I just got an e-mail regarding this today and the list of dates and teams is a lot longer than the last time I looked on the SnP website. They say they have 88% of all the teams hosting a Stitch n Pitch and they are also expanding into some minor league teams too. Definitely check again to see if your teams is listed now.
There was actually one in MN. And the dates coincide with when my former host Mom from New Zealand will be here - and she taught me to knit!! I think it might be the day she flies home though…might have to pass
Barbara Paley, marketing specialist for TNNA [The National Needle Arts Association], said, “[B]The Stitch N’ Pitch is the idea of the Mariners[/B]. TNNA took it on in 2006 and made it a program.” (The Tigers played against the Mariners on Sunday).
You’d think the Mariners would be the flagship team that does it every year! :doh:
Anyway, I’ve never heard of this before and it sounds like a cool idea! It looks like the Tigers are doing it this year too! :yay:
I’ve never actually thought of taking knitting to a baseball game, but it kind of makes sense. :knitting:
Every year DH and I go to one game with another couple we know – of course I’m the only needlecrafter, but they’re used to me dragging that kind of stuff around with me. :noway: I think they would only be a little embarrassed.
I don’t think I’ll make this event – I get discounted tickets through work and the days are predetermined – but I think I’m going to start taking my knitting with me anyway!
I can make it to the DC, Baltimore or Philly game! But, I can’t knit with the kiddos with me (2 yo won’t allow it, LoL). So I may have to hold off on SnPs for a few years until she gets a little older.
