21-year-old student Pablo Alvarez also experienced a good time at a 66ers game.
“I have always been a fan of the game, so watching a minor league team was a different scene. In between innings the mascot entertained the crowd. It was a much smaller setting than a major league game, but just as fun. One thing I enjoyed is how close we were to the players,” said Alvarez.
