Potomac Nationals Professional Baseball :: Class A Affiliate of the Washington Nationals
The ad was awfully engaging, consisting of a coupon for buy-1-get-1-free tickets (up to buy-10-get-10-free!), a season schedule, and a note that Monday & Thursday are Dollar Nights, with $1 Tickets, $1 Hot dogs, $1 Pepsi, and $1 Popcorn!
Well. For some reason, today I found this appeal hard to ignore -- prices from 5 decades ago do that to me sometimes -- so we checked out where exactly this stadium was (since that key information was, oddly, left off the ad). Lo and behold, it's in Woodbridge, VA, which is about 30 minutes from our place. I think we'll make an excursion down there.
Additional fun stuff I picked up from their website:
Their comprehensive archive of near-daily press releases was very helpful:
2/14/2005: POTOMAC ANNOUNCES NEW TEAM NAME AND LOGOS
Potomac Cannons club owner Art Silber announced that the team's new name will be the Potomac Nationals for the 2005 season. The announcement took place Sunday, February 13 at the 10th Annual Hot Stove Banquet and Silent Auction at the Hyatt Fair Lakes hotel in Fairfax.Hey, they even used to be with the Cards, too...
If you can't tell, I'm really tickled by all this... It's much more fun to contemplate going to a local field (quite cheaply) and following a team that's not made up of rich carpetbaggers than it is to fight the crowds and the traffic to get downtown and back and pay 20x as much for the privilege.
And did I mention, there's fireworks every Saturday? 4 comment(s)
I love minor league baseball. Sitting in the sun, drinking beer, watching the hardcore craziness that accompanies a minor league game? There's nothing better!
You'll have to join us for a game sometime, then! :)
You should definitely check out minor league baseball.Add a comment...
