Tickets Are Here!!!
While we plan to buy walk-up tickets at most stadiums, there are a few ballparks where we need to get tickets in advance. Wrigley Field, Fenway Park, Yankee Stadium, and AT&T Park regularly sell out. As we were planning the trip we immediately checked for ticket availability at these parks. We were fortunate to get Cubs, Yankees, and Giants tickets directly from the teams but had to use Stub Hub for Red Sox tickets. Well, they have started arriving at our doorstep. I've got the Yankees and Giants tickets as well as ones for the Angels and Cardinals and Peter has got our Red Sox tickets. (Warning to Cardinals fans: There will be three Brewers fans sitting in Section 509 at the game on July 28. We will cheer loudly for the Brew Crew and enjoy a quality beverage - Pabst Blue Ribbon - not the beer flavored water you call Budweiser.) Of course we need to use ticketmaster and tickets.com to purchase baseball seats in March. The major drawback to this is that these tickets are not printed on the teams ticket stock. On great part of going to a baseball game is that the event comes with a built-in souvenir. I've got a tin full of all my stubs going back years at home and Peter displays him at his desk at school. Ticketmaster and tickets.com use their own stock and deprive me of my souvenir.
An extra loud BOO! to whoever ordered Red Sox tickets and chose the Print-At-Home option. A sheet of paper is not a ticket!
