    Re: Baseball tie-ins

    Doesn't CA have 5 baseball teams? Giants, As, Dodgers, Padres, and Angels? You'd think there'd be more rivalry... or less teams.

    A's fans, incidentally, for the most part hate the Angels, and since Disney owned them for a spell, we don't care much for seeing Disney represented at the Coliseum. I speak in generalities of course, but there exists an intra-divisional rivalry twixt the A's and Halos, that can get quite heated (see the recent 'throwing behind' Guerrero incident).
    The A's vs. Angels rivalry is bad, but it doesn't hold a candle to the Giants and Dodgers! Although I have to hand it to the A's fans. They don't attract near as many people to their games (Even though I am an Angels fan it is sad seeing that upper deck empty) but they are just as loud if not louder than the Angels fans!

    Hooray for A's fans on micechat! I agree that Mickey wouldn't go over well with A's fans - there's even a hidden anti-mickey in the renderings for the new ballpark. I'm going to go back to sulking about being 12 back.

    And pardon me for some redundancy here...but we welcome all baseball fans to our ongoing talkin' baseball thread. We don't see many A's fans over there. You are all welcome!

    Re: Baseball tie-ins

    Summizing:

    Good Idea: The ears giveaways, the character appearences.

    Bad Idea: A's fans hating anything Disney.

    But what about the promotion of "Buy a Two-Day Park Hopper for the price of a One-Day Admission" coupon? Would that draw bidness to the park for fans?

    Re: Baseball tie-ins

    Don't forget, Southern Californians already get a 2-parks-for the price of 1 promotion in the first quarter of each year...pay for one park, come back another day for the second with the final eligible day usually in late April.

    That and AP's make up a big chunk of DCA's attendance.

    Re: Baseball tie-ins

    Angel stadium had a promotion where they gave out mouse ears to all the fans. Wait, those were just mouse ears scampering around the hotdogs & popcorn. My mistake, carry on.

    Actually that's a GREAT idea! They have mouse-ears for everything else. I would totally buy mouse ears with the Angels logo on it!

    Orioles, not Yanks. With the advent of Free Agency that year, Jackson was dealt after he and Finley warred over a huge salary increase. It is rumored that Jackson 'sandbagged' it that half-year with the A's, further incurring A's fan's wrath. Everything seemed to end up OK for Mr. Jackson, however; all things considered . Oops, more de-railment.

    'Family-friendly' Parks (not the Coliseum) and Disney seem, on the surface, a pretty good pairing. How have these promotions fared in times past at Angel Stadium, and Chavez Ravine?

    As I said previously, it would be nothing new for the Angels. See post number 5.

    Okay that's just funny!

    I went to the 1st home game at Angels stadium after Father's Day this year with my dad and family. I think it was the Tuesday after Father's Day (June 17th?). The lovely and amazing Stanley cup was there along with a the Crash-test dummies (the dummies, not the 1990s band). You'd think the Angels would have some sort of give-away for the dads. No they had something for kids. Someone should've have jumped on that... :::cough cough Disney cough:::

    Hell, I'd even buy a jersey. On the back it will proudly say "Ratamir Guerrero"

    That's cool. Just so long as I get one that says "Micer Izturis"
