“Play Ball” is heard by a group of 52 Robson men several times during the baseball season from April until the middle of August. The “AA” Frisco Rough Riders is an affiliate of the Texas Rangers, which play seven other minor league teams. It’s a first class ball park. Check the park out at http://www.milb.com/content/page. jsp?ymd= 20081222& content_ id=41115036&sid =t540&vkey=team1
For several years our group has attended a series of eight Frisco Rough Riders games during the season. We have reserved seating just behind home plate, high up so very few steps to go down, and the area is always shaded. Our tickets are $152 and include covered parking and “all you can eat hot dogs, hamburgers, brats, chicken sandwich, nachos, popcorn, peanuts and cold drink bar.” To save on gas we carpool to the games with four per vehicle.
We enjoy some great baseball and get to witness an occasional scramble for foul balls. There’s also live entertainment between each inning of the game. Lots of fun for all.
This season is currently over but there’s always next year! New members are welcome. Please contact Paul Giller at 940-262-1001, or email at [email protected] If you are interested in joining us for the 2017 season, please advise ASAP to get your order in for tickets. Deadline for ordering tickets is January 20, 2017.
