. Kiehls Sunscreen? Or a summer-ey scented body spray (not really baseball but I think summer and baseball go hand in hand)

Most stadiums will let you bring stuff in, including your own food and drinks (non-alcoholic), but it varies from stadium to stadium. If you go to the team’s website and click on stadium info or faqs, it should have the regulations and restictions listed. They normally impose a maximum bag size too.
Baseball related items: cracker jacks (!), peanuts, big league chewing gum (the kind that comes in a pouch), baseball cards of the hot players on the team, wrist bands (if you want to get funky)…it’s hard trying to think of non-food baseball related items!
Which team are you going to root for and at what stadium? That might help us in giving suggestions. I’m a huge baseball fan (go Phils!), so I’m totally into your party!

What about a Bachelorette themed "scorecard" you know, similar to the ones the hardcore fans fill out – only your scores could be how hot they are or something along those lines, and you could totally personalize it.
One of the big poster signs that you always see on TV that says why you’re there is a must!
You could do just about anything in the favor bags, just try to keep it to your teams colors –

Thanks guys for the suggestions. I guess I’ll have to spend some time trying to find places that sell those items cheap. Everything would add up really quickly!
I am in LA so the team is Dodgers so the colors would have to be blue and white.

Oriental Trading has a bunch of baseball stuff for cheap:
The second page in the search has baseball drawstring tote bags for $9.95/dozen. You could personalize them with the bride’s name or something. On the bottom of page 5 there are blue baseball wristbands. You could personalize those too, although they probably wouldn’t make for great tan lines….

also check the website for restrictions on signs and stuff. depending on the team or what’s on the sign they might not let it in. i worked for a baseball team and i don’t think we allowed some signs in because they had the potential to obstruct views.
you can find most of the stuff at costco or sam’s club for cheap in bulk!

How about making baseball shirts (you can buy the 3/4 length shirts at Michael’s for pretty cheap) and doing iron transfer names on the back? I love the idea of Cracker Jacks and popcorn. Some stadiums might let you put a quick announcement in too (you might be able to call the general number and get them to annouce your friend!). How about penants with your friend’s name on them (those triangle ones).
