Saturday afternoon I was sitting pretty (i.e. eating and drinking) on my perch at the PNC Diamond Club at Washington Nationals Park for the 2nd game of the 3-game series between the New York Yankees and the Washington Nationals.
Unfortunately I forgot my camera when I went to the game so all the pictures I have a from my iPhone. Once again, I went into the game expecting to see Bryce Harper do something special. After 14 innings, I left feeling a little frustrated that I hadn't seen the special player that everyone raves about.
One special thing that happened at the game was when Eric Chavez hit a foul ball that went into my section. The older men sitting at the table behind me couldn't catch the ball, so it fell right behind me. I had to lunge, but I was able to get the ball! Now both of the baseballs I have are from Yankees! The first was from Alex Rodriguez, when he tossed me one in Minnesota (i.e. at a Twins game) and now this one from Saturday,
Yankees won on Saturday with a score of 5-3. It was a marathon, but a great day for baseball!
I ran into Teddy on the way out and although he never wins the Presidents' Race, he's a winner when he's with ME.
