QBC 2021 Tickets go up for sale...

 



I know we have been teasing the date when the tickets go on sale for QBC 2021 on Saturday November 13th 2021 at Mulcahy's Pub and Concert hall. Finally here it is. Saturday. September 25th. Noon. That's right it's tomorrow at noon. We did what you guys have asked in the past to just have General Admission tickets so if you don't want an autograph you don't need to have to pay for one in your Ticket price. We made the auto's and inscriptions ala carte so folks could pick and choose what they want easier. Press Release here.

If you go to QueensBaseballConvention.com  now, you will see the "Buttons" so you can go buy tickets. Those buttons are active but the eventbrite site won't be until tomorrow. It's not broken, it's just not ready to go yet, but I needed to be able to have the links ready for tomorrow. I tried to do this when I had my free time and wasn't at work. So, don't forget. Tomorrow. Saturday. September 25th. Noon. QBC tickets go on sale.

Also visit QBCMerchstand.com for QBC tee and sweatshirts. I'll be adding another design there in a few days if you wan't to wait on it. Thanks for the continued support.

Queens Baseball Convention Releases Ticket Pricing for 2021 Event

September 23, 2021 – Ticket prices for the 2021 Queens Baseball Convention were announced earlier today with organizers touting their new ala carte options.

The new ticketing option allows fans to purchase a General Admission ticket by itself, without needing to purchase an autograph as well. Autograph fees have now been separated out and are available on a per guest basis.

“During our first several years the only way to attend the QBC was by buying a ticket and autograph package” explained co-founder Dan Twohig. “Because of the limited size of prior venues we were not able to offer just a general admission ticket. Now that we have moved to Mulcahy’s, a venue with a much larger capacity, we can add that option.”

General Admission tickets will be priced at $25 per person (plus tax and fees)

With this new option we hope to attract a lot more Mets fans to come out and enjoy the day with us,” continued Twohig’s partner Keith Blacknick. “The new pricing allows families to come out at a very affordable price. Of course autographs will still be available, just with their own fee now.”

Autograph pricing was announced as follows:

  • Ron Darling solo autograph $40

  • Gary Cohen solo autograph $40

  • Ron & Gary combo autograph $75

  • Todd Frazier solo autograph $25

  • Gary Cohen Inscription “It’s Outta Here” $20

  • All other inscriptions $10

    PSA will be on hand to authenticate any signatures (separate fee).


    Tickets are expected to go on sale within the next few days at 
    www.QueensBaseballConvention.com

QBC: Shannon Forde to be honored with Gil Hodges Award.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Queens Baseball Convention Announces Shannon Forde as the 2021 Recipient of the Gil Hodges Unforgettable Fire Award

September 22, 2021 – Organizers of the Queens Baseball Convention revealed today that former New York Mets Senior Director of Media Relations Shannon Forde will be the recipient of the 2021 Gil Hodges Unforgettable Fire Award to be presented at 2021 QBC on November 13th.

Forde tragically passed away from breast cancer in 2016 at the age of 44.

A pioneer for women in baseball, Forde rose through the ranks in the Mets media department where she had worked for 22 years, establishing connections with players, reporters, and executives across all of baseball.

Her love of the Mets, and her love of baseball, was evident in everything she did throughout her career, from shepherding green- eyed rookies around Shea and CitiField, to running the 2013 All-Star Game, to being the point person on numerous charity endeavors (including Tuesdays Children after 9/11).

Forde was also instrumental in getting the Mets media department to recognize non-traditional media outlets such as bloggers and independent websites.

Without Shannon, there may not have been a QBC” stated co-founder Keith Blacknick. We were part of the extended Mets community and Shannon always treated us as such. She helped us establish our credibility and we will always be indebted to her for that.

The Gil Hodges Unforgettable Fire Award was established in 2014 in cooperation with the Hodges family. Presented annually to a person whose memory eternally warms our hearts, brightens our spirits and lights our way, as well as brings together the best elements of sportsmanship and humanity. Past recipients have included Gil Hodges, Tom Seaver, Ed Charles, Bud Harrelson, Bobby Valentine, and David Wright.

A member of Fordes family will be accepting on her behalf at the 2021 QBC to be held on Nov. 13th at Mulcahys Pub & Concert Hall. Tickets are expected to go on sale later this week.

QBC: The 2021 Gil Hodges Award Recipient.

 


At every QBC we present the Gil Hodges Unforgettable Fire Award to a person who exemplifies the spirit that Gil had. Past recipients have been Gil Hodges, David Wright, Ed Charles, Tom Seaver, and Buddy Harrelson.

 He Warms Our Hearts, Brightens Our Spirits, and Lights Our Way Still.” This is what is inscribed on each year’s award. The inscription couldn’t be more apropos for this year's recipient. This year’s recipient was instrumental with getting bloggers to be recognized by the Mets. This year’s recipient put themselves into their work with the Mets and the Mets community. This person was loved by all they met. This person was amazing to their family. This person was amazing to their extended family. In other words, this person was amazing in general. If it were not for this person, there might not be a QBC today.

The QBC’s Gil Hodges “Unforgettable Fire” Award committee is proud to announce that they are giving this award to a person who, when she passed away, left a hole in many, many people’s hearts. We are proud to give this award to Shannon Forde. Shannon Forde was an exemplary person. She worked tirelessly to make the Mets organization, Mets players, and the Mets community better. I honestly can go on and on about Shannon but we will save this for November 13th 2021.

If you have any memories of Shannon Forde and would like to either write or film a few words about her please do and send it to me at Mediagoon@gmail.com.
