Frankly, this might work out better in the long run, since the only way to ensure you'd get one of the tables up top was to show up like 2 hours before 1st pitch because there was ALWAYS SOME ******* who didn't mind show up at 5 o'clock for a 7 PM game and drinking $8 Miller Lites for hours. If you can get passes now and guaranteed entry to the patio area you could realistically pregame in the lots or at Cork & Kerry's and show up to the bar area in a normal amount of time before the game.
