I'm probably getting fired for this.

Every offseason I have to come up with new ideas that get our fans excited. I do surveys, I talk with fans, and I look across the country to find things that will blow our fans away. Ultimately, I have to bring my plan to my owner to get his approval.
After much planning this fall, I decided it was time to present my big idea of the offseason. Here’s how it went…
(I walk into my owner’s office and sit down)
Me… "I’ve got a big idea this offseason that I think you are going to like. I want to give free jerseys and hats to our fans this season and on top of that, I want to feed them for free."
My owner… "Get out of my office. That is the worst idea I’ve ever heard."
Well, this might be the worst idea I've ever had, but yes, I am going to give free jerseys and hats to you this season and feed you for free. And right before the Holiday season.
If you're like me, Holiday gift buying always makes me a little stressed out. Is it the right size? Will he or she like it? How do I do something different than the typical clothes and jewelry? Well the big idea that might work for you that comes with a free jersey, hat, and all-you-can eat food/drink is our new 5-Game pack.
All-You-Can-Eat. You get all of the hot dogs, burgers, brats, chips, soda and water you want for 5 innings. We even provide your own buffet tent to skip the lines.
Free Gifts. Receive a team jersey, hat, bobblehead & two other gifts all for free. ($75 value)
Our 5 Best Games. Fireworks nights, celebrities, America's Got Talent entertainment acts. Last year these weekend nights sold out. The only way to guarantee your seat at these games is with your 5-Game pack. (Dates chosen in December)
Ticket Exchange Program. You can exchange any unused tickets for tickets to another regular season home game of your choice.
Limited Availability. Our stadium only allows us to offer 500 of these packages per game and is not available for the single game buyer.
No-Hassle Renewal Program. Our ticket packages are automatically renewed which will guarantee your perks. If you wish to cancel at any time, just let us know. August 1st in the renewal date.
Highly Affordable. All of this will only cost you $11.80 per game. If you walked up the day of the game you'd pay $9 per ticket and not get any food or gifts. Options- $69 Box, $59 Bleacher
Payment Plan. We even have an easy payment plan that allows you to pay as you go.
With this 5-game plan, you get about one game every two weeks, which is just right for a lot of fans.
In order to reserve your 5-game pack, fill out the form below and we will contact you about your plan. You can also call us at (269) 962-0735. Seating location will be determined on a first come, first serve basis.
And do so soon. This dumb idea is our best offer of the year and over 300 of the 500 plans have already been reserved.
