For many Solid Blue fans it was a chance to get up close and personal with their favorite players, take selfies, and complete their collectors items with autographs from this year’s lineup.

Nine-year-old Brayden Caroll says while pointing to his signed plaque, “They’re really nice and I’ve got Monk, Fox, well all the players.”

Solid Blue fan Louis Whitt says, “It was a blast, you know. This is what I come out here for. It’s not to get my tickets but to meet and socialize with the players. You know, moments you’re not going to get out of the Big Blue Madness camp out.”

Ticket windows at Memorial Coliseum open up tomorrow at 10 pm, with a limit of two tickets per person. If you’re unable to make it down here, you can try your luck online through Ticketmaster.
