First Time Commenters report for duty!

Gaslamp Ball wants you... in the worst way!

You'll notice that we rarely ask you to sign up and comment because we kinda trust that you'll join when you're ready.  Today is the exception.

We've tried this experiment 1, 2, 3, 4 times and each time we've been pleasantly surprised by the new commenters that have joined and contributed to the site in some way.

Pitchers and catchers have already reported to Spring Training facilities all over the world! Now it's time for you to report.  The season is upon us. We need you in our corner.

This is your chance to finally realize your dream of becoming a Gaslamp Baller.  There's some people new to the site and some long time lurkers that just need a little encouragement to join in.  Comment for the first time, give us your thoughts on the team or introduce yourself.

If it wasn't for threads like these we might never have been introduced to Padres_Hobo, whithd3 and goldfyngor

Jakob Nielsen says that 95% of blog readers are lurkers, 5% contribute and .1% contribute frequently. 

That means for every time that we get someone like sdsuaztec4 who posts 7400 one word comments, there are 1000 other sane people lurking around doing nothing. 

Ease yourself into the warm waters of Gaslamp Ball, clothing is totally optional.
