I took the family down on Saturday. It was a great time, had to drag the kid away after 5 hours. Lots to do for adults and kids alike. A few things, the autograph setup is still dumb allowing for 2 hour + lines. There is no reason they can't split it up to minimize lines. The Bucs have instituted a hefty raise on ticket prices. My partial season tickets are in section 130 (3B side) and they increased from $28 a game to $32 and all Saturday games are now premium games at $37. Of the many good things, I met Jack Wilson, he seemed to be quite happy to be back in town and to have time to spend with his family. Also got to meet Steve Blass and actually have a conversation. For those that haven't gone before, its a massive giveaway of last year's game promotion leftovers. We came home with 6 T-shirts, 2 blankets, a visor, a Pirate cookie cutter, and two free tix to any weekday game. The fan player interaction was very good, I walked and talked along with Alex Presley and Starling Marte for a few minutes. Also, talked with Barmes who stuck his head out between the curtains of the player area for a short signing opportunity. The funniest thing I saw was when we first arrived right by the ticket entrance. Pedro and Marte walked out in street clothes and no one even noticed them hanging around. I didn't draw attention since it seemed like they were looking for something. All in all a very fun afternoon for the $12 admission.
