Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Last night was the perfect night for a ball game.  Lovely temperature, little breeze, little rain shower, no bugs.  Lovely night! Sitting in the stands watching the game was so relaxing.

I was so glad to have gotten tickets to the local minor league ball team.  We were on the first base line, right in line with home plate.  I don't think there are any better seats in the stadium.

Our seats just before the start of the game

Mind you, I'm not a big baseball fan but it was a night out with my bestie, not an evening alone on the couch. The tickets were free, so all the evening cost us was gas to get there and a bridge toll.  Cheap for a night out!

The minor league teams do lots of stuff to include the community and the crowds in the ball game.  There were local school kids to sing the national anthem before the game.  And during the game, while the teams change places on the field, they bring selected people onto the field to play games!  Neicy and I were picked for one of the games.  

We had to fly a styrofoam plane and have it land safely.  The winner received a gift certificate for Frontier Airlines.  Here's the video:

It was so much fun!

At the bottom of the 9th inning, the home team was down by one run and they were up to bat. There was a runner on first and two outs. Next player comes up to bat, 2 strikes.  Then he swings and hits it out of the park!  HOMERUN and the home team WINS!  Perfect ending for a perfect evening!

Thanks for going with me Neicy!


  1. oh we love baseball...have yet to make it to the minor leagues this year but we have taken in college games a couple times so far...and Cole is playing baseball so seen plenty of those...

  2. How fun that you were picked to sail airplanes! I think minor league games are super fun. There's just so much going on!
