We had an opportunity to go to a baseball game last week. DH had tickets through work. About 10 minutes after we arrived it started pouring down rain. Fortunately, before it started raining we left our seats for cover. We got to watch the ground crew cover the infield. They obviously have had lots of practice since they did this all very quickly. I think it rained hard for 5-10 minutes then stopped. The sun came out blazing. We stayed for four innings before we'd had enough heat.
Besides the heat, I really like baseball, and quite frankly I think I could sit at a game on a daily basis maybe. We used to go to Milwaukee Brewers games in the early 90s before Amy came along. We did take her to one when she was two months old and one when she was four when we went to Arizona for spring training. I think last week was the next time we went to a game although I may have missed a few. There's just something about being at the ballpark, the sounds, smells, the excitement as well as the relaxation. I even like the food (can't eat it anymore, however). As you can see in the pictures, this is not big league, but it's still baseball. Now I know there are way more important things to do than sit at a baseball game everyday, so that won't be happening, but I do hope we can get to a few more games before the season is over. Amy said she was starting to like it also, but the sun was getting too hot. We all came away with sunburn and a few memories.
