Social Media Night Aug. 20: Altuve, Brownie, J.D…and dinner!
We interrupt our ongoing look into the Astros’ farm system for this public service announcement, reminding you about Social Media Night this Saturday (Aug. 20).
This will be the fifth of six Social Media Nights in 2011. The special guest will be second baseman Jose Altuve, who will join us in the Budweiser Patio (behind center field) from 5-5:15 p.m., prior to the 6:05 start time with the Giants. Altuve will hand out autographed baseballs to the Twitter trivia winners and will pose for pictures with the winners as well.
Tickets cost $45 and include a game ticket in the Bud Patio, dinner, t-shirt, ballpark tour and batting practice viewing. And we’ve added one more element to the Social Media Night experience — a free raffle. Once everyone is assembled in their seats on the patio, we’ll throw all of the names into a hat and draw one from the pile. The winner will be whisked off to the press box at some point during the game to watch an inning from the television booth with Brownie and J.D. Jeff Bagwell also does Saturday home games in the booth, so presumably, you’ll be meeting him as well.
We also invite all attendees to take pictures and blog about their experience at Social Media Night, and we will post all entries on Footnotes.
