take me out to the asa ballgame

Princeton U Press editor Eric Schwartz has a great idea for this year’s ASA baseball trip. Why not go to a minor league game? Cheaper tickets, better seats, and a chance to see some great baseball. So this year, we have cooked up the following plan:

Staten Island Yankees: Friday, August 9 at 7pm


  • tickets that cost no more than $25 plus fees
  • two free rides on the Staten Island Ferry, which has the best view of the Statue of Liberty (especially now that you can no longer climb into her head)
  • throwback jerseys given away to the first 2,500 fans
  • amazing views of the Manhattan skyline
  • friendly sociologists hanging out together

If we get a group of 10 together, we can get even cheaper tickets (I know, right?). Please email me at fetner@gmail.com if you are interested in joining us. Everyone is welcome; don’t be shy.

    Hey! The Newark Bears are at home v. Quebec that weekend. Probably cheaper, certainly great seats, and the stadium features tributes to and memorabilia about the previous Newark teams as well as the current roster.

    You don’t get a “free” ride on the free Staten Island ferry–you have to take a train to Newark Penn or Newark Broad and walk a few blocks, or park next to the stadium for $5 a car–but it would be more historic and at least as much fun.

      Tempting as that is, I think we’ll stick with the Staten Island plan. For Wu-Tang.
