Stadiums for PLs 1-3!?! I didn't know that, but I've never been beyond PL4. Is that true?

I have never gotten a stadium from the PLs.
You can get multiple tickets in the higher leagues/positions.

No to both.

In the email you'll get the actual ticket code (the email will call it a "Surprise Ticket")

Use the ticket window in the SB loader, enter the code and press "Check"

It'll tell you what the code is.

That assumes you actually get your ticket.

You know, its so strange how that works. Some people always gets theirs, while others never seem to. Usually mine come as soon as I open the ST on my teams. I think I've only had issues getting mine once or twice since I've been playing.

Who told you that?

When in PL1, you can get QTs, Batting Camp, Training Day, but I've never heard of anyone getting a stadium. Or for that matter, a rookie or lefty either. I have no idea if PL2-8 gets different stuff b/c I was in PL1 when Commish introduced the prizes.

Wow Elf that was something I never knew. So far I have never received anything other than the QT's and in PL1 it was just 3 QT's for staying in the top 3 each season in PL1. Had no idea anything else was ever given. Hopefully I will return to test that someday when the boys decide they want to play again. :)

The top 3 places in PL1 get a 3-pack of QT's and even if you placed third, your e-mail will say it's for "winning" PL1, LOL. All others who move up a league will just get 1 QT and it could be any thing except stad's,lefties or rookies. The only batting camps and training day tickets I ever got were only in PL1.

I also would like to say how great it is to have DarkElf back posting again. I just think it's so cool that you are willing to help us with our questions about how this game works. I read every post you make and take it to heart, as you all should....the man is a genius!:biggrin5:

I agree wholeheartedly, Jim. DE has such a keen insight through the stats he collects for his team. The analysis he provides is also very specific. None of the "I saw this happened and I think it's because this..." Just the facts.

On the subject. I have never heard of anyone ever getting a stadium. Perhaps the person who had passed this knowledge on to jwizz (or the person who got this information and then passed it to the person who passed it on to jwizz...etc.) had been mixed up and had gotten Centennial at the time they won one of those upper leagues (or some other anomaly).

In other words, I'm just a geek. :smile5: Thanks, guys.

On the subject of getting Batting Camp and Training Day tickets as prizes, keep in mind that these are SINGLE USE versions of these tickets.

No offense meant. I really appreciate your help, probably more than you know. Besides, I think I might be the bigger geek. I just haven't had the time to put it all together they way I think you have.

Of course not. Real geeks view that as the supreme form of flattery! :)

"You're a geek!"

"Why thank you so much, that's kind of you to say."

I have a lot of friends who work at NASA (I used to live in DC). They think I'M the geek. LOL

Gotta go to work now. Later.

Thanks for all your help, and I second Jim's post.

I don't know Dark Elf either, but I can say I learned much from reading his posts. Especially the one about finding your pitchers.:cheers2:
