Take Me Out to the Ballgame

I know a good number of you were interested in hitting up a Padres' game sometime this season. I can arrange group tickets for 20+. Please use this space to indicate your interest and how many tickets you'd like. I am assuming this will be a co-ed event.

Dates I am considering are:

Saturday 18 May @ 5.40p v Nationals (free t-shirt day)
Saturday 1 Jun @ 7.10 v Blue Jays (free jersey day)
Sunday 16 June @ 1.10 v D-Backs
Saturday 24 August @ 5.40 v Cubs (free hat day)
Sunday 25 August @ 1.10 v Cubs

I am willing to entertain other days/times. I picked weekend games, but if you're interested, I'd be up for a weekday DAY game (or an evening game, but I do like day games). Please comment with preferences.

I have not looked into prices at all, but have avoided games that are with division rivals, just for sake of availability. We should be able to get in at a reasonable price for most of these.

 

EDIT: I CHOSE 18 MAY, PLEASE ADJUST YOUR RSVPs ACCORDINGLY. I WILL BEGIN LOOKING AT GROUP PRICING ON MONDAY15 APRIL.

 

EDIT THE SECOND: TICKETS ARE PURCHASED FOR 18 MAY, AND ARE $25 EACH. PLEASE PAY ME VIA PAYPAL TO [masked], and kindly cover the fees.

    The only bad thing is that the game was over too fast. Great to see everyone!!!

    I should have asked earlier, but I assume everyone received their tickets in the mail, right?

    Is the date this Sunday??? If so I would like to attend. Did someone have a ticket that they will no longer be using??? If so I can buy it from u instead of buying a new ticket. Let me know ASAP if not I will buy the ticket tonight. :)

      Hi Elizabeth, we can meet tomorrow before the game. I have short unnaturally red hair and can meet you on J/Market (I think it's market), near where you enter for Park at the Park. I will try to remember to find my Cubs hat. The game starts at 5.40, but I can meet you at 5 and we can go get our seats. Just bring me $25, and I'll have your ticket. If you need me, you can call or text 619.991.1509. This is the seat only, there was too much hassle with the other one.

      That's J/8th, not J/Market. Trolleying in, so I'll be there around 5ish. See you soon!

    May not make it, due to birthday party conflict. Or maybe I'll leave the party, and come to the game for a bit too... we'll see.

    I've got a ticket, but a friend just scheduled a birthday party for this day. So if someone wants in, I've got an extra ticket.

    My +1 and I are definitely in! How/when/where do we pick up the tickets?

    May 6, 2013

    • april

      We're in section 131, rows 11 & 12. If you paypal me the $50 to [masked] (be sure to cover the fees), and provide your mailing address, I will mail your tickets tomorrow morning.

    Hi april, you can release the two tix you have for me. I had counted on the june date and this one doesn't work anymore. Please let me know if you can't get rid of them.

    April 30, 2013

    • april

      Boo! I'm sorry you can't make it; I am willing to entertain the idea of another game later in the season.

      April 30, 2013

    • april

      Oh, and just RSVP "no" for this event to release your tickets. :)

    April, Which option should I use in Paypal? Does it matter?
    1. I'm paying for goods or services
    2. I'm sending money to family or friends

    April 30, 2013

    • april

      Option 2 will give you the ability to cover the fees yourself. Email me your address & I'll mail your ticket out on payment.

    I should be finding out in the next day or two if my vacation is approved, so I'm a hopeful yes.

    April 15, 2013

    • Jennifer Pirnak F.

      Had to cut vacation short by that weekend as some other people in the department needed it.

      April 25, 2013

  • Mary

    Any word on tickets yet?

    April 24, 2013

    • april

      So sorry, I've been dealing with some non-Meetup related stuff. I went with the first date (18 May), because the other was Father's Day and also too much of a deposit (I wasn't sure we'd have the numbers, we needed like 40 folks). So, tickets are $25 each and we're in Section 131.

      April 25, 2013

  • april

    Ladies! Would you be interested in at $40-60 pp private area with all you can eat food/pop? This is incredibly tentative at this point, but we have the possibility to make this happen if you're interested. Please let me know ASAP so I can move forward with this.

    April 11, 2013

    • april

      But if we're already paying extra for food included, it's kind of annoying to spend even more to buy nachos and churros. Though I bet I'd get my money's worth with the free water. Eh, I'm torn really.

      April 15, 2013

    • Darci

      This sounds like so much fun - and I would totally be up for this, (but I, too am saddened that it is not all you can eat nachos)! Unfortunately, if the date is changed to June 16 I won't be able to make it.

    ARGH. I just learned the only day that my photographer can do our engagement photos is May 18th. So bummed I have to miss out.

    Saturday May 18 works for me :)

  • denise

    I just changed my RSVP to yes +1, since I have a lady friend who would like to join us. She loves geekery and baseball, and is extra jazzed about this event. Hope that's okay!

    April 14, 2013

    • april

      Oh yeah, no worries. It's even co-ed, so if you want to bring your boo, you can.

      April 15, 2013

  • Mary

    Hi April! At this point, I can do 18 May. Whatever tickets you shoose are fine with me! I belong to another group and may want to increase my number to include them. I'll let you know. For now, just me.

    Thanks for doing this!

    April 13, 2013

  • april

    Leaning towards 18 May, looks like everyone is free. Tickets range from $10-90, and I was looking at tickets in the $15-25 range. If we can get a group together, we get a discount, so I'll leave it up for a few more days.

    April 11, 2013

      NACHOS! NOM!

    Might change depending on the date

      Does 18 May work? Or that's when you'll be in Europe.

      April 11, 2013

    • april

      There is a good chance we'll do a second date if this goes over well enough.

      April 11, 2013

  • denise

    Oooh fun! May or June would work well for me. I have a wedding to go to 8/24. :S

    April 10, 2013

  • Belle B.

    If the tickets are affordable count us in. 5/18 and 8/24 &25 are good for me

    April 10, 2013

    Yes. I am interested.

    I'll go if the date works. May 4 won't!

    April 10, 2013

  • Heather

    How about Saturday, May 4? The padres are in town and playing the Diamondbacks. Another suggestion is May 18 versus the Nationals.

    April 10, 2013

    • Heather

      All of the dates above work for the two of us.
