1. Can you still show up 2 hours early and watch batting practice while trying to get autographs?
2. Can I easily sneak in a flask?
3. I am planning on painting my face red and white while also dying my hair blue. My question is should I make my head look like a baseball or just half red and white?

I don't know the answer to any of these, but I'm betting you're going to get a lot of inquiries of "which gate do you want to meet at?" :)

As far as I know, gates open 90 minutes before first pitch for Monday through Thursday games, and 2 hours for Friday through Sunday games. And you can freely go right up to the edge of the field down the first and third base lines at that time.

 

 

2. Can I easily sneak in a flask?

 

I don't know about "easily". See:

Better yet, consume the presumed contents of your flask before you go, and I'm sure it will bring you the mental clarity required to answer this question.

The Whizzinator can double as a flask.

There's metal detectors at every entrance at Target Field, so best make sure your flask is plastic. Maybe fill a baby bottle with your liquor of choice?

All good ideas. I was thinking just a plastic pint.

I wonder what Onterrio Smith is up to these days?

1. Like spycake said, weekday gates usually open 90 minutes prior to first pitch. I'm not sure if the holiday changes that. 

 

2. Short answer, no. Long answer...There are metal detectors and security screening at every gate. Your best chance, as someone else said, would be a baby bottle. There are size restrictions on milk and juice containers for kids and I've seen them sniff check a juice container once. The dad wasn't exactly doing a good job of being inconspicuous about it and the container was 2/3 full. 

 

3. If you're going with the red, white and blue motif, may as well go patriotic on Memorial day and go with stripes!

 

Enjoy the game!

I am looking forward to going to the game. I have always been an autograph seeker as well and am stoked to gain some new one for my collection.

Wrap a bottle of booze in a Subway wrapper, and bring in your dinner like a real man.
