Ginger I got invited to a couple’s (Brian and Karen) house for dinner a few weeks ago, and one serindipity was that Brian had four Rangers tickets and only two other guys lined up to go so far. He asked if I wanted to go, and of course I said yes. Well, it turns out that the ticket was for a game against the Red Sox, my favorite AL team. No, I didn’t jump on the Red Sox Nation bandwagon after they won the World Series in 2003 – I’ve been a fan ever since the 1970s when they had Yastrzemski, Fisk, Lynn, Rice, Tiant, etc.
So… along came Wednesday, July 22, so I left work at about 9 seconds after 5:00 so I could get to the Ballpark early to walk around, take pictures, etc. Our seats were on the first level, just under the overhang almost directly behind home plate. The Red Sox didn’t mount much offense, losing 3-1 in this last game of the 3-game sweep in Arlington. Oh, well, it was a pretty good game, and it’s always great to go, especially for free. And as an added bonus, it was only 87° at game time, about 10-15° lower than I expected.
