Another Newbie

Hello Sand Gnats fans,

My name is Tara, I arrived in Savannah a week ago and was instantly thrown into a 7 game homestand. Tonight marks the end of the homestand,  and on top of that it’s a THIRSTY THURSDAY. I am pretty excited at the prospect of finally getting to experience one, after hearing the “buzz” about it for the last week.  The Sand Gnats will finish out their series with the Columbus Catfish, then will be hitting the road to battle the Yankee’s affiliate, Charleston Riverdogs before the All-Star break.     

I am originally from Maryland, but have spent the past for years at Lafayette College in Easton, PA. The move down here has been hectic, but I couldn’t be happier.  I am a die-hard mets fan and am very excited to be working for their organization.

Be sure  to mark your calenders for July 3rd, the Sand Gnats will be hosting a Men’s League All-star game followed by FIREWORKS!!!! Regular Thirsty Thursday sales will apply and it is sure to be a good time. So remember July 3rd- Grayson Stadium is the place to be!

For those of you that don’t know, your Savannah Sand Gnats staff work from the stadium.  Right here at the ballpark!  Sound pretty cool huh?  We’re housed in the small trailer on the 3rd baseline. We work all year long Monday through Friday 9am-5pm, even when the team is out of season or on the road! 

But anyway I’m writing to you from the big back room of the trailer.  Today, Thursday, June 5th, it is currently about 95 degrees outside and around 115 degrees in the back room of the trailer.  Unfortunately our AC broke on Monday and our office has become a hot box!  Luckily the City of Savannah workers have come to our rescue and are fixing the situation as we speak!!  So our staff is really looking forward to tomorrow when the AC will be up and running again!


We’re also looking forward to tomorrow because it starts another homestand!!  The boys are back in Savannah tomorrow night and we’re ready!  Tomorrow night kicks off with Bloomingdale Community Night presented by the MPC and we also have the Savannah High School Class of ’63 Reunion!  Postgame you will be in awe of our outstanding fireworks show!
