Take me out to the ball game: USSSA Global World Series in Orange Beach

America's favorite pastime is in full swing all summer along the Alabama Gulf Coast, and if you're looking for the perfect combination of hot sun and sports, then the USSSA Global World Series events could be just the ticket. Orange Beach is not only the center of the baseball action this June, July and August, but it's one of the hottest places to vacation in Alabama! Whether you know people on the teams or you're just looking to cheer on the players, you and the family can attend numerous games and feel the joy of summer behind home plate.

Where's all the action taking place? Here are some of the famous landmarks in Orange Beach that you'll be seeing a lot of during the Global World Series:

Amphitheater at the Wharf

You can catch plenty of baseball and softball games in Orange Beach, Ala., this summer.If you've ever stayed at an Orange Beach condo, you've probably been to the Amphitheater at the Wharf. This prominent venue hosts a slew of summer concerts and other events and this season is no different. The pin trading event and opening ceremonies will both take place on this renowned stage, meaning that you'll certainly find a spot to watch the action in its ample, Greek-inspired seating area. No matter when you reserve your Orange Beach rental for the family, be sure to check out what's happening at the Amphitheater during your stay, because you never know what festive activities you might be able to add to your itinerary.

Beaches abound

With a name like Orange Beach, it's no surprise that the stretches of shoreline are plentiful in the city. You'll certainly find a number of sports players and their families basking in the sun on their days off from the games, but there's enough space for all vacationers to find a prime place to relax in a beach chair. You can rent a jet ski, go parasailing, fish along the coast or take a rewarding jog that will surely get your leg muscles working hard. The best part is that you only have to walk a few steps in the sugar white sand from Orange Beach houses to be at the water's edge, so even if you only squeeze in an hour or two on the beach before a baseball game, it will be a morning well spent.

Awesome eateries

In between sports games and beach trips, your appetite will certainly be calling. Luckily, great restaurants like Tacky Jack's are the perfect dining and hangout spots for families taking Orange Beach vacations. Great eats include fried pickles, crawfish tails, fried green tomato fries and the famous "Mexican Garbage," which is Tacky Jack's loaded beef and cheese nachos. Plus, there's toe-tapping music to keep you entertained for hours - just don't forget to catch that baseball game!
