More Nuts (Fans) At Jackson Field – 100% Capacity, June 1st
Take Me Out To The Ball Game. Take EVERYBODY!
There are somethings you love to hear at a baseball game.
The crack of the bat.
An umpire yelling, "Striiiiiike".
Vendors screaming, "Peanuts, Popcorn, ICE COLD BEEEEER HEEEEERE".
And EVERYBODY singing the 7th Inning Stretch.
"Take me out to the ball game...take me out with the crowd".
That everybody part is key because for that song to work EVERYBODY has got to sing it.
For that...we're going to need Jackson Field to look like this.
And maybe a little of this.
Ask and you shall receive.
