Down on the Farm: A Visit to “MoonDog Country”

Franklin Rogers Park 1

I’m big on quick ballpark access and the egress/ingress here is top notch. Parking is ample and free, the grounds are wide, and you’re close to the action. Multiple recent renovations also enhance the overall experience at Franklin Rogers.

Unlike the open air set up I witnessed in Fargo 48 hours prior, this 1,400-seat venue has you covered — literally. There is one simple grandstand with covered seats, mainly chair backs. Almost no seating is available down the line, but rather mainly benches, chairs and tables behind a chain-link fence.
