Spring training is peeking it’s head around the corner in Clearwater, Fla., and the Phillies are gearing up for 2010. How have I gone this long with out a professional sport to be jazzed/angry about?
For me (and most people who bought a ticket to a game last year) spring will come early today, as presale tickets are available online only through an exclusive two-day sale ending tomorrow at midnight. Special highlighted games available for purchase are:
• Opening Week, April 12-15 (Washington Nationals) and April 16-18 (Florida Marlins)
• McDonald’s 2009 National League Champions T-shirt – April 14
• 2009 National League Champions Ring Ceremony – April 15
• Irish Heritage Celebration – April 16
• Turkey Hill Kid’s Opening Night/Ryan Howard NLCS MVP baseball & Collectible Tin – April 17
• Hatfield Phillies Franks Dollar Dog Games
• May 3, May 17, June 7, July 5, Sept. 6 and Sept. 20
If you don’t have an insider’s pass, you’ll have to wait till Thursday, Feb. 18, to snag up individual seats. Either way, you can feel a bit of the snow melt off your shoulders already.
