Thanks again to guest blogger Michael San Soucie!
The 2012 game dates are now available for ticket orders at www.mariners.com/nopeanuts. I also noticed a couple other cool things about the games being offered to our group this year. Two of the games are also free giveaway days and one is a business man’s special during the summer which we have not had previously. Pretty cool!
So here are some more specifics on the game dates and the special events taking place those nights:
Sunday, April 22nd vs. Chicago White Sox – this is a day game as we have always requested for those with smaller children. It is also Little League Day! This means a chance to go on the field prior to the game. For those wanting to go on the field for the pre-game parade, have your child wear his/her uniform and get their early. The parade begins at 11:30am and you just need to line up at the Right Field ramp near section 114. This is basically below our seating section on the lower level. All kids 14 and under also receive a drawstring backpack upon entering the stadium.
Friday, May 25th vs. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim – this game is a chance to see Albert Pujols, one of the best players in the game today. It is also Dustin Ackley Bobblehead night. The first 20,000 fans get a free bobblehead. You will need to get there very early to get one of these. It will be a very popular giveaway.
Thursday, July 26th vs. Kansas City Royals – this night is also the 8th annual Stitch ‘n’ Pitch night. Bring your knitting, stitching, quilting, or other fiber arts projects to the game, get help from experts, view the latest samples from area shops, and meet other enthusiasts while enjoying a night at the ballpark.
Wednesday, August 15th vs. Tampa Bay Rays – this game is our very first business man’s special; a midweek day game! Take the day off of work and enjoy a sunny, summer day at the ballpark with your kids. Also a second opportunity for those with younger children to come to the ballpark and not have the kids out too late.
What a great selection of games this year. I can’t wait! Hope to see and meet lots of you at the ballpark this season.
