Tickets in the Hand

pawsoxtix.JPG
The first tickets for my 2011 baseball trip have arrived. Unfortunately, these may be the only tickets I’ll have in my hand before departing. The way ticket sales are now, you usually have to have some sort of printout, or your tickets sent to the Will Call window. The company I usually deal with for Minor League teams is called Ticket Return. It’s a good easy website that doesn’t have huge charges like Ticket Master. A lot of teams use this site, from teams in Iowa to Portland. At least you have the choice to pick tickets up or print them at home. Personally, I like real tickets, and ticket stubs as suveniors. The Boston Red Sox ticket I had to buy through Stub Hub, so I’ll be approaching Fenway this May with two computer printouts in my hand instead of real tickets. That is kind of disappointing to me…I just won’t feel right. Recieving my PawSox tickets in the mail is what you’d expect from this franchise. By the look of McCoy Stadium, it looks like an old time field, and the team seems to do things the old time way. I still have to get tickets for the Fisher Cats and Rock Cats, so we’ll see how their ticket offices work.

I hardly ever get printed tickets anymore since I mostly deal through StubHub and get e-tickets from their site. It’s what I get for waiting until the last minute to purchase.

I agree with you regarding “real” tickets. I like to put the stubs in my photo album with the pics from the game. The computer printed tickets just aren’t the same.

The Ticket Master tix are bad enough, since they look so generic. I’m hoping I can exchange my printouts for real tickets when I get to Boston.

This is a very simple game...

You throw the ball. You catch the ball. You hit the ball...Of course, baseball fans know that this line from Bull Durham is far from true, part of the humor of the movie and a huge part of the fun of the game. This blog is a space to talk about baseball, being a baseball fan, all of those things that make the game fun and the Angels, because they make baseball fun for me.
