State College Spikes vs. Jamestown Jammers – 8/6/11

Despite it raining most of the day Saturday, the State College Spikes (Pirates) were able to take on the Jamestown Jammers (Marlins).  The Spikes lost 3-1.  I picked-up a few team sets, photos, and a really good hamburger.  Medlar Field is right next to Beaver Stadium and has a terrific scenic view.  The only thing that bugs me about this stadium are the bees.  I notice that they have a lot more than other places.

State College Spikes vs. Jamestown Jammers

Last night was my second trip to see a State College Spikes game.  The Spikes won their 8th game of the year against the Jamestown Jammers.  Thats great because Jamestown is at the top of the division and State College is at the bottom.  This has to be one of the best minor league stadiums I have ever been to.  I was able to get autographs of Ciro Rosero and Owen Brolsma on my ticket stubs.  I had tickets right behind homeplate.  The giveaway for the first 2,000 fans through the gate was a “Nookie Monster” bank.  Since the stadium is so close to Beaver Stadium I got a few pictures of where Penn State plays.

This looks like it should be on a Topps card.

Tonight I’m going to see the State College Spikes (Pittsburgh Pirates) vs. the Jamestown Jammers (Florida Marlins).  I will be getting a lot of pictures to share with you tomorrow.  Lets hope I can get a few autographs and a team set.  Today will be a busy day, card show in the morning, and a baseball game tonight.  I hope I can get my homework done 🙂
