BP/USSM at the Park Update

Dave · July 1, 2005 at 1:24 pm · Filed Under Mariners 

The outing we mentioned yesterday is now official. Details are below. Seriously, this is going to be an awesome event. Sign up pronto.

Oh, and its not included in the little blurb below, but Jeff Shaw will be there too. He’s reason enough to come. So sign up already.

Come talk baseball, listen to guest speakers and enjoy a day at the
ballpark! Baseball Prospectus author Jonah Keri, BP alums and USS Mariner
authors Derek Zumsteg and Dave Cameron, and a few well-known surprise
guests are hosting a Ballpark Feed at Safeco Field, Saturday July 16 vs.
the Orioles. The event will start at 5 p.m., featuring a sit-down and Q&A
with featured speakers inside the Interview Room at Safeco Field. The game
will follow at 7:05 p.m.

Tickets cost $17.50 each, and seats will be located in Section
, Rows 20-24, in the View Reserved (upper deck) section just to the
first-base side of home plate. The ticket price includes a service charge
for Group Ticket Window, an online system that will enable you to buy and
print your tickets from your home computer.

There may be an additional charge for room rental at the park–if there
is, we’ll let you know ASAP.

Please RSVP to seattlefeed@yahoo.com if you’d like
to attend. Please indicate the following in your e-mail:

1) With a clear number (i.e. 2, 3, 4 etc.), indicate *exactly* how many
people will be going.

2) Full names of each attendee (for nametag purposes).

Tickets are limited to 65 total, so please RSVP ASAP. If you’ve already
e-mailed to express initial interest, we will count that e-mail as an RSVP
(requiring payment for tickets), unless we receive a cancellation notice.
We will provide details on how to obtain your tickets once we’ve reached
our limit of 65. We will also provide instructions on how to get to the
Interview Room and other details a few days before the game.

    Good job, Dave, you guys rock. The date’s a conflict for me but I’m sure a good time will be had by all. Keep up the good work, and the rest of you yahoos REMEMBER YOUR BEER ETIQUETTE.

    P.S. I’ll be watching on TV for a gap in the wave.

    Does that mean “buy the cheap good beer OUTSIDE Safeco”?

    Just RSVPed. Wow get sick for a few days and you miss out on stuff.

    If I already have tickets for that night, can I come to the pre-game function and not get tickets in the block? I realize I’ll be missing half the fun and am happy to chip in for the room cost if any.

    Adam, if you RSVP to seattlefeed@yahoo.com with your full name and number of people coming, and indicate in the e-mail subject line and bodytext that you need 0 game tickets, then yes, there are a handful of open slots in the room beyond ticket holders, and you could have one of them.

    What’s the RSVP count up to?

    I’d love to go but I really do have a travel excuse: I live in Japan. I hope you guys have a great time despite the team.

    I suppose I also have a “valid” travel excuse. The internet has done a lot of wonderful things to keep me connected (both to the USS Mariner and BP) while I’ve been down here, but it can’t transport me magically back to Seattle.

    You guys have fun, and I’ll sit here crying in my copa de cachaca.
