PRESS RELEASE – The final week of the 2013 San Rafael Pacifics is set for August 20-25 at Albert Park. Championship Week is filled with all sorts of great events and you’ll want to grab your tickets fast, as these events are expected to sell out. Tickets are available here.
The Return of the “Spaceman” Bill Lee
Last season, former major leaguer Bill “Spaceman” Lee made history on a magical August night when he broke his own record for the oldest person to win a professional baseball game by tossing a complete game for the Pacifics. Lee returns to Albert Park for two nights on Tuesday, August 20 and Wednesday, August 21 and will be available for photographs and autographs after those games. He will appear as the designated hitter on Tuesday and on Wednesday, Lee is slated to play a different position each inning, culminating in taking the mound in the ninth inning. The first 500 fans at the Thursday, August 22 game will receive a commemorative Lee bobblehead courtesy of Bradley Real Estate (pictured).
In the words of the immortal Yogi Berra, “it ain’t over ’til it’s over.” On, Friday, August 23 the Pacifics will host Funeral Night presented by Mt. Tam Mortuary. Fans will be able to submit a 200-word obituary of themselves and the winning obituary will win their very own funeral. Submit your obituary to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 18.
Seinfeld fans surely remember the Soup Nazi’s “No soup for you!” catchphrase from the TV show. On Saturday, August 24 the Soup Nazi will be available to take photos and to sign autographs, courtesy of Miller’s East Coast Deli.
2013 Pacific Association Championship
The San Rafael Pacifics will compete for the 2013 Pacific Association Championship on Sunday, August 25. The first 500 fans will receive a grab bag item on their way into the game.
