For awhile they held that price all game but that seems to have passed. Granted I have been told of the change and gotten the old price several times over.

Even at the full price of $8 a go they're still worth it (taste is what counts) and still cheaper than import cans in the 300's ($8.75).

Just got $5-ish tickets for 302 level seats. Want to go early and get the bobblehead and maybe get a chance to get my sister's hat signed (assuming Signature Sundays are possible to participate in). We also love watching batting practice so that'll be another reason to go early.

And on top of that we'll be seeing Stras pitch.

Pretty sure that will be my last picnic in the park, they continue to be horribly organized, as usual.

I agree Bob - this organization needs some work with their special events.  But I can very easily be suckered into another one anytime.

What I thought was going to be a crazy dull wait between the picnic and game turned out to be one hell of a happy hour. There are a lot of cool people who have moved into the neighborhood.

Well no autographs and as I was typing I was in line to take get pictures.  So its true!  Running into message board buddies was fun.

I had my picture taken with Ryan Z.  Then Espi and Leon.

Then my pal and I sat and talked with Blue for a couple of hours!

The Bobbleheads were gone about 65 minutes before the game started for Strasburg.  Over/under on Morse beating that time today, the only difference is Strasburg's game started at 4 on a Saturday and obviously more fans are coming out to the park now than in April.
 
Also I've never been early enough on a Sunday to be there for the Signature part.  I know it says 2 players will be signing starting at 12:25.  What type of players is it and how hard do they make it to get autographs?

What could well happen is what happened at the Capitals - when that club's STH base grew to the point that the Phone Booth couldn't accommodate everyone for the STH party, they started holding the STH party at Six Flags instead (and, from what I've read, really made autograph access to top players a lot more difficult).

The picnic was poorly organized, but pretty cool.

Sat front row to a Q and A with half of the bullpen; they're some pretty cool guys. And Werth seems like a nice guy, too, surprisingly.

Will be there.

2 lanes between sections are where you line up.  Warning they are not there that long.  The players signing aren't announced until the last minute.  My experience is its been bullpen guys or goon squad guys.

After yesterdays fiasco, I hope its better.

Capital Weather Gang's NatCast has 'It's hot and sticky at the park today. Showers and storms may threaten the later innings, but they should get the game in' with 90 at first pitch, low 90's by ninth inning, and 40% chance of rain.

Doubt Morse beats that.

Had a great time Saturday night at the game and bought ticket for the game on the 22nd.  Wife is a big Dierks Bentley fan.
