To all members of Gaslamp Ball, but especially those who have been to a game or two at Petco Park, I need some advice. I've never been much of a professional baseball fan, growing up in Oregon made rooting for a team tough. I'm attending the University of San Diego here, and felt the urge to attend a game. I'm not opposed to baseball mind you, it just hasn't drawn me in the way basketball has.
A few friends of mine and I have decided to go to the Pirates game on Saturday the 25th, in the cheap seats with the meal deal mentioned on the front page. My question to you all is: what should I be expecting when I go to the game? Do you guys or gals have any tips on how to make the ballpark experience a truly memorable one, even to a complete non-sports fan?
The last time I went to a professional baseball game, not counting the Portland Beavers, A-Rod was still a Mariner, in the early years of Safeco. Any information you provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, and GO PADRES!
