November News Update
Rickwood Field Dates for 2015
St. Pete Classic
Just a quick hello after a long mobile journey around America’s heartland.
First news of the day; we finally have the dates for next year’s 3rd Annual Rickwood Field Classic. It will be held on June 26-28. Of all the parks I have played at this is hands down my favorite. Yeah even better than Wrigley or Fenway. It’s quaint antiquated setting and funky light towers along with the new air conditioned locker rooms have made this event for me, my personal favorite.
Then add the unbelievable historical significance of the field, the players who have played there and add the fact that it is basically maintained by 2 gentlemen who need groups like ours to play there to help keep it thriving gives us a great feeling of satisfaction that in a small way we keep one of America’s Crown Jewels of Baseball alive.
It’s the least expensive event we run with a team rate of only $2000. So if you have never been to Rickwood in bustling Birmingham Alabama, here’s your chance.
The next event we will be holding and first of the New Year will be our 3rd trip to sunny warm St. Petersburg for a 3 day event at the Walter Fuller Complex. It has 5 fields, huge clubhouse, batting tunnels etc. All the goodies we are famous for will be available to you….locker, lunch and laundry service for the uniforms. We are hoping to have 8 teams for this full rules event. If you have a team call soon as you can save big time on a team rate. Also, the camp hotel The Postcard Inn looks wild with beach front access, tiki bar, pool, fire pit and surf motif rooms….great spot for the wife or girlfriend to hang out during the day while you’re playing…
We will be holding our annual Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sale (But we won’t be open for business on Thanksgiving) November 28, which will run till Tuesday the Dec. 2nd. It will be a great chance to save on 2015 events with many different pricing options for multiple events, team rates and individual sign ups. You’ll be getting the emails starting next Monday announcing the sale with all the details.
And finally to all my friends around the country who reached out to me via social networking or text messages while I was on my 5000 mile journey around the country, thanks for keeping me company….I went to places I had always wanted to experience, saw some family, great friends, a few ball parks (Louisville and Springfield) and enjoyed the nations back roads for 3 weeks.
Well I gotta bring some wood up to the front porch, it’s getting chilly….heads up for the Sale promos next week…speak to you soon….
