We never fail to have fun at the Crabs games. The young players seem to be having a blast and that makes it fun for fans. They even autographed a baseball for our son to give his Little League playing boy! Fun food, clean stadium,...More

Crabs baseball is the way I imagine baseball was in the old days. Close up with friends, neighbors and community. What a treat and a special part of life in Humboldt.

Nothing like it to experience local flavor then going to a community game. Local band, local rooting for the home team and favorite stadium eats, too fun! Come before the 2nd week in August as they close for the season

The old smells, the hot dogs and beer, the cheering locals, and the out-of-tune band! Baseball like it used to be before it became a profit machine for untouchable non-hero prima donna players. The semi-pro Crabs play their hearts out because they love it, and...More

All seats are close to see all the action. Lots of community spirit. Great food for reasonable price (unlike SF Giants ) and local beers served by friendly staff. Put a tip in the jar at the concession stand and get a “Tip, Tip Hooray...More

I've been going to Humboldt Crabs games 2-3 times a year for the past 30 years. This past summer we went twice with my son's Cub Scout Pack and had a great time as always. This is a summer collegiate league and the Crabs are...More
