A few months ago, as noted in this ifollosports.com story, I saw a minor league baseball game at AutoZone Park in Memphis, Tennessee. It was a good experience, so a few days later, as I was traveling through Mississippi, I decided to see another minor league baseball game. This time it was at Trustmark Park in the Jackson suburb of Pearl, Mississippi. Trustmark Park is home to the Atlanta Braves class AA affiliate, the Mississippi Braves of the Southern League.
The Braves were playing fellow Southern League team, the Jacksonville Suns, who are the Florida Marlins class AA affiliate. It was interesting to learn that current well known Atlanta Braves players Jason Heyward and Brian McCann once played in Jackson.
Trustmark Park is a nice, modern stadium that offers free parking for fans. The stadium is very wide open and easy to get around, as it seats about 5,500 people. There is not a bad seat in the house, as I sat along the third base line and behind home plate.
I attended a day game, so the atmosphere reminded me of going to a spring training game. The stadium had no seats in the outfield, so a lot of people were lying on the grass soaking in the sun. The team mascot “Trusty” kept people entertained throughout. Truthfully, it seemed like fans didn't care that much about the game.
Overall, I enjoyed the laid back atmosphere at Trustmark Park.
