    Default PirateFest

    Anyone ever went?

    Worth the time and $12?

    I actually haven't been before, but bought a ticket for Saturday this year. Figured it wouldn't hurt since it's $12. I talked to the guy at RaiseTheJollyRoger.com as he seems to go each year. He said that the big draw is the free autographs, but the lines are pretty ridiculous and he doesn't even bother with it. Said you have a pretty good shot at winning a prize like tickets or whatever that's worth the price you paid to get in, and it's cool to watch some of the Q&A sessions and games they do with the players.

    They usually sell a grab bag with some items inside a cheap Bucco gym bag. It's worth the effort to show up. I have to work the night shift, as it turns out, so I won't make it.

    I went a few years back because I got free tix with my regular Pirate ticket package.

    It was a complete waste of time.

    IMO of course.

    I'd have rather been fart-slapped than have gone to that.

    I went today. I thought it was a pretty decent event. Dropped about $65 in total, but Made it out with:

    2 infield box seats to any game
    2 outfield reserve seats to any game
    2 pillbox caps
    A gold Pirates hat
    2 Homestead Grays hats
    A Pirates New Era fitted hat
    2 Pirates travel mugs
    A fleece blanket
    2 T-Shirts
    2 Doumit bobbleheads
    2 Maholm bobbleheads
    An Arnold Palmer bobblehead
    A Pirates umbrella
    A Pirates grocery bag
    A tour of PNC Park for a group of up to 24 people
    Autographs from Doumit, Ohlendorf, Morton, Bob Walk, Frank Coonelly, and Joel Hanrahan.

    I also had a nice talk for about 10 minutes just me and Frank Coonelly about nothing in particular. Baseball, my life, his life, etc. and talked to Doumit, Morton, John Russell, Rocco from the postgame show, and Don Long for a couple minutes each.
