AFCSL News: Out at the Park, Hall of Fame nominations, marching with Pride

Out At The Park May 19!

Once again, AFCSL is partnering with three other great local LGBT organizations, San Diego Pride, the SDAFFL and SD Hoops to bring you the 2012 Out At The Park, a night of baseball under the stars at the beautiful PETCO Park.

The game is Saturday, May 19 and first pitch will be around 7:05 p.m. against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, featuring 3-time National League MVP Albert Pujols.

There will be a pre-game “tailgate” party at Hotel Solamar, just steps away from the ballpark.

This AFCSL-exclusive party is a chance for us ballplayers and friends/family to get together and socialize before the big game. Food and drink specials will be offered by the hotel at great prices.

So come get your eat and drink on with your fellow ball players before heading to the Park!

Come to the Hotel Solamar Terrace, located on the 4th floor and accessible via the Jsix Restaurant elevator. The address is 435 6th Ave in downtown or check out their websites, here for more info: Hotel Solamar or Jsix.

Tickets for the game are $15.

If you're interested in attending, please contact brian@afcsl.org for tickets! They're going fast, so don't wait!
