Root, root, root for the home team

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.

  1. I'm not a baseball fan, but the Trenton Thunder features Bingo games that keep me occupied for the first several innings.
    Plus, there's crab fries. So it's all good.

  2. I like baseball games. The action is slow and deliberate enough you can really tell what has happened. (In contrast to say football and hockey which can be very confusing:-)

  3. The Sandgnats had a military appreciation day while we were stationed there and it was a fun day! I like minor league ball too. When we lived in Memphis, we actually saw Michael Jordan playing baseball.
