About a week ago I decided I want to go see the new Mariner team. There has been a big turn over in players this year and besides, who does not like to get a little sun in Arizona? Last night I got cheep airfare on Alaska. I got a car from Trifty. I was even able to get a really good seat to a game in KC park. The last step was to get up early and buy tickets for the M’s home games that went on sale at 9 am. What did I do this morning? Well the radio alarm went off and I just stayed in bed and listen to it. About 9:30 I remembered that I was going to get up and buy tickets and the mad dash was on. Most of the good seats were gone for the games I knew would go first. I guess to be fair there are lots of seats still available but if you wanted to sit in th club seats in the shade or really down close I was out of luck for a couple of the games.
I am going to be down at Spring training from Monday March 7th through Saturday March 12th. The Cub game in Thrusday was the first priority because the Cubs bring a ton of fans. Thankfully there were no D-Back games that I needed to get tickets for because they also bring a ton of fans. Also for those of you that might be planning a trip, the Giants will have a lot of fans for the weekend games and if you need to get tickets for their stadium I wish you all the luck. I have never been able to get anything other than grass seats for games there. After the Cub game I had to focus on Friday and Saturday because many more people come down and for those games I wanted to get 2 tickets just in case someone else decides to come. For the three games I end up with section 200 level seats which is OK but not great. The rest of the games I ended up with really close or great club level seats.
Is anyone else going to be down there when I am there? Add a comment or drop me a note. The Moyer Foundation has a fun party at Rawhide on Friday the 11th. Lots of players generally come and the food is good. I went the last time I went to Spring training and had a good time.
Speaking of Spring Training. The M’s are playing in Vega$ on April 1 & 2. Who want to be in Vega$ for that? We have a little time to decide as tickets for the games (agains the Cubs) do not go on sale until 3/1 but we should book hotel and airfare soon.
