And I cannot say that I blame them.
The Ballard Beavers baseball team is currently selling tickets for a Seattle Mariners game on Thursday, April 11th against the Rangers. They will either sell you single game tickets, or a 20-ticket bundle for $200. These tickets are for the 300-level along the first baseline, and frankly, $200 for 20 tickets is not a bad price at all, if you’ve got 20 friends who want to spend an evening at Safeco for $10 a pop. The goal is 1,000 tickets sold total, and the prize is the team getting to play a game at Safeco against the defending 4A State Champions, the Kentwood Conquerors. You can get the full info at the link above, or contact their coach at firstname.lastname@example.org. The game the Beavers would get to play is on April 6th, is free admission, and $5 gets you a parking space in the Safeco Field garage, and that is not too shabby. So give some kids a great opportunity, and drop Coach Doug a line at the email above.
