The tears started during the 7th inning stretch, and by the 9th, I was praying for extra innings. It wasn’t the one game, it was the culmination of roughly 14 years of ball crashing to the field all at once, like a barreling collision at homeplate. I didn’t know it was possible to feel so much joy and happiness, and sadness at the same time.
Spring Training hits different. It’s a promise of a new season, and an escape from reality, for even just a few days.
Did you go to Spring Training this year but are agonizing over not having a ticket stub from the game? I get it, and I’m with you, which is why I made this ticket stub template!
The biggest thing that jumped out through all of this was just how empty the city was. It was almost as if we’re living in a post ‘Thanos snap’ world. Traveling in age of COVID.
The worst thing about buying tickets through an app? No, it’s not the fees, it’s that you don’t get a physical ticket! I got tired of waiting for StubHub and MLB to come up with a solution and made my own damn ticket! You can too, with this easy, free, and no strings attached download!
It’s all led to this. 17 of 35 shows and my Metallica ‘Black Ticket’ tour comes to an end.
