CAFAM day at the ball game – 2011

You may remember that one evening last summer we had a block of seats at Hadlock Field to watch the Portland Sea Dogs play.  They had three Chinese players on the team.  It was a great time.

Che-Hsuan Lin

So we’re doing it again!  We have a block of 30 tickets for the July 15 evening game against the New Britain Rock Cats.  New Britain has acquired one of the Chinese players we saw last year (Ray Chang).  The Sea Dogs retain the two outfielders from Taiwan (see right).

Portland also has a player of Chinese/Japanese descent.  Our seats couldn’t be better: 3 rows directly behind home plate.

For tickets, send check made out to “CAFAM” to Gary Libby, PO Box 7227, Portland ME 04112.  They cost $7 each (children and adult).
