Ron, one of our most loyal readers, asked folks last week if they wanted to get together for a AAA game this summer and the response was tremendous. He asked me to post this update:
The second-annual LoHud Yankees Blog outing to see the Triple-A SWB Yankees at PNC Field in Moosic, Penn., has been set for Sunday, July 5.
The cost will be $32 per person (kids 2 and under are free).. The outing will be held in the Right Field Bullpen Field Box. The price includes the game ticket, program, hat, all you can eat food (hot dogs, hamburgers, BBQ chicken, pasta salad, cole slaw, baked beans, watermelon, cookies) and unlimited soda and water. The bullpen field box will also have a dedicated bartender servicing a cash bar.
If interested in attending the outing, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate the number of tickets you’d like to purchase. I’ll then send you an invoice through PayPal for the total amount due. If you’re coming from out of town and need directions and information on hotels, attractions, etc. please let me know and I’ll provide it to you. Reservations have been going fairly quickly and will be done on a first-come, first-served basis once you confirm the number of tickets you’d like.
Also, please feel free to e-mail me with any questions you may have.
This is Pete again. Thanks so much to Ron for setting this up again. We had a blast last summer and I’m looking forward to hanging out and watching some baseball again with everybody.
The Journal News had t-shirts made up for this event last season and I’m hoping they’ll do so again. One way or another, I will arrive with free stuff.
