Fortunately, the home team won.
Apparently, the home team routinely has Monday matinee games with $1 admission. And $1 hot dogs, drinks and chips.
I’ll have to remember this next spring, since today was the last game of the regular season. The Savannah Sand Gnats did make it into the playoffs. Maybe I’ll pay them some attention.
We just happened to get the paper today for free. And I actually sat and read it. And I noticed the $1 admission, so Bill and I decided that would be fun.
And it was. I love minor league ball.
We also just happened to run into a season ticket holder who was unloading his extra tickets. He gave us 5, so we got in for $3. Spent $11 on hot dogs (Fritz ate three), $9 on chips (Fritz ate two), and $14 on drinks (it was hot).
The key to appreciating baseball is being able to slow down, relax, and not think about all the things on your to-do list.
And having “your” team win helps, too.
