ISOTOPES RELEASE 2013 GAME SCHEDULE
I don't know about you but I have had enough off season, and am ready for some baseball.
Today the Albuquerque Isotopes the Triple-A club of the Los Angeles Dodgers released the 2013 game schedule.
The Isotopes begin the season on Thursday April, 4 against the Iowa Cubs.
For those of you who like fireworks there will be 15 fireworks nights in 2013. Here is something funny, my wife, and I have had season tickets for the Isotopes since the Dodgers returned in 2009, and we have only watched fireworks once. Just not our thing we are there for the game.
There will be eight weekday afternoon games. I love afternoon games, that's when I take my best pictures. I guess I will be calling in sick to work atleast eight times in 2013.
Isotopes General Manager John Traub said about the schedule “This might very well be the best schedule in franchise history,” “We’re excited about the great dates we have and that we are able to respond to so many of the things that the fans ask for – namely fireworks, day games, and maintaining family affordability. We have very high hopes and expectations as we begin our second decade in Albuquerque.”
The Isotopes also announced that ticket prices will remain the same!
I would like to suggest that if you are a Dodger fan, you should try to make it out to Albuquqerque and check out the best Minor League Park in the world and the Dodgers Minor Leaguers.
So check out the schedule and make some plans to visit Albuquerque!
