Title: (Round 3 Now Live) Wrigley Field Softball Game DO
Post by: Chapshnell on July 14, 2016, 01:01:08 PM
https://auction.starwoodhotels.com/moments/momentpackages/3164

I/We are putting together 2 softball teams to play in Wrigley field on 8/7 followed by a siyum & dinner at Shallots.

There are 12 players per team.

Transportation to Chicago is to be figured out by yourself. (Jetblue promo time to fly idea?)

Teams will be filled in according to DDF post count

We'll call it Team A vs Team B for now. Team A has 8/12 players filled in right now & I am posting it here on DDF so we can make a DDF softball game at Wrigley Field..

Everything is tentative, obviously this is a bid so we'll see how it ends up & you need to ask your LOR if you can play softball in the 9 days.

Just reply "in" or create a wiki & we'll take it from there.

Play Ball, lets see if this idea will fly

I'll decide when its no longer tentative.
I'd be in for sure is flights are cheap, its less than 125k spg for a team, and I'm put up for shabbos. (Dont like hotels, unless we do a shabbaton DO in it)
If one of these conditions it doesn't mean I wont do it, just that I'll need to rethink.

Can I bring additional family members?
Each member may bring up to 2 guests to the tournament to watch the game, but you will be charged 1,000 Starpoints for each guest that attends. Guests are welcome to food and beverage but will not be given a gift bag or tournament t-shirt. We ask that you let your SPG Moments representative know 72 hours prior to the event. Guests will be turned away if they show up at Wrigley and are not on the guest list.

I'm not either a rabbi, but from my years of experience of living, while flying and playing ball i was never looked down at, but indulging in a big siyum was frowned at.

We recommend that you bring a baseball or softball glove. You are welcome to bring a bat

Each member may bring up to 2 guests to the tournament to watch the game, but you will
be charged 1,000 Starpoints for each guest that attends. Guests are welcome to food and
beverage but will not be given a gift bag or tournament t-shirt. We ask that you let your SPG
Moments representative know 72 hours prior to the event. Guests will be turned away if
they show up at Wrigley and are not on the guest list.

It is a tournament so I am assuming there are going to be 4 teams, I think they sold one team with 6 packages of 2, then put up 2 teams for auction. The final team they put up for sale yesterday as 6 packages of 2. When I redeemed mine it said that there were 6 packages available

Here is an update on my questions sent to SPG.

Quote
How many teams and games are played? There are eight teams participating in the tournament.

 

How many games does each team play? At least two half-hour games, three if your team makes the championship round.

 

How do the games work? Teams and games are determined randomly (partner requests are taken into consideration), each game is a half hour so that everyone gets to play. The winning two teams will move onto the championship round.

 

Standard Softball 6 innings? Each game is a half hour so that everyone gets to play.

 

Interested in both "Build Your Own Team" Auctions? There is no option for an auction to go as a Buy It Now. If you win both auctions it can be worked into the schedule that your teams will play each other.

 

Kosher Food? The contact will order a selection of food from a Kosher restaurant. You are most than welcome to provide your request for food and location. This information will be sent over to the contact for review.

 

Grand Prize? A grand prize of SPG Starpoints will be awarded to the winning team. This number has not been disclosed.

The point of this whole thing is not to play a regular game of softball. Its for the experience of playing in wrigley field. You play a few innings, take a few swings, eat , drink, and enjoy the experience.

OK serious questions know.
Are you allowed to play against a team with women on it.
Are you allowed to tag a women out?
Are women allowed to tag you out?
You may play them, you may tag them out, they can't tag you out. We win.

Are women allowed to tag you out?
On a serious note, the way I understand it, there are 3 issues.

1. Touching a woman out of affection is generally prohibited.

2. Touching a woman not out of affection is discouraged by many ultra Orthodox Rabbis while there are others who allow it.

3. (I'm not sure how to word this one)
Watching a woman do certain revealing moves. The Talmud mentions about a female neighbor coming to your house to make bread and since the man of the house was expected to step out while she needs the dough as her arms (elbows, upper arm) will become revealed, there are certain responsibilities which the neighbor is responsible if something breaks since the man is expected not to be there.

I imagine there are many ultra Orthodox and maybe others as well who would have an issue with men playing sports with women.

if there is a need, most non "ultra orthodox rabbis" will allow non affectionate touching (i.e. shaking hands at the work place)
however, putting yourself in a situation like playing a softball game against women where you may have to touch them, i would imagine respectable rabbanim would frown upon that

interesting that the discussion on this thread was asking about playing softball during the 9 days, and not about tagging out women with a glove, seemingly a far greater issue.
then again, you could get through the game without tagging them, it may just cost you guys some runs :)

Is there public transportation to Wrigley from Midway or only Ohare?

ORD looks fairly simple, ~1hr,  the blue line train for 20 and then a bus to Wrigley. MID actually looks easier as it's just one train transfer and it comes out in front of the stadium, ~ 50 min.

Funny, now that you mention it I do remember that. The train stops right there. I usually Uber or drive to the remote lot, so it's not on the top of my head.

Keep in mind that if you are not on the same team it may be hard to make it to the Siyum. At any given time 4 teams are playing, 2 are eating and 2 are taking the tour so if you are on opposite schedules you will be in middle of a game when they are eating.

Perhaps you can arrange that but will you be able to get in with enough time to eat before the games start? Will they give you your food before the scheduled time?

Maybe you are suggesting doing the Siyum right away and eating later in the day, that would work assuming you are allowed to do it halachically.

Just to clarify; last year from the time they opened the gates and completed the registration until first pitch was just a few minutes long and we didn't see the food until later.

I am not saying it can't be done, only  that you will need planning and determination to (perhaps) pull it off.

I heard that a siyum during shvua shechal bo is different than otherwise during the 9 days.
saw this in a daily halacha email i get:
"Once the actual week of Tisha B'Av arrives, only ten of the guests (besides the ones making the Simcha) may eat meat and drink wine, while the rest of the attendees must eat non-meat and wine items. (Rama ibid. and Mishna Berura S"K 77)"

I think you are misunderstanding the whole concept of a siyum during the 9 days. It is not that once you have a siyum you may eat meat. The siyum is a way of making it into a seudas mitzva which can then mean that some hold you may eat meat. You are bound by the halachos of what will be considerd a part of the seudas mitzva. Having a bit of beef jerky outside and then going in is not likely to qualify.

Heartbreak city.  :'( Super disappointed in that last game. We played a great team but it was such a winnable game!
It was 12 inch not 16, so there were lots of homers this year (onto the wrigley infield) in the final game which was in RF (the first 2 games we played in LF).
We had a bases loaded no out rally and scored just 1 partly because we had a runner safe at 3rd on a tag-up play who was called out for "sliding" (they had warned/suggested we don't slide but in that situation it would've been dangerous not to, and they didn't stipulate the penalty would be an out.)
On the last play of the game, tied bottom last inning, 2 out man on second, there was a tough fly ball our RF dropped, he had a good throw home which was inexplicably cut off by the SPG pitcher.
But I would be remiss if I didn't mention a few foul homers one of our guys kept hitting, a ball i misplayed in the outfield, and a couple guys who were fatigued and forgot how to hit in the last game which happens (I've definitely been there) so all in all it was just a sloppy game, in a stupid field (we went from safeco to coors) and a few bad spg calls/plays. What can you do...

Buy SPG with new accounts, transfer to one central account, transfer to pay back the buyer.
Or just buy an account from a broker and figure it out.

The jersey is so overrated. You are not going to wear it ever again. Is it worth it to pay an extra $100+ for something to hang on your wall at home? (In 21 months since I played I haven't worn mine even once and the same applies to most of our team.)

If I would play this year I would definitely just buy a 2 player package. Unfortunately it is not a good week for me so I probably won't make it.

That being said, I know most people don't agree with me and would prefer the jersey even so.


Individual packages are available on Marriott

Looks like these sold out from Marriott. Still available through SPG.

I've worn mine multiple times, and will be wearing again next week. To each their own. It's nice having a guarantee that you will all be playing together, as opposed to trying to arrange it later.

I am no ringer... Shouldn't be to hard to find an amazing player who'll play on Wrigley for free. Call up a local softball league and ask who their best player is, or a local college/high school etc.

It doesn't work like that tho. One player can barely do anything if the team sucks. (if the other team also sucks its a different story)

When I was there most teams were terrible. And the team already has at least 2 player I know can hit, with a lead off of 4 solid batters and fielders I think you can win.

I can get his whole team but what fun is that. I couldn't play and he was friend so I thought it was a good choice. The best part for him was his kids being able to go on the field and take pictures by the ivy. Yes it would be nice to win and get the points but is that why we really did it the last two years?

it definitely didn't extend the time- i was the highest bidder when the clock was 0 and when the page refreshed it seemed like i won (bc i had the highest bid) until I saw the higher bidder was 111,500.
anyone want to call and complain for the team?

At that rate it shouldn't be hard to find more people.
9K SPG for a jersey, playing softball in Wrigley, and getting food is a solid deal.
Post on DDFB if DDF can't fill it and you'll sell out for sure.

true but if I can get them to just give us the jerseys and put us together as a team for 7.5 SPG then it would be cheaper, easier and I wont have to shell out 110K from my own account ;D

All I paid was 15k which I plan on asking back as a compensation but I don't think they'll give everyone else their points back

15k (for 2 spots) is a better deal than us splitting the 111k so I'd go with that...

Should definitely ask for 12 people that are buying the regular package to be able to make a team and get jerseys. And should get your 15K refunded for the hassle.

most recent update:

Hi Moshe

Thanks for getting back to me. I am definitely on the mend. It has been a rough flu season around these parts.

We are still waiting to hear back from out tech team but have been advised that they are working on this as their first priority. While I am waiting to hear back I have confirmed with my onsite contact that I can definitely ensure you and your friends are placed on the same team. Can you provide me the names of the people that should be listed on this team? I will start this process for you now and make sure everyone is playing together.

I look forward to hearing back from you.

Just got response back from them.

"Good Afternoon,

I appreciate your patience.

I have sent over the names of the players below and advised our coordinator's that these people are to be on your team. We are unable to provide official Jerseys but we have secured Cubs polos for the entire group to be worn during the game. We would need to get the sizes for each of the players below.

I have also attached the copy of the Kosher order form. Please fill this out for your group and I will get it sent off to the catering service right away.
 
Additionally, each player is able to bring along a guest to watch at the cost of 1,000 Starpoints each. We will need to confirm with each participant if they intend on bringing someone to watch. I am happy to reach out to the individual members to confirm this however can you please let me know if you are going to be bringing along anyone to watch?


 
I look forward to hearing back from you."

 Not happy at all. They basically ignored everything I asked for except letting us play together. They never gave me a reason for the error, they don't want to give us jerseys and they didn't mention anything about refunding me the 15k for all this hassle. Any advice on how to reply? @Dan ?

This makes more sense as 8-4-2. and I guess with a time as a 9 inning game could take 1:30 and some 5 innings could take 2 hrs.

Ridiculous!
Maybe that's why with a week left there are still 26 packages left.
I wonder what would happen if they dont sell all of them

Happened before. They drop the price to sell as many as possible. Teams have 12 players each, so if any packages don't sell, they just make some teams a bit smaller.

And they added another few days! These Bonvey people dont understand that the price could be the issue not the amount of time to purchase them.
