MLB Regular Season
"Take me out to the ball game, take me out with the crowd. Buy me some peanuts and Crackerjack, I don't care if I never get back... Cos it's one, two, three strikes you're out at the old ball game." Anyone who has followed Major League Baseball will have a chill racing down their spine at those evocative words. There is no sporting event like taking to the field with your friends and family for nine innings of compulsive entertainment. For this reason, 2017 MLB Regular Season Tickets are a superb gift for the sports fan in your life. Although one or two games a year are played at neutral venues overseas, 98% of the fixtures in Major League Baseball are in the states, so, if you are planning a trip, make sure to add a game into your itinerary, the spectacle is quite unlike anything you can find in Australia.
2017 MLB Regular Season Tickets. It's just not cricket
We in Australia obviously love the cricket but to compare baseball and cricket is a false comparison. Although both are bat and ball games, baseball is much more of a slog fest than test matches in cricket. Batting tactics are secondary to pitching prowess and the captains don't have any field position conundra. However, having acknowledged all that, baseball is a fine game with intricate stats and averages, just that it is different to the sports we are already so familiar with. 70% of the batters get 'struck out for a duck' and only a small minority hit the coveted home run; you'll be lucky if there are two in the game you have stub hub.com tickets to see. This makes the action rather slow in places but when you get behind the partisan crowd you'll feel as much part of the game as the nervous players in the bull pen or on the bleachers.
Beer, ball and bases loaded
As well as watching the action on the diamond, a huge part of going to see a baseball match is the crowd experience. It is normally expected that adults will eat and drink far too much during the game and the stadium announcer plays along with the fun by airing crowd pleasing anthems across the PA system. From old school heroes like Wade Boggs, Frank Thomas and the chemically enhanced Billy Bonds, Cuba Gooding and Sammy Sosa, every generation of baseball fan have their own new heroes and the Major League is the only place to see it. Book your tickets now from StubHub and you will not be disappointed when the Star Spangled Banner singer announces "Play Ball!".
