GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- Saturday’s game opener brought in sunny skies with warm weather. However, it was a different story for Sunday with the rain showers. But that didn’t stop the fans from coming out.
“It’s JUCO. Its one time a year, you only get one opportunity. Rain or shine, we’re here,” said JUCO Fan Kyle Frodarp.
“We could have worn something other than shorts. Shorts were not the way to go, but we’re here to watch Baseball. It’ll be fun,” said Jessica Rash.
Besides preparing for the unpredictable weather, what other things should you know to help you have a smooth day at the ball game?
Let’s start with everyone’s favorite, parking. It’s on a first come, first served basis. There is a free shuttle to help you avoid congestion.
“There’s nice signs that says “Grand Valley JUCO shuttle stop”. They’ll stop down at Colorado Mesa University and park right there and drop you off right at the club house on North Avenue and run every 15 minutes,” said Jamie Hamilton, JUCO Chairman.
Now that you have parked and are at the gates, there’s one important thing you should keep in mind to avoid being denied entry.
“Coolers are very important because they have to fit in this box behind me. If it does not fit, we cannot allow it into the park. There are too many people that bring in large coolers and then they take up two spaces instead of one and people complain about it. We want to get as many people in as possible,” said Modesto Galvan, JUCO Volunteer and Member of the Lions Club.
Now that you’re inside, what about if you want to buy some food, is it cash only?
“The concession stands and all the vendors have the ability to utilize debit and credit cards. Cash is king, but for the most part, everybody is wired up to do that,” added Jamie Hamilton.
Now that you’re at your seat, the last thing is to sit back and enjoy the Ball Game.
