This unique all-access forum will run through the end of the Dillas 2010 season including the post season. “We (Dillas) are constantly trying to find ways for our fans to be heard”, Dillas Assistant General Manager Dave Kost said. “We wanted to create a forum where fans and residents can express thoughts and ask questions about their baseball team and more importantly, get answers that provide them with an inside look at our organization”, Kost added.
For some people inside the baseball community, this approach may be considered too revealing of the inner workings of a professional sports organization, but the Dillas pride themselves on being a loyal community partner and feel that, because of this commitment they are not immune to public opinion. “Everyone has heard the age-old saying that there is always three sides to every story your side, their side, and the truth well, this forum will allow expression of all three”, Kost said.
Everyone who submits a question will receive two (2) Fan Flex Tickets to be guests of the Dillas during any regular season home game. To receive your tickets, inquiring minds will need to provide their full name and mailing address along with their question for the Dillas at email@example.com. Only the first name and first letter of the last name will be used in the forum to protect the privacy of individuals. Tickets will be mailed directly to homes or place of business beginning May 1, 2010.
