Hey guys and gals. Sorry if this is repetitive. I searched the fan posts to make sure I wasn't repeating anything...if I did feel free to KINDLY direct me to the post. If there's a website I've missed, send that my way!
My boyfriend has been once before, but I've never been. I want to get as much out of this trip as possible. Of course, I want to meet players. We were totally unsuccessful at FanFest after waiting in the sun for 1.5 hours to get an autograph from Cespedes and subsequently missed out on the meet and greet time slot we were given. I don't really want autographs necessarily but to just chat it up for a minute with some players and maybe take some pictures with them. I also am just curious about where the players might hang out on their off-time (not to sound...stalkerish). My boyfriend met Andrew Bailey and Dallas Braden at a bar when he went...it just seems like a cool environment to meet them as opposed to just being a decked-out A's fan at the game trying to meet them with all the other hoards of fans.
Here's what I'm looking for:
- any tips regarding the ST games...how to meet players, what I should check out while at the stadium
- worthwhile places to visit for eating, hanging out, sightseeing, etc
- anything else you think is worthy of mentioning
And yes, I have googled my question already, just in case that response popped up in your head :)
