Frequently Asked Questions
We've got answers!
Following are questions that are often asked of us, along with the answers to them. We hope this will make your next visit to Hammond Stadium for a Miracle game more enjoyable.
When is the best time to get autographs?
Players are not always available to sign autographs. The best time to try and get your favorite players autograph is immediately when the gates open, or immediately following the game as the players are leaving the field. Players will not be allowed to sign autographs just prior to or during the game. Get here early for your best shot. Fans may be asked to move to a different location near the field if they are waiting for players in a seating area that is being occupied by fans with tickets for those seats. Please be respectful of other fans while waiting to get autographs. During many home games, select Miracle players will be available to sign autographs for a period of 15 minutes outside the Grand Slam Gift Shop beginning 50 minutes prior to the start of the game.
