New Ticket Employees: Buck, Eveland, Sweeney

Late last week A’s Ticket Services received a visit from three faces more familiar with the field than the phones. A’s outfielders Travis Buck and Ryan Sweeney and pitcher Dana Eveland dropped by to call A’s Season Ticket Holders.


The guys were great! Full of smiles and good nature they called out to ticket holders and thanked them for being fans. Dana Eveland was especially joyous upon renewing a Season Ticket plan. We’ll keep a seat warm for Eveland once he’s completed his 20 year career as an A’s starting pitcher.

A big “thank you” to the players for helping us with our efforts. Check out the photos below to see the guys in action.

Hi ATS,
I know my comments are not related to the message above but I just wanted to ask what happened to the Promo schedule? I am completely bummed about the weak giveaways this year. You guys did not help me out with my budgeting for A’s tickets this season, so it’s looking like we’ll be at 2, maybe 3, games this season. On the bright side for me at least, I’ll be saving hundreds of miles on my car considering it’s 100 miles one way to the Coliseum.
If there are some good player appearances then maybe I can work in a game on those days.
By the way, will there be a Smart Circle offer this season for A’s tickets?

I’m sure it was quite the thrill for season ticket holders to get a chance to speak to a player. A good way to reach out to fans, especially for a smaller market team.

Hi steveinsac,

Surprised you’re not enamored with the 2009 Promotional Schedule.

Bobbleheads, the quality replica jerseys are back, five fireworks games this season, and even a Rickey Henderson weekend. Let us know what you’re not loving. It would be interesting to know.

Hi prospects,

It’s a thrill for us too! Seriously though, this the second time in a few years that players made phone calls to Season Ticket Holders. It’s a terrific experience for all involved, including the players.
