66ers Team BBQ


I attended the Inland Empire 66ers meet the team barbecue at San Manuel Stadium in San Bernardino. Several years ago the 66ers, Class A affiliate of the Angels, also held this event and it was a decent turnout. This time the place was packed.

The $15 per person ticket included an all you can eat buffet with a chance to eat and mingle with all the players on the team. My main focus was meeting the coaching staff and some of the top prospects.
