I'm a little behind this year, but please don't fret, I've got our tickets reserved and am ready to take payments for this year's meet-up.
The most popular choice as far as dates was Saturday, August 2. This is a 7:08 p.m. game against the Rockies.
We are back in the same section as last year, section 143, rows 40, 41, and 42 (seating chart here). As has been typical in recent years, prices continue to rise. These are $46 each.
If you're planning to attend, please read on for payment options and count yourself in by answering "yes" to the poll. If you are bringing a guest (or guests) please comment and say how many. I will put up my own money for the ticket deposit, so if you are able to pay promptly, it's greatly appreciated.
The preferred and easiest way to keep track of your payments is if you send $46 per ticket to me via PayPal. I will not steal your money (promise, I've taken over $7000 in payments over the years!), and it really is a LOT easier for us to manage this if you pay online. You can do this by logging into your PayPal account and clicking "Send Money" to my email address: amh1980 at gmail.com. Please be sure to do two things when you send your payment:
1. Mark it as "family or friends" to avoid extra fees being taken out of the transaction. If you don't, that means I lose a buck or two per transaction on my end, and you will get the side-eye upon meeting me.
2. Put your BYB username - even if you are sure I'll know who you are - as well as your guest's name if you're bringing one somewhere in the notes so I can keep track of who sent what payment.
Cath (known as Baroque on here) will be helping me organize everything. If you would like to pay by check or money order, I will be referring you to her to arrange payment. Email me at the address above for further information.
We have 40 seats reserved, and while it could be possible if I request them soon, I am not counting on being able to get more tickets with the group. I know August seems like a long time from now, but try to decide if you are coming soon before we run out! We're trying to have all tickets accounted for by July 2nd.
Everyone seemed to really like The Dirty Trick, our new pregame venue right across the street from Comerica - I'm planning to get in touch with the owner again this year. I hope to see lots of you there, and I will post updates/reminders over the next few months!
