Take me out to the Ballgame

and so I did. Back before the beginning of Baseball season I made a promise to myself to go to at least 1 Major League game. That promise has been kept. The Tigers played the Mariners and won 7-1. There were fireworks after the game. Not a bad way to start the 4th of July weekend.

Comerica Park is a gem, a great place to watch a ballgame. The food was expensive, but very good, of course nothing else tastes like a hotdog at the ballpark. Wide selection of vendors, and most had TVs so you wouldn’t miss much game action.

Then there was the game. I’ve said before that I don’t usually care for blowouts, even when my team it winning. That is still the case, but the game seemed close until the later innings. It was 4-1 until the 5th, and then 7-1 after 7 innings. Even with that, the best play of the game came in the 9th inning with a double play off a fly ball deep to left center. Little Bits and I had a fun time at the ‘old ball game’.

A couple of pictures from the Ballpark will be added soon.

  1. Excellent! Glad you got to keep your promise on a successful outing! Yes, nothing beats a good ol dog at the stadium!

  2. That does sound like fun! I don’t think I’ll make it to a MLB game this year, but that’s ok since it seems my team is out of the running for much of anything anyway. I did make it to an entire season of T-ball, and that was more fun than I could have imagined. And then there were the 3 minor league games we got to go to this year – same delicious food in the night air with that glorious sound of the crack of the bats. Stakes are a bit lower, as is star power… think I’ll make an MLB promise to myself for next year – depending on what my fave team is doing, of course…
    Glad you got to do it.
