Some fun at the baseball park...

 Don and I were pretty busy last week...doing pretty much fun things...Thursday night we decided to go to a baseball game. The nice thing about where we live is that there's so much to do. We live just a few minutes away from the 66ers stadium. It's a single A division base team that's affiliated with the Angels...so we get to see the up and coming players. The San Manuel Indian Tribe sponsors the stadium...they sponsor a lot in our city...it's a small tribe with a big casino in the north part of town.
 Thursday nights are called Thirsty Thursday...beer and soda is $1
 It's a nice stadium...only a few years old...we used to have one a little further north...we went to that all the time when the boys were young...fun times!!
 Of course there's a crazy dancing mascot...his name is Bernie...
 Thursday the game was against the Bakersfield Blaze...their manager is Ken Griffey Sr...Ken Griffey Jr played at the other stadium when they were called the Spirit...our sons still have his Spirit baseball card! The Blaze are affiliated with the Cincinnati Reds...here they are exchanging line up cards before the game... 
 In typical minor league ball...the players buddy up with the Little Leaguers before the game...the wee ones are so excited to be out there getting tips and meeting the players!
It was a nice night for baseball...a little chilly but fun. The final score was 4-0...the Blaze won...they scored all their runs in the 5th inning. 
Don spent some time talking to one of the ushers by us and thought it might be fun to work there next season...to be paid to watch baseball is tempting to him!!
Today we gardened a bit in the morning ...then I was off to the sewing machine and Don is out on the back porch reading...what a life!!We are truly blessed!!
Until next time....Enjoy your day!!

Pretty cool. You are so lucky to have so many activities near you. The mascot is darling. I also did some gardening.
I have a favor to ask. I just entered a birthday card contest. I would love your votes. You can read about it on my blog. Many thanks, Linda
