PDC is buying a batch of group tickets for the Trenton Thunder versus the Portland SeaDogs next Thursday, July 26 at 7PM. We picked this game because at the end of it there will also be fireworks! Every Thursday night game ALSO has $2 beer specials until the middle of the 5th inning.
The Trenton Thunder are the nearest local Minor League baseball team. They play in Arm & Hammer Park, just 25min away on the Delaware River waterfront (see below). Because it is Minor League (the level below Major League), the stadium is fairly small, with great views for everyone, and all the food is cheap. It's a lot of fun!
Tickets are limited and will be given out on a first-come, first-serve RSVP basis. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to join. In your RSVP, please also cite:
1. Whether or not you can drive. PDC will coordinate carpools, but we need drivers, so please help us out!
2. FYI to any internationals who’ve never been to a baseball game: it can be quite long (~3 hours), and often slow...so it can help to bring a postdoc friend to pass the time with. Please let us know any postdoc friends you’d like to be seated next to (they do not need to send a separate RSVP). But please also DO feel free to come solo and meet your fellow postdocs! Unfortunately we can't accommodate non-postdoc friends in the group ticket batch.
3. Although the game (and fireworks) will run quite late, PDC would like to accommodate any immediate family members (spouses and children) who want to make a night of it. If you drive yourself, you are obviously welcome to leave early if it gets too late for the kids. In your RSVP, please just cite their names and relation to you, and we'll buy tickets for as many as we can (after fulfilling postdoc demand).
Hope to see you there!
