For an old-fashioned summer baseball park experience, take the whole family out to the Shark Tank in Oak Bluffs for a wood-bat game between two collegiate teams. The Shark Tank has lights, bleachers, hot dogs and hamburgers and a whole lot of Island spirit. You might even spot Sharks fan Bill Murray in the crowd.
