What's the story with "Raise the Chairs"?
Well, in 2016 pitcher Max Compton was hanging out in the bullpen. After the Pickles scored a run and "We like to Party!" started playing, he decided to raise up his chair above his head and start dancing for some reason. He says it was purely spontaneous, but it soon spread throughout the bullpen and then to the dugout. Once superfans Nana & Lance (Section 104 represent!) brought in homemade chair signs...well, you know the rest. Now, every time the pickles score, raising your chair is mandatory for all fans to signify celebration. “Raise The Chairs” has developed into merch items, 3D printed chairs, and even tattoos!
