First Press Credentials at the Stadium

Last night, I had my first press credentials at a stadium. The Dodgers and Mets were nice enough to award me limited credentials for the game in Los Angeles, allowing me on to the field and into the press box — so I wasn’t quite a big boy yet. Didn’t matter, it was awesome.

I went in hoping to meet a couple players and have some real nuggets for stories. I didn’t meet a single player — just a bullpen catcher, a hitting coach and a few writers. Didn’t matter, it was awesome.

There were a few little details that could turn into stories, and the experience was positive overall. Seeing the game from the press box creates a certain urgency that makes the game crispier. It’s professional watching.

I was a little surprised the press paid for their own dinners. And a little hungry to get into the clubhouse and get some good interviews. Didn’t matter, it was awesome.
