TIP: How to Send Fan Mail to Your Favorite Baseball Players
Although it seems most people know this, I have decided to tell fans how to send your favorite baseball player mail. While I hear that there are creepy baseball books and websites that list player’s home addresses, there is a much better and less-stalkerish way to reach them- the ballpark! That’s right folks, you can send your favorite player mail and it will go directly to the clubhouse. Pretty fancy, right?
Mat often brings his mail home to open. While the vast majority of it consists of requests for cards to be signed, he’s received everything from pictures drawn by kids (see below- these are clearly AWESOME) to japanese toys to hate mail (not awesome- let’s not do this, guys). I’ve heard of veteran players receiving everything from chocolates to baby gifts to hand-knit blankets. Crazy, right?!
(Let it be noted that not all players sign cards through the mail and some of these guys get almost as much mail as Santa so try not to be too bummed if you’ve written or sent something to one of them and not gotten a response.)
No matter what team your favorite player is on, you can most often address your mail using the following format:
Using Mat as an example:
℅ Reds Clubhouse
100 Joe Nuxhall Way
Cincinnati, Ohio 45202
Simple enough, right?
There’s always a creepy way and a non-creepy way to interact with your favorite ballplayer so I hope you find this useful.
p.s. Swimfan was a creepy movie. Let’s not be swimfans.
