Games during the Eclipse

At the risk of the internet exploding in the United States with Solar Eclipse stuff, there is a stadium aspect to this as many teams in cities along the path of full totality are planning some pretty cool events that coincide with a game. I’m sure most have their plans already set, but for those flexible, consider a trip to one of these ballparks while watching a pretty incredible spectacle:

.
Salem, Oregon  –  Volcanoes Stadium  –  Game Time: 9:35 AM  –  Totality: 10:17 AM

…..
I’ve been to this ballpark and while it is not a great one, they do have a nice event plan for the morning. Also, the capital of Oregon is a cool place to visit. 
.

Lincoln, Nebraska  –  Haymarket Park  –  Game Time: 12:00 PM  –  Totality: 1:02 PM
…..
Free glasses to the first 3,500! Perfect for the procrastinators
.

Nashville, Tennessee  –  First Tennessee Park  –  Game Time: 4:00 PM  –  Totality: 1:27 PM
…..
This is the one I recommend the most. Awesome city, new ballpark and events that include a concert and kids activities during the viewing party
.

Greenville, South Carolina  –  Fluor Field  –  Game Time: 1:05 PM  –  Totality: 2:38 PM
…..
The Palmetto State will see a huge influx of visitors from the East Coast and luck is on their side in the sports world with three different options. Underrated Upstate is a fine place to attend and people will be surprised at how nice Greenville’s downtown is.
.

Columbia, South Carolina  –  Spirit Communications Park  –  Game Time: 1:05 PM  –  Totality: 2:41 PM
…..
Similar to Nashville, ballpark travelers can add this relatively new one to the list while visiting the capital
.

Charleston, South Carolina  –  Riley Park  –  Game Time: 4:05 PM  –  Totality: 2:46 PM
…..
The only one in South Carolina that won’t have the eclipse during the game, but Lowcountry is arguably the best destination for tourists.
