By Geoff Stoddart, Director of Social Media --

Forget what that groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, says. Forget the images you’re seeing on TV about snow storm Nemo. For Angels baseball fans, spring has strung! Pitchers & Catchers officially reported to Tempe Diablo this morning for the start of Spring Training! Baseball is back!

With today’s start of Spring Training, the countdown to the Spring training Fanfest begins in earnest. This year’s event is going to be absolutely amazing! Our special guest include Angels owner Arte Moreno, GM Jerry Dipoto, TV announcer Victor Rojas, Tim Mead, Kole Calhoun, Randal Grichuk, and Travis Witherspoon . There is also a little surprise we're still working on! You won’t want to miss it!

As we mentioned a couple weeks ago, the overwhelming response to the event pushed us out of the room we used last year and into the Fiesta Resort’s Grand Ballroom! This move has allowed us to increase the capacity of the event to well over two hundred, which means seats are still available.

The deadline for purchasing event tickets at the current rate is this Friday, February 15, 2013. The current rate is $30 for adults and $15 for children. Event tickets include adult dinner options of Blackened Fish Tacos or Chicken Enchiladas complete with salad and desert (vegetarian meals on request). The children’s meal is chicken tenders, salad and dessert.

Beginning on Saturday, February 16, 2013 the price increases to $40 for adults and $20 for children. It is because of this that we strongly encourage you to purchase your tickets prior to the 15th.

To reserve a seat in the ballroom for dinner and for our main event, please send payments via PayPal to:

Still haven’t booked a hotel for the weekend? We would like to remind everyone that we have secured a special guest room rate at the Fiesta Resort of $129.00 plus tax for Fanfest attendees. Each individual guest must make their own reservations by calling our toll-free number 800-528-6481 by Friday, March 1, 2013. When calling to make your reservation, you must identify yourself as part of the Group. All reservations must be guaranteed and accompanied by a first night room deposit or guaranteed with a major credit card. The discounted rate is subject to availability.

Only 33 days to Fanfest! Don’t miss out!
Love to hear what you think!
