Whitecaps Open House

gr1Fifth Third Ballpark-Comstock Park, MI: Yes, I know there is still about ten feet of snow on the ground, but that fact couldn’t keep us from visiting Fifth Third Ballpark over the weekend. The West Michigan Whitecaps held a special Open House for their fans. There were many fun things going on, and the kids and I really had a good time despite the cold. In Michigan, the weather can always be worse, so at least the sun was out for us. Outside, Brian really enjoyed the carnival rides, Trevor showed off his throwing arm, and Lily taught her little brother how to make s’mores! Inside the Pepsi Stadium Club, we enjoyed some free hot dogs, and I was able to purchase some tickets for opening day and another weekend in April. We also got to interact with the Whitecaps’ mascots, Crash and Franky. Crash is all excited, because they will be joined by a female River Rascal on opening day. I was able to get some pictures of the progress of the ballpark reconstruction, also. I really couldn’t believe how many fans showed up, and even the staff on had been a little blown away by the attendance. We all had a great time, and again, it was just nice to get out to the ballpark, no matter what time of year it is.

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.

The Greatest Minor League Baseball Blog of All Time

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.
