Bees Baseball Game

Jill treated us to night out this past week.

We started by meeting at Liberty Park where we watched the geese for few minutes. Then we ate some yummy Chinese food at Sampan.
Then it was off to the game.

The game was actually pretty exciting in an anxious, danger-lurking, sort or way. We were seated a little bit past the third base and only 4 rows up. We had to keep our eyes open for foul balls, especially when a left-hander was up to bat.

There seemed to be an awful lot of left-handed batters and quite a few foul balls. The girl sitting behind us caught one of the foul balls, although it was tossed up by a player, not off of the bat.

About half way through the game, Maya turned to me and said she wanted a hot dog. She told us she was full at the restaurant after eating 4 cream cheese wantons and "a chicken with a tail" (battered, butterflied shrimp). But you know what they say about Chinese food...

She ate the entire hot dog. I thought for sure I would get a bite or two of the abandoned dog, but no such luck.

The Bees gained the lead and lost it several times. We left just after the seventh inning stretch just our team hit a home run and regained the lead again. I learned later that ended up winning the game in extra innings.

Maya said her favorite part was the singing and she was trying to remember the words and sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" as we left.

Thanks Jill, it was a fun evening.

Here are a few more pictures.
