Take Me Out To The Ball Game

Our favorite baseball team the Seattle Mariners were in Boston this past weekend for a 3 game series against the Boston Red Sox. We bought tickets on eBay and went to the game on Sunday. We decided to show up early to watch batting practice. We stood along the left field line and watched and waited to try and get a ball. Finally after almost an hour JJ Putz (Mariners closer) came over and handed us a ball. What a great souvenir. An actual MLB baseball with grass stain and all. Fun times. The heat! Oh, the heat. It was 98 degrees Sunday afternoon but with the humidity the temperature felt well in the 100's. It was gross. Not quite as hot as one of the games we went to down in Baltimore last year, but hot regardless.

The Mariners of course lost the game 2-1. It was a little disappointing that they couldn't pull it out but at the same time it isn't surprising. They are the worst team in baseball this season, nothing is going right for them. But we had fun going out and supporting them anyways. We had great seats and sat by nice people and not obnoxious fans which is always a bonus.

Fun! The game we went to a few weeks ago was freezing. I would much rather the heat. That's what it's supposed to be like at a baseball game.
So sorry your team lost. :)
we feel for you.
