Ok, so I still think this is one of the coolest opportunities out there for baseball fans. Get this: the Dodgers are bringing back the Blue Heaven Sleepover and are inviting fans to bring their sleeping bags and sleep out on the outfield grass during the August 14 game against the D-Backs in Phoenix. The Dodgers will be providing dinner, breakfast the following morning, and will also allow fans to play catch on the field, followed by a screening of “Field of Dreams” (one of my all-time favorite movies). Are you kidding me? Hell, I’d definitely consider going if Friday night wasn’t my birthday.
But the Blue Heaven Sleepover isn’t cheap: $200 for adults and $100 for kids 12 and under. The event is limited to 500 participants and the deadline to enroll is Monday, August 10.
This experience is part of the DODGERLIFE program which gives fans a way to live the Dodger lifestyle through a series of unique experiences. There’s also a Jr. Dodgers Dance Team, Jr. Dodgers Training Days and a road trip to watch the team take on the hated Giants in SF. Pretty cool stuff.
