Just Over 2 Months Until First Pitch
by Len Nunes
Baseball is still one of the most relaxing and at the same time exciting sports to watch.
Sporting events are inherently exciting: who will win, who will lose? Even if you have never really got the point of going to watch a baseball game, or maybe your dad's a big baseball fan and he wants to take the whole family to see a game but you are not that keen on the idea, remember the following:
There's a reason Telus Field is called a "park", the baseball experience is pretty much akin to what you would experience at a real park. Enjoy the atmosphere. Save for a few exceptions you're outside on a nice evening. It's a much better option than sitting home in bed, so enjoy the feeling of being amongst an electric crowd in an outdoor environment.
Enjoy the company you're keeping, the finest gift you can give another person who loves or cares about you is spending time with them. The casual pace makes for the perfect social outing. Unlike other sporting events, it’s easy to laugh and converse with friends, family or a date.
Yes, a Prospects game makes for a great "date night". What better way to get to know someone than to go to a baseball game? Sure, the old dinner-and-a-movie date is OK but it is terribly cliché and it is not easy getting to know someone over a meal much less during a film. If you do not want talk during the game, there is always time between innings to chat. You're in a public place so if one does not want to be alone with their date they do not have to be. You can carry on a conversation with your date at a normal tone of voice and not have to get shushed. You do not have to worry about asking or getting asked to dance like at a nightclub. There is not dance music played at ear-splitting decibels either to make it difficult to be heard or to listen.
Whether it be a family outing, a date, or just a couple friends hanging out, every seat at Telus Field is the best seat in the house. You will be able to see all of the action on the field just as if you were watching a MLB game on TV.
Opening week has 4 games, starting with a 2-game series on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 4 and 5 versus the Okotoks Dawgs. Both games start at 7:05PM.
Saturday June 8 and Sunday June 9, the Prospects welcome the Lethbridge Bulls to Telus Field. T
