Another BP/USSM at the Park update
I just wanted to give you guys an update on the USS Mariner/Baseball Prospectus
trip to Safeco. We posted this Friday afternoon, but for those of you who may have
taken off early for the weekend and only check the blog from “work”, we didn’t want
you to miss out. Details below.
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.
Game Tickets in our section cost $17.50 each, and seats will be located in Section
326, Rows 20-24, in the View Reserved (upper deck) section just to the
first-base side of home plate. The ticket price includes a small service charge
for Group Ticket Window, an online system that will enable you to buy and
print your tickets from your home computer.
There will be an additional fee to cover the cost of renting the facility and providing
refreshments during the feed. An exact cost will be determined shortly, but we will work
to keep the price as low as possible. Expect it to fall in the $10-15 range.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org 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).
There are only 25 spots or so remaining, 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.
