I got an email today from the Red Sox with a link to the Banana's site for the presale. They suggest you make an account now to smooth the purchase process on Wednesday at 10am.

Fairly quick and painless purchase process. Gave a few different options for tickets (shown below). No fees added in which is a nice change of pace.

Bananas-related:

For those in NE, Savannah Bananas' owner, Jesse Cole, will be giving a lecture that is free and open to the public on Tuesday, March 5 at 5:30 p.m., at the University of Hartford's Chase Arena (CT).

Info & Registration

From the link: "Cole's lecture, "Stop Standing Still, Start Standing Out", will inspire you to do just that! Speaking on his life experience and what he has learned throughout his career, Cole will leave you with plenty of inspiring words and ways to find success in everything you do."

Congrats to all who got tickets today! Their website is crash-tacular when tix go on sale so that it did not for this sale is good news.

I am in the upper bowl, I am curious how the "act" will scale to being so far away from the action. Up to this game, I have only been to games in Savannah.

So what was the bullshit drawing they had people sign up for that they never followed through on?

That may have been the waiting list. I believe they had a period of time to sign up for it, then drew names at random - they did cut off signups for it once it appeared there were very many more names than they could reasonably accommodate (I guess). I was not picked for one of the choices I wanted. Despite how "big" they are getting, I think there is a little bit of "building the plane as they are learning to fly" going on. There is only 1 game in Fenway (not a series) so that really cuts down on the available tickets.

Surprised that no one mentioned Roger Clemens made a guest appearance as a pitcher for the Savannah Bananas in Houston on Sunday against the Party Animals. Alas, when called in relief in the second inning with two outs and two runners on base, he gave up a two-run single to the first batter he faced and then a home run before getting a batter to ground out to him to end the inning.

That guy who hit the HR hit it about 400 feet. It hit off of the facing near the train tracks.

Got an email a few minutes ago from the Bananas about the game at Fenway. For anyone that purchased tickets you may remember that you chose a general section of where you'd be able to choose your seat (mine were lower bowl, section 131-155). They are now walking back the "general admission" part of that and will be assigning seats in the section where you bought tickets. Honestly this makes life a lot easier because I think the GA idea in a certain section was going to be a shit show.

100% agree - the mad crush for seats would be a disaster. This makes for a more leisurely entrance to the game.
