Who else is ready for Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp Baseball season? The season opener is April 4th, 2023 and we are so ready to cheer on our Jumbo Shrimp with the rest of Crustacean Nation! We want you to be ready to experience all that 121 Financial Ball Park has to offer during the Jumbo Shrimp 2023 season so this guide is for you.
We have curated a fan’s guide to Jumbo Shrimp Baseball : Food, Parking and More to answer all your questions and to get you pumped up! Grab your peanuts and cracker jacks and keep reading for all the info!
Do you know where the Jumbo Shrimp name came from? Jacksonville has unique water geography as the River City on the First Coast so the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp represents those themes and expresses the affordable family fun of Minor League Baseball. Also, the logo Shrimp forms a J for Jacksonville! If you’ve never been to a game at 121 Financial Ballpark, you’re missing out. From hanging out at the tiki bar behind left field to special themed nights, there is something for everyone.
We love the Jumbo Shrimp mascots! South Paw has been with the Jumbo Shrimp since 1996 and Scampi was added to the team in 2017. If you are lucky, you will be able to snag a picture with these Duval icons during the game while they are walking around. You can also book them for your next event!
“Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks. I don’t care if I ever go back, for its root, root, root for the home team…” While those two items are ballpark staples along with an ice-cold beverage, the food offerings at games have definitely expanded over the years.
Our favorite food to grab at Jumbo Shrimp games is the BOOM BOOM SHRIMP (Popcorn Shrimp) from Southern Fried Freebird Concessions behind home plate section. We also love grabbing a souvenir Jumbo Shrimp cup for all the pictures.
