Pre-Game Party

We are changing it up this year and we will be having the pre- and post-party at Deuce’s and the Diamond Club.  We’ll meet before the game to distribute tickets, name tags and wristbands. We will be there as early as 11:00 a.m. to start the festivities. We have secured an area on bottom floor in the middle of the bar for the pre-party, so please make your way there to pick up everything.

Why “Taylor Day”?

“It’s important to mention that Taylor Day is not a celebration of Taylor, rather a celebration of friendships new and old. A celebration of life and the pursuit of happiness. A celebration of a great city and a great country and all of the freedoms that it provides us. A celebration of a beloved pastime. Taylor Day isn’t a product with the aim of making a profit; it’s a product to promote goodwill.”

As Taylor Day grows in popularity so does the opportunity to do some good with it…an opportunity to make a difference.  What started years ago with 15 people at a ballgame, has grown to a philanthropic event with an ever-expanding horde of enthusiasts.  We hope you continue to participate for years to come and enjoy good friendships and great fun…but know that you are doing much much more.

See you at the ballgame!
