I am hyped for "Chess Night" at the Lakewood (NJ) Blueclaws August 3rd baseball game. The Blueclaws are a minor league Philadelphia Phillies affiliate. I'll be giving a simul at 6:30, and there will also be a blitz tournament at 4:30. The winner gets to throw out a first pitch! My father, FM Mike Shahade, will also throw out a pitch prior to the 7:05 baseball game start time, when the BlueClaws will face the Hickory Crawdads (Texas Rangers affiliate). I'll also be signing & selling Chess Bitch and Marcel Duchamp: The Art of Chess at discount prices.
See the flyer (pdf) here , and the Lakewood Blueclaws blog for more info. E-mail Mike Zaiger at firstname.lastname@example.org to enter the blitz or simul.
I also just heard from Russell Miller that tonight in Oregon there will also be a Chess Night featuring the Portland Beavers and the Las Vegas 51s. Oregon Champ Carl Haessler will throw out the first pitch. See more details here.
Look for an update here with photos and stories from the event.
