Not-so-OT Sunday: SnakePitSpringTrainingFest!!!

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - FEBRUARY 26: Fans gather to watch the inaugural game at the new Salt River Fields between the Colorado Rockies and the Arizona Diamondbacks at Salt River Fields on February 26, 2011 in Scottsdale, Arizona.. (Photo by Jonathan Ferrey/Getty Images)

Time to put the wheels into motion for the one or more SnakePitSpringTrainingFests - hereafter referred to as SPSTF - which will be taking place during the Cactus League. However, the most official event will be Saturday March 24. There are several reasons for this choice:
1) It's a Saturday
2) It's an evening game, so we won't have to endure the worst of the (literally) blistering sun.
3) It's against Kansas City, which means one thing: FRENCHIE!

We will be picnicking on the lawn in right field, showing Messrs. Upton and Francoeur some love, in the way only the SnakePit know how. Tickets are $8 plus the inevitable Ticketbastard fees (which I've just seen, work out at close to 50% if you buy two tickets - really, WTF?), available here - you're all responsible for your own purchases.

Full schedule and more thoughts after the jump.

We are certainly open to attending other games - already bought tickets for the March 12th game over by SnakePit Towers in Goodyear. I have heard rumors that 'charmer is also looking to be in the area, so there's a very good chance of a supplemental SnakePitSpringTrainingFest (or SSPSTF...) being arranged for that in due course. But generally, feel free to use this thread for discussion. What games are you going to?
