Worth The Price of Admission: The Inland Empire 66ers Dance Team

From a fan’s perspective, major league sports organizations can be impersonal.  For these teams, the relationship with their fans is strictly a business affair and one that can be operated from a healthy distance.  There are boundaries that are not crossed and sometimes you feel like their interest in you is only for your financial support.  You don’t get that warm and fuzzy feeling and sometimes you feel like you are only a number to them…your customer number, to be precise.

Now, I am not criticizing them because I understand it is a business and big business at that.  And with an organization at that level, you really can’t allow that closeness with the fans for obvious reasons.  My only point in bringing this up is to say that my experience in going to an Inland Empire 66ers game is the complete opposite.

I have been out to Arrowhead Credit Union Park three times to visit the Inland Empire 66ers and I can honestly say that as a fan, you do feel a sense of community with this team.  Every employee that I have met is really nice and you do get that warm and fuzzy feeling with this organization.  Perhaps it is in the nature of minor league sports that they have to get closer to their fan base.  Or perhaps it’s just the people.  I don’t know.  But every time I come out to visit the Inland Empire 66ers, I have a great time.

And the fact that the 66ers have a hot looking dance team is a plus.  The Inland Empire 66ers Dance Team is definitely worth the price of admission.
