I have been contemplating making the four hour journey to Des Moines for a while now, and with today's news that Kris Bryant will be joining the team, I decided that I'm just going to do it. They play a double header against Omaha on July 1, with the first game having $4 GA tickets. I'm thinking about buying some reserved seats for the 7:05 game, but just doing the GA route for the 12:05 game, but here are some questions for any/all.
1. Do players typically sign autographs before the games?
2. If they do, would I have any chance at an Alcantara/Baez/Bryant?
3. What is there to do in Des Moines between games?
4. Any other recommendations from I-Cubs vets out there?
