Take me in to the ballgame...
Alondra took in her first Twins game today. It was beautiful outside, so it made me even more eager for the day our new ballpark opens. We missed seeing Scott Baker's near perfect game by only 12 hours. There's a Gophers football game this evening so they started playing baseball at 11:10am.
While I was entertaining Alondra in the concourse, one of the ushers said that they'd stop the game at 3pm if it wasn't over by then. They need to give the field crew time to switch the stadium over for football. Luckily we didn't have to test that theory. Carlos Silva made rather quick work of the Royals.
A pre-game home run ball did make it into our section. It was hit by TC Bear in a home run derby contest. Quite a feat for a guy in a bear costume (we were in the cheap seats). TC also found time to autograph his picture for Alondra. She wasn't quite sure what to think of that.
