Each year, baseball fans around the country watch the World Series. If they’re lucky, they’ll attend one of the games, though tickets can be hard (and expensive) to come by.
Have you ever attended a World Series Game? Were you the main ticketholder or did you go with a partner, family member(s) or friend(s)? If it’s a fond memory, please tell us about it in the comments below the poll. Thanks, and Go ______! (That’s where you insert your favorite baseball team name – we don’t want to upset anyone by inserting ours!).
Oh, and make sure you read this recent article by Kate Doherty – it’s a reflection on the World Series (and Bazooka Joe comics and bubblegum). You’ll enjoy it!
Professional sports and College sports have gone to the WOKE crowd, I would not be caught dead at any sporting event, that crap might rub off on me.
Attitude, attitude, attitude. Pitiful.
Go back to sleep
The last time I went to Major League Baseball game, Ted Williams was still playing for the Red Sox. $3.50 for a grandstand seat.
I’d only consider it if the Mariners were in it, but otherwise, no.
I’ve been to a few major league games. While it’s great to be there to cheer for your favorite team live, you can see a lot more watching it on TV in your favorite chair at home and without all those expenses.
I wonder why it’s called World Series when it’s only U.S. teams that participate. (Oh, forgot about the Canadian team, but it was called the World Series before they joined.)
Little League World Series ! Lol.
I have attended a baseball playoff game. It was one or two levels below the World Series and the tickets were pretty expensive. I doubt that the distance to travel coupled with the anticipated ticket prices would ever fall low enough to entice me to purchase, travel, and attend. I figure at least a stadium-full (35,000 +/-) of people will always have greater anticipated benefits and greater willingness to pay than I ever will.
I attended games 3-5 of the 1992 World Series in Toronto. My best friend Mark Eichhorn was a relief pitcher for the Blue Jays. Attended the games with Mark’s family and a couple of other friends. Blue Jays beat the Braves in game 7.
No, but I did go to 2 Super Bowls when my then brother-in-law played for the Miami Dolphins. Once upon a time, when I was a diehard SF Giants fan, I would have loved to go to a World Series game. Glad I wasn’t at the one with the A’s when the earthquake hit. Scary enough where we were. Terrible day(s).
Never have and never will, don’t even watch MLB anymore since the players are overpaid and under achievers!!!
No interest in baseball. Boring.
Attended game 5 of the 1959 White Sox – Dodgers world series. Largest crowd ever to see a US baseball game except the Roy Campenella exhibition game, which also attended. Koufax vs Shaw. Final score 1-0 Sox.
I was at every home game of the Phillies playoffs and WS in 2008. The last game was a two night adventure as the game was halted midway through and continued two nights later.
Back in the 50s went to the old Busch Stadium for a game then in late 60s to 3 rivers stadium in Pittsburg.
Growing up as a Cardinal fan in the St. Louis I remember World Series day games in high school when a small color TV was set up in the school’s theater and if you had a study hall you could go there and watch. Bob Gibson could just dominate opposing teams into extra innings and was nothing like the pampered pitchers we have nowadays. Whitey ball in the 80’s was another good time. Now in WI I occasionally catch a Brewers game. I’m not much of a sports fan but don’t blame the games – they’ve changed and so have my interests.
Never been that rich and willing to part with hard earned money for a world series. I’ve been to baseball games at Fenway (65-70), basketball games Phoenix Suns the Charles Barkley era (94-97). Now I watch none and have not seen a live game in years my wallet loves me.
I went to see the Cincinnati Reds win the World Series in the 70’s at Riverfront Stadium. Afterwards the thousands of Big Red Machine Fans gathered downtown. It was one of my most Memorable life experiences. Now, I just watch Sporting events on TV. Not into crowds anymore.
Games 6 and 7, 1985 World Series in Kansas City between the St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas City Royals. Game 6 will be talked about for years because of two controversial calls – one at second base against runner Frank White early in the game and the most famous one at first by umpire Don Denkenger in the bottom of the ninth. Kansas City won the game and went on to win the Series in 7 games.
As I told my oldest son about going to a NASCAR race, why spend all that money on a ticket just to be deafened once a lap when I can sit in my recliner control everything I’m watching and the atmosphere around me. I feel the same about watching sports teams, I have the best seat in the house, climate controlled, noise controlled, and refreshments don’t cost an arm and a leg, and no one spills their food and drink on me when they jump up to cheer. I know I’m a stick in the mud, I heard that for 41 years from my in-laws.
I’m not a sports fan but in the 80s a friend called and said, I’ve got a couple of tickets to “the game”. What game, I asked? The World Series final game. Is that baseball? We went to the game and had a great time.
Why would I pay to see a bunch of overpaid athletes? If tickets were in the price range of general matinee Movie Tickets, I might consider it.
