@QBConvention: QBC 2020 Ticketing


I just wanted to talk to you guys about how we are setting up ticket prices this year. I am also going to explain some things with the tickets. We have listened to the folks from the past few years that have asked us to just do an admission ticket into the QBC. We have also added a kids ticket for children 10 years of age and under. Right now we are also working on to see if we are going to have admission tickets with autographs attached to them as admission/autograph packages  or if we are just going to  have the autographs as singles or in their own combo groups.

Ticket prices are going to be slightly higher this year due to us having to pay a venue use fee for Mulcahy's. We also have to pay for the players.their flights, accommodations, and travel to and from the QBC. We try to keep the costs as lean as possible so we can keep the prices for the tickets as lean as possible. We are fans. We want to keep the QBC experience as affordable as we can. Dan and myself put our whole being into running this event every year. If you have gone to past QBCs you know I am all over the place. I have full goon coverage. If something comes up I am over there as fast as I can get there. We have great volunteers who are all my friends who give their time up to help us out. Please be nice to them. They are fellow fans that want the QBC to succeed and really like helping other fans out.

That being said, the QBC 2020 should be a lot of fun. We are nailing down the talent right now and we are hoping to have tickets up for sale this week.

Thanks in advance for the support guys.

Minor League Baseball Grows Copa de la Diversión in 2020


Minor League Baseball Grows Copa de la Diversión in 2020
Organization Builds Formula of Success Celebrating U.S. Hispanic Fans and Communities
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Nov. 14, 2019 — Minor League BaseballTM (MiLBTM) today announced the continued long- term commitment to and celebration of its U.S. Hispanic fans and communities through the unveiling of its 2020 Copa de la DiversiónTM (Fun CupTM) campaign and event series. Each of the 92 participating MiLB teams covering 34 U.S. states will transform its on-field brand to a culturally-relevant Hispanic persona, representing an extension of the team’s and community’s identity. Fans are encouraged to join Minor League Baseball’s ongoing celebration of its U.S. Hispanic communities by using #JoinLaDiversión on social media.
MiLB’s Copa-specific website features each team’s unique identity, including the story behind its Hispanic on-field persona, and links for fans to purchase available apparel for select Copa de la Diversión (“Copa”) teams. Similar to years past, the 2020 participating teams will release their official on-field looks in March 2020 as the second part of the unveiling when on-field merchandise will be available for purchase on MiLB team store sites.
The cornerstone of MiLB’s Es Divertido Ser Un FanTM (It’s Fun to be A FanTM) Hispanic fan engagement initiative, Copa de la Diversión established an innovative new platform authentically connecting MiLB teams with their diverse communities, embracing the culture and values that resonate most with U.S. Hispanics nationwide.
“Copa de la Diversión began as a fan and community-first initiative and remains as such,” said Cory Bernstine, director, marketing and business strategy for Minor League Baseball. “The initiative has become the blueprint for authentic and intentional fan engagement and its growth and success continue to infuse the Hispanic culture into the MiLB experience.”
The fourth year of celebrating Es Divertido Ser Un Fan, 2020 marks the third year of the Copa de la Diversión initiative, cementing MiLB’s commitment to U.S. Hispanic communities nationwide. The campaign had massive success in 2019, paving the way for the 2020 program, including:
  • 1.8 million fans attending nearly 400 Copa de la Diversión games
  • MiLB teams partnering with more than 200 local Hispanic/Latino organizations, donating more than $400,000
    in cash and gifts-in-kind to local Hispanic philanthropies
  • Nearly 20% higher average attendance per Copa game vs. the average per game attendance
    Since launching Es Divertido Ser Un Fan in 2017, Minor League Baseball has continued to reinforce its position as a leader in creativity, innovation and community engagement with its intentional and authentic strategy to engage its U.S. Hispanic fans. In 2018, Copa de la Diversión was introduced with 33 teams and grew to 72 teams in 2019. The 2020 campaign adds 22 new teams and identities to MiLB’s “comunidades” of Copa de la Diversión, plus four rebrands from the previous year.
    In November 2018, MiLB announced an agreement with ECHO Incorporated making it the first commercial partner tied to Copa as the “Official Outdoor Power Tool of MiLB” and the “Official Outdoor Power Tool of Copa de la Diversión” (“Herramienta Oficial de la Copa de la Diversión”). Last month, ECHO extended its agreement with Minor League Baseball and Copa by becoming the “Official Outdoor Power Equipment of Copa de la DiversiónTM” (“Equipos Portatiles Motorizados - Equipos Oficiales de la Copa de la Diversión”). Additionally, MiLB announced a partnership with the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) in December 2018 to become an “Official Charity of MiLB Copa de la Diversión,” making it the first-ever philanthropic partner tied specifically to MiLB's Hispanic fan engagement initiative. Minor League Baseball has raised awareness for the cause through the partnership and LFA’s ¡Adiós Lupus! campaign in ballparks.
    Minor League Baseball will announce the winner of the 2019 Copa de la Diversión (Fun Cup) event series next month at the Baseball Winter MeetingsTM in San Diego.

Mets announce Alonso, Mrs Met, and deGrom Bobble heads.





This is all interesting. Two Alonso bobbles. I wonder which Marvel Character that he's going to be. I also want to know how long the lines are going to be for this and how horrible the security is going to be. DC know jumping into the Mets world with Mrs Met as Wonder Woman. See my last comment about lines. A deGrom Two time. Two Time. Back to back. Back to back. Cy Young award winner bobble head. Hmmm lines?

The free shirt Fridays. I am not going to comment until we see them and I wonder what size these are going to be this year.
