Ypsilanti’s Future Is Baseball

Comments (4) 11:55 AM posted by admin |

As everyone hopefully knows by now, the Midwest Sliders of Ypsilanti will be playing their inaugural season at EMU‘s Oestrike Stadium. There is a lot going on right now, and it’s important the excitement and momentum continues to build. It’s important for the City of Ypsilanti to show its support so that when the Ypsilanti Liberators begin playing here in 2010 or 2011, the ground work has already been put in place for success. In order for that ground work to be successful, there’s two important things that need to happen.

And happen now.

The first thing you need to do is start buying tickets. Season tickets, Flex Packs, Baker’s Dozen Packs, Six Packs, and Individual ticket prices have already been announced. Ticket prices start as low as $8 a game for adults, and only $7 for kids Under 13 and seniors 55 and older.

Season tickets will get you into all 45 games and can be had on a sliding scale.

  • Buy one season ticket for $315 and save $45 off game-day ticket pricing.
  • Buy two season tickets for $585 and save $135 off game-day ticket pricing.
  • Buy three season tickets for $810 and save $279 off game-day ticket pricing.
  • Buy four season tickets for $990 and save $450 off game-day ticket pricing.

Flex Packs will get you a dozen undated coupons to any 12 games for just $72. In addition, you get one free ticket to the Sliders’ Sunday afternoon game on May 31st with the Frontier League‘s two-time defending champion Windy City Thunderbolts.

The Weekday Six Pack allows you to choose six Monday through Thursday games for only $36.

Baker’s Dozen Packages come in two flavors with both costing a scant $96.

  • The Division Rivals Pack gets you a dozen tickets to games against Eastern Division rivals. You can choose between games against the Florence Freedom, the Kalamazoo Kings, Lake Erie Crushers, Traverse City Beach Bums, and the Washington Wild Things. You also get a 13th game for free.
  • The See The League Pack gets you a dozen tickets to at least one game against every other team in the league. You also get a 13th game for free with this package.

I can’t stress enough how important it is to purchase season tickets. For every season ticket we can sell, we will receive a $25 credit towards the operating costs of the Ypsilanti Liberators. That may not sound like a lot, but if we can hustle 1,000 season tickets, we have the rest of our matching funds, and we have our team.

BUY those tickets now. The future of Ypsilanti depends on you and your disposable income.

    What kind of concessions will be available? Beer is what makes watching live baseball truly divine.

    I’d like to get a the flex pass or two. I want to support the team, but the city is eating into my disposable income by charging me for shoveling my sidewalk, but that’s another story…

    EMU does not currently allow for beer concessions at Oestrike, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t working around the clock to change that.

    ive got my flex pack and its time for the “oek” to roll out the red carpet as we welcome pro baseball to the huron valley ! do what you can to make sure that pro ball stays in the hv as this could redefine ypsi and her neighbors as this is our time to sieze the moment !

    I agree with howdryiam. I’d like to support baseball but I don’t have any time now that I have to spend it defending myself against unscrupulous city government.

    I wish the person I voted for could do this, but they didn’t get elected.
