April 18, 2017
It was our first game of the 2017 season! Truthfully, the Webmaster and I wanted to go far more than the kids did. The older boys did a little whining about going. But once we were there, they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
The evening was pleasant, but we knew it would get chilly.
It was both Salute to Armed Forces Night and Jackie Robinson Day.
Our goal is always to keep the boys occupied (and possibly munching) so they don’t start begging for iPads. Thumper really got into reading the numbers off the big screen in center field. He told me every player’s number as they came up to bat. It also helped that the game moved quickly. We even got a flying visit from Auntie during the top of the ninth.
And we won! 5 to 0 over the Texas Rangers! The boys declared that they’d had the best time EVER at the ballgame.
Once again, their parents were right. We told them they would have a good time.
