CAN I PARK?

Yes, in Lot G.  Entrance on 126th Street on the first base side

 

IS THERE FOOD?

There will be food for sale from McFadden’s.  The menu is burgers, hot dogs, fries, chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, chips and cookies.

 

ARE THE AUTOGRAPHS FROM MOOKIE WILSON AND WALLY BACKMAN FREE?

Your admission includes one autograph from Mookie and one from Wally.   Bring your own item to be signed.

 

WHAT ABOUT ED CHARLES? IS HE SIGNING?

There is no autograph session with Ed Charles, and as he is our special honored guest we’d like to make the day super easy on him, so take as many pictures as you’d like during the Gl Hodges Award ceremony, but please don’t hassle Mr. Charles.

 

SHOULD I PRINT OUT MY TICKETS?  

We’re encouraging everyone to print out their tickets so that the line can move as quickly as possible.

 

CAN I JUST SCAN MY TICKETS?

We’re encouraging everyone to print out their tickets so that the line can move as quickly as possible.

 

WHAT’S THIS JERSEY PARADE I HEARD ABOUT?

Wear your best (or worst) jersey, and join us as we march from one end of McFadden’s to the other.  Judges will be on hand to provide commentary on your attire.  All in good fun, and it really is a silly good time.

IS THE 7 TRAIN RUNNING?

One never knows what the Subway gods have planned, but according to the MTA website there should be normal 7 train service between Manhattan and Citi Field.  There will not be service between Citi Field and Main Street.  They plan to run buses.

 

IS THERE A HASHTAG OR SOMETHING I SHOULD USE?

Mookie Wilson, Wally Backman, Ed Charles, Josh Lewin and Mr. Met To Attend QBC15

Updated program schedule HERE (updated November 17th) including Wally Backman, Mookie Wilson and Mr. Met!

WHAT IS THE QUEENS BASEBALL CONVENTION? A mid-winter gathering of fans of baseball, held in Queens. Our design is a combination of “Fan Fest” meets “Comic Con.” The spirit of the day is for the fans to get together, celebrate baseball in Queens, and to bring the kiddies and bring the wife. Events will range from appearances by Mookie Wilson, Wally Backman, Ed Charles, Josh Lewin, panels, trivia, appearances by Mr. Met, Sandy the Seagull and Pee-Wee…and a whole lot more.

WHAT WAS 2014 LIKE? Attendees included Ron Darling, Ed Kranepool, Art Shamsky and Mr. Met. You can see a recap of QBC14 here.

WHAT WILL BE AT QBC15? Here is the updated programming schedule, including the announcements of Mookie Wilson and Wally Backman.

WHEN AND WHERE IS IT? January 10, 2015 at McFadden’s Citi Field.

HOW MUCH TO GET IN? $35

ARE AUTOGRAPHS INCLUDED? Yes, your admission includes an autograph by both Mookie and Wally who will sign anything within reason (so leave your kangaroo home and bring a baseball.)

COOL. I’M EXCITED. HOW DO I BUY TICKETS? Right here!
