Spring Training Events
I’ve been working on putting this together for a while now, and this morning, I officially announced a few events that I’m planning for my FanGraphs trip to the Cactus League in March. For all the details, you can check out the full announcement, but here are the basics.
On Friday, March 11th, we’re taking our staff to Goodyear for a match-up between the Indians and the Mariners. We’ve reserved space in the Right Field Pavillion area, which includes unlimited food and non-alcoholic beverages. We’re also hosting a pre-game Q&A with some folks from the Indians front office, so if you’re interested in hearing the perspective of another team’s front office, that’s included in the event. If you’re going to be attending that days Mariners spring training game, now you have the option of watching it with me (and most of the FanGraphs staff) if you’re so inclined.
The following evening, March 12th, we’re hosting a series of panel discussions in a conference room at our hotel. I’ve invited a few executives from different Major League organizations to come, and there may be a member of the M’s front office in that group, so this will act as something similar to prior USSM events we’ve done before, just without the specific Mariners-only focus.
Those two events are on the schedule. Beyond that, I’m likely going to be in Peoria for the M’s game against the A’s on March 12th as well, and if there’s enough interest from folks headed down, we’ll put together some kind of group ticket purchase and watch that game together as well. If you’re interested in that possibility, leave a comment below and we’ll gauge whether that’s something we want to pursue.
