On the front of every major/minor league baseball ticket fans can find their section, row, and seat number. But the message on the back of the baseball ticket may be more important. The back of a baseball ticket warns about the risks and dangers fans may encounter if their seat happens to be unprotected from the field by protective netting. Balls and bats may enter the spectator seating at any time during a baseball game and injure fans. Within the last few years more and more fans have been injured at baseball games.

It is so difficult to choose the best and most fun Prom day date. Prom itself can be very expensive. You have to get the best tuxedo or dress, the guys need to plan a great dinner, and you also need to buy tickets to even get into the dance. So sometimes you need to figure out a fun cheap date idea. Sometimes it’s okay to be a little money savvy, but you also need to remember Prom doesn’t happen very often, so you also can make it a memory that you will keep with you for the rest of your life. Payson had some great ideas for dates that maybe you would want to try some time.
