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 players, panels, trivia, mascot appearances…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?
We are working on the particulars now, but it’s safe to assume players, panels and mascots.
WAIT YOU WANT ME TO BUY TICKETS AND YOU CAN’T TELL ME WHO IS COMING?
We’re not trying to be annoying. We are trying to make this bigger and better than last year. We could hand in the same type of event as last year and it would be great again.
The hope here is that we now have credibility with you, and by selling advance tickets we will have more working capital to grow the event…specifically players.
OK, I GET IT. WHEN AND WHERE IS IT?
January 10, 2015 at McFadden’s Citi Field.
HOW MUCH TO GET IN?
ARE AUTOGRAPHS INCLUDED?
We are working with player reps but the plan is that like last year your admission will get you two “free” autographs. We will make sure the players are of similar caliber to last year (which were Darling and Kranepool.)
We may be able to get more players to come if we work out some other scenarios. So maybe “Joe Player” comes, does some panels, and if you want his autograph too you can go to a table and pay some amount. And if autographs (beyond the two mentioned above) don’t interest you then you don’t have to spend extra, but the player is still there and maybe does some panels.
This is the part where you guys buying in advance off good faith and last year’s reputation helps us make it bigger and better by giving us working capital to reinvest in this part.
I LIKE THAT LOGO. THAT WOULD LOOK GOOD ON A T-SHIRT.
We’re kicking things off with a ticket and tee offer. $45 gets you in the door and you get your t-shirt day on the day of the event (extra $2 for larger sizes.).
COOL. I’M EXCITED. HOW DO I BUY TICKETS?
