Take me out with the crowd…

Monica and I went to see a San Antonio Missions game last night with our friend Andy. The Missions are a double-A farm team for the Seattle Mariners. Last night was the home opener, and there were under 2000 people at the game. How do they think San Antonio is going to support a major league team if we can’t even support the minor league one we’ve got?

At any rate, it was fun to go to the game, and a beautiful night for baseball. Unlike Chicago, April is the perfect month to see a baseball game in the deep south. Almost all of the games are played at night (although I still prefer day baseball) and during June and July, it can still be in the upper 80′s well after 10 PM, making it really uncomfortable to watch baseball.

We left at the top of the 7th with the Missions leading, and they did end up winning. Here’s some pictures from the game…


I love the 100-300mm zoom lens I got off eBay…


This is Michael Garciaparra…yup, Nomar’s brother. He plays second base.


Evidently Steve Bartman’s mom moved to San Antonio…
