Welcome 2011 (Ticket Office Tales)
By Douglas Locascio, Director of Ticket Operations & Merchandising
Where o where has the time gone? The year 2010 passed by in the blink of an eye. With January here it is another step closer to opening day 2011 on April 7th. Lots of exciting things are happening here at L.P. Frans Stadium even when baseball is not going on.
The Crawdads are proud to be hosting the 2011 Hot Stove Banquet scheduled for Thursday, January 27th at Rock Barn Golf and Spa. Don’t miss this year’s keynote speaker, Rangers First Baseman Mitch Moreland, talk about Texas’ journey to the World Series and much, much more! Moreland will highlight the fun-filled evening that will begin with a social gathering at 6:15 p.m. before a delicious dinner at 7 p.m. with the program starting shortly after.
College Baseball is coming to L.P. Frans this offseason when the Appalachian State Mountaineers take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in a regional showdown on Tuesday, March 29! First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m., gates open at 6:05 p.m., and tickets are on sale now.
In between those great events are two fun Saturday events that will give the kids something to do. On February 12th, 2011 @ 11:00 AM the 2011 Crawdads Valentines Day party will take place here at the stadium. Then on March 12th, 2011 @ 11:00 AM the 2011 Crawdads St. Patrick’s Day party will be happening.
