The highy anticipated G-Rock, paper, scissors tournament is tonight on the outfield concourse. I have heard Erin and Kramer on G-Rock’s morning show pumping this up for weeks now during my morning commute. They sound really excited to referee. Kind of a funny story as to how this thing started as an idea around here. Our Director of Group Sales, Jim McNamara won a local qualifier for the National RPS competition in Las Vegas a few months back. Next thing he knows, he has an all expense paid trip to Vegas to compete on a national stage. When all was said and done, he was done in the first round. After talking to him just a few minutes ago, evidently his research failed him. He found out that statistics show a majority of combatants throw rock first. Not that time, as he threw paper and it didn’t cut it for him forcing a loss to scissors.

1. Barajas and Victorino- So maybe Victorino didn’t get to take the field, but how about having two rehabbing Major Leaguers on our roster at the same time? (In case you were curious, no, that has never happened here before.) That makes three r
ehab assignments in Lakewood for the season thus far. Maybe you heard about some guy named Howard that was here in May?
2. Beating the rain!- We just dumped last night’s storm off of the tarp and are doing everything we can to get tonight’s double header under way on time (5:05!). If any field is going to hold up after some decent rain, it’s FirstEnergy’s. This 4-game homestand vs. the Crawdads has big playoff implications and we’re going to do our best to finish it out.
3. Counting Crows Prep- The stage goes up tomorrow for the Jersey Shore’s concert event of the summer. Every day on the way to work I hear the radio stations promoting it. People around the office are pumped to see the whole event go down. Fans around the park are getting excited. If you’ve been to a few games, you know we always try to give you some pertinent info and flyers on your way out of the ballpark. As we’ve been giving out our concert flyers, it’s been real exciting to see people’s faces as they recognize the magnitude of this show.
Were you here for Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson a few years back? What about Def Leppard and Bryan Adams? We’d love it if you’d share some of your FirstEnergy Park concert memories here!
If you’ve been to multiple BlueClaws games, you know that there is always something fun going on here. We do our best to make sure you take home an awesome giveaway or enjoy an entertainer and always leave with an incredible experience. As I me
ntoned last time, fans always love the Phanatic and Zooperstars and there’s always a huge demand for giveaways. But a new theme night is upon us and this front office is going all out to not only enterain you, but take part in the night ourselves.
New to the calendar this year is Superhero Night and people around here could not be more excited. The costumes that have been dug up are hysterical. For example, do you have a favorite Batman? Well don’t worry because old-school and new-school Batman will be here. There were some races to the store to be the first to claim certain suits and the ideas of others were so original that their choices was safe from the start.
If you’re coming, make sure you come dressed the part, you might even win some prizes for your efforts.
