I went to my first SU baseball game a couple of weeks ago with some non-SU alumni friends of mine. I had brought them to a basketball game in the past, but never to a baseball game. All of them went to fairly large Division I sports schools, and they were pleasantly surprised to see a Division I Baseball game.
We had played the BYU Cougars. Although SU had lost the first 3 games of this series against a tough opponent, that did not stop me and my friends from travelling to Bannerwood Fields, Seattle U baseball's eastside fields, on a beautiful, sunny Saturday afternoon to watch my Redhawks for the first time. They played an outstanding game with a strong offense scoring 5 runs, and only letting 2 runs in for BYU in the final inning of the game. In addition to the game itself, there was a strong showing of Redhawk alums, which was good since BYU seems to travel well and had a good cohort of their own fans at the game. It was well attended!
On a side note, for an extra $3, your admission ticket got you a hotdog, large soda, and popcorn! You can't find a better deal anywhere else for a baseball game. Try to beat that, Safeco field!
