I will be at Disneyworld for whatever the clinching game of this series is, which has cost me only slightly less than a ticket to the ballpark.

Enjoy the gently caress out of going to the WS y'all. Have a beer for me.

Also I said Arrieta would throw a solid six but I'll be ok with an amazing 5.2.

I'm five rows up and right in the middle of the row. Downside: have to step over everyone to get to the bathrooms. Upside: I strategically picked them so the roof pillars are both out of the field of play in my sight lines.

I'm thinking this season ticket change period I may try to either get row 1 of the upper section of the upper deck, or down fairly low in the lower section of the upper deck. Love the sight lines, regardless!

I have a single seat in the cheapest section. I think it's about $1900 a year, which I can make a decent bit back because I can't go to many of the games, as I'm liable to be traveling for work. Postseason was ~$1100 for all possible games. If you get a few friends together and have a ticket draft, it's actually not too bad for season tickets. The tough part is getting them in the first place. I don't even want to think about what the wait list is like right now.

(Edit: not to say it isn't a chunk of change, but there are ways to make it more affordable. 82 home games for $1900 is ~$23 per seat per game. Can definitely spread it around a bit)

I waited ten years, and was called in 2012, after the Cubs had their 100+ loss season. That may have had something to do with it. I think there were ~44k people in front of me when I signed up. That's got to be one of the longer season ticket wait lists in pro sports, I'd think.

By the way, the reason Schwarber is heating up the mid section of the bat like that is to get the pine tar sticky again. In cold weather pine tar becomes solid and loses its tackiness.

For amusement, I signed up for Cubs season tickets 2 days ago. My waiting list number is currently: 96258

Don't go to far down, especially if you're in foul territory past the bases. There's a certain point where a third of the outfield is essentially a black void of can't see poo poo.
