Baseball fun: Round Rock to Help Fans Refuel

Logging on to see how the Express were doing tonight (they were up 2-0 in the 4th) since I didn't go to the game, I saw the headline "Round Rock to Help Fans Refuel". I had a feeling it had something to do with the astronomical rise in gas prices...

As gas prices soar to unprecedented highs at the pump, Round Rock is offering to help fans cool off their pocketbooks by covering the cost of a gallon of gas.

Round Rock will offer ticket discounts on July 1 and July 2 equivalent to the Central Texas average for the price of a gallon of regular gas. For fans, that means a $4 reduction in ALL ticket prices.

General Admission tickets will be sliced to just $2 and box seats to just $8 for those dates. That means a family of four can snag four general admission tickets for just $8.

So, if you're in the area (like Fort Hood...), this is a great opportunity to take the family out for a fun evening of baseball. As a regular out at the Dell Diamond, if you go for the general admission tickets, I highly recommend you bring a blanket to sit on - you'll be on the grass berm, with your choice of above right field and by the visiting bullpen or above left field and the Express bullpen. Right field will be in the sun until the sun goes down. Left field gets some shade early from the Home Run Porch. If you opt of box seats, I prefer sitting behind the screen, which runs from section 117 (3rd base line) to section 121 (1st base line). I would rather not have to dodge foul balls or flying bats, which has been known to happen... Also, as I'd mentioned in another post, the seating down the 3rd base line gets the shade first.

Now, to get this deal/the fine print:

To redeem this offer, fans must print this page and bring it to The Dell Diamond ticket office on or before the July 1 and July 2 games. This offer cannot be combined with any other Express discount.

As a side note, the Express' Independence Day fireworks display will be on July 3rd, since they are on the road on the 4th. It's always been a very night display, and you don't have to hassle with traffic and what-not like you'd get going down to see other displays in the area. I expect to be there.

2-1, top of the 7th...
