Ah, the crack of the bat, the noise of the crowd, the smell of the…pressed Cuban sandwiches? That’s how we do it, here in
Yesterday my family and I went to a Tampa Bay Rays game—I’m the baseball fan in the family, so a summer isn’t complete for me without a game or two over at Tropicana Field in
We like going to day games during the week—the crowds are usually smaller and
we don’t get home at . (We’re fuddy-duddies, I admit.)
We had a great crowd today, more than 27,000. Lots of kids from local camps and childcare centers banging thunder sticks and hoping to catch a foul ball.
My favorite part:
The Tropicana Field roof—and the air conditioning contained therein.
Rays lefthander David Price getting ready to pitch.
Sorry, I didn’t get a photo of the Cuban sandwich before we ate it...
Oh, and best of all, the Rays beat
6-0. And since Rays pitching struck out 10, we all get coupons for free pizza
from Papa John’s!
Rays baseball—an awesome summer tradition. What are you favorite summer traditions?
