I had tickets to the April 21st game at Waterfront Park. It turns out that we could not make it so we drove down to Trenton to exchange that game and get a few more tickets for this season.
We exchanged the 21st for May 27th. Larry Bowa will be have a autograph signing at the parks so we figured that we would get three tickets to that nights game.
June 17th is a Tuesday. The Giants AA team is coming to town. I have not seen them since 2009 so while at the box office, we picked up twelve dollar tickets for the night.
For all three games, we got the same seats. They are section 18 row D seats 8,9 and 10. Section 18 is directly behind the visiting dugout. Row D is the second row. Seat 10 is the end seat.There are only seven rows above us before you reach the cross isle so foul balls will be easy to chase.Also, I hope to get many third out balls throughout the games.
I know I have not written in a while. Well, I’m back.
Today I got this package in the mail from Erik Jabs.
Yesterday, I wrote about Trenton. Nybisons and I were speaking and he wanted to ask me a question. Instead of answering, I’m just going to make a blog post.
When you go to Mercer County Waterfront Park, you can practically be in the dugouts.
If you are at a game you get a free roster that is great for identifing the players that you don’t know.
So, lets say that Raul Reyes is walking around the dugout. There are two other kids trying to get autographs. They don’t use the roster so they yell “Number 2 Number 2 sign please!” However he ignores. But, I’m there and I go “Raul! Sign an autograph for me please!” and sure enough, Raul comes and signs.
Here I am leaning in on the area.
We continued our interview with Ryan Tatusko. Check it out below.
We spoke with Ryan Tatusko. He is in AAA for the Washington Nationals
@SethTishler absolutely @RyanTatusko How did you spend your offseason? @RyanTatusko I heard that you Are engaged. Congrats.
Stay tuned for more with the Nats AAA pitcher.
@TysonGillies21 Hi Tyson. Would my son be a bother if he interviewed you for his blog?
@sethtishler nope I don’t Mind!
@TysonGillies21 Thanks. What AA stadium did you enjoy playing in the most? (Besides Reading) @SethTishler I really liked new Hampshire !
@TysonGillies21 Nice stadium there. How is Clearwater treating you?
Today the flyers will close out a great homestand. They will hopefully beat the Lightning tonight. But, that is not why I made this post.
What would you guys like to see given away? So far my ideas are:
CINCINATTI REDS RALLY TOWEL
ARIZONA D-BACKS RALLY TOWEL
TRENTON THUNDER PROMOTIONAL HAT
MANNY BANUELOS BOBBLEHEAD
ROBINSON CANO BOBBLEHEAD
MILWAUKEE BREWERES “THE HOMESTAND” DVD
I have already given out a:
Trenton Thunder 2011 Program to NY Bisons (more…)
Mercer County Waterfront Park
Seeing that I am from NJ, I find myself in Trenton quite a bit. It is not in downtown Trenton which is good because, Sun National Bank Center is and I’m not to crazy about that area. Anyway,
In the photo below, I show the best spot for visiting autographs circled in red. When you enter the stadium, you get a free program with both teams’ rosters. Let’s say that the R-Phils are in town. Let’s also say that Tuffy Goosewisch, number 23 is hanging around the dugout. The other kids will yell “NUMBER 23″ or “Mr.” or “23!”. I can go to the circled area and yell “Tuffy! Can you sign my ball please?” and sure enough, the catcher will come over and sign my ball before he goes out to the bullpen. Also, the yellow dash shows where my tickets are this year.
The next photo is key. It shows two important things. First off, do you see the red square? That is part of the “Picnic porch” are something like that. You can’t just go there, you have to ask an usher. Usually, they let you there but, once or twice we were not allowed because of a private party. Anyway, that is like ballhawking awesomeness in Trenton. Simple throw on visiting team gear. Don’t have it? Great! They sell MLB gear at the Trenton Thunder Company Store, the team gift-shop. Anyway, when the visiting pitcher is done warming up, the catcher usually gives the ball to someone at the porch. If he gives it to you, just leave, you won’t have an opportunity to get a second in that area. If not, don’t be concerned. Just stand near the pitchers bench, squared in blue and lean over the railing. Don’t call anyone’s names and pay complete attention to the game. During the break, face the oitchers. Make sure that they can see your shirt and that you have an empty glove. Chances are that you will get a tossup.
This is a good spot to get player autographs post game
Here are some of my bobbleheads. The rest are in the basement.
Oh and, comment and like to get a Phillies snap-back hat!
These are my two game used MLB bats.
