Many have asked about what the details are for Saturday’s Red-White practice. It will be earlier than usual, with the practice starting at 9:15 a.m. until 11:15 a.m. on the upper fields across the street from Walkup Skydome (and it will move inside with bad weather). Big crowds are expected, so take that into account.
In addition, the autograph session before practice is for kids 12-and-under. That will be held in the Skydome. Gates will open at 7:30 a.m., with the session running from 8:45 a.m. until 9:10 a.m. Space is limited and lines will be cut off to make sure all people in each line can be accommodated in the time allotted.
As for the crowd, here is the text from the press release to help relieve the traffic jam: “Fans coming from the Valley should take the McConnell exit (#341) off I-17 just past the Interstate 40 interchange. Make a right turn at the stop sign and proceed to Pine Knoll. Make a right turn onto Pine Knoll, then in to the large parking lot on the right for shuttle service to the fields. Buses will be leaving every 5-10 minutes from the lot.”
