My annual baseball trip was definitely a fun one. We checked into the Rennaisance Hotel right around the start of the evening game on Friday. I thought the view would be pretty distant, but I have to admit, I had a nice view. In addition, there’s something to be said about being able to sit and watch the game in a nice reclining chair, while feeding my six week old son Devin.
Saturday I also got to sit and watch batting practice, a treat I hadn’t done in quite a while. I remember going to Tiger Stadium with my dad and making sure we were there at 11 am for the 1 pm game so I could watch the players practice. We sat about 30 rows up near first base, and the Jays won for the second time in a row while I viewed them. I also got to watch batting practice on Sunday shortly before checking out.
What I also found interesting was no matter when I looked out on the field, someone was out there working on it. Even at 5 am.
Anyway, definitely a fun time in Toronto. I also played Settlers of Catan for the first time, and had a blast. I made a point to add it to my Amazon.com Wish List.
To top off the weekend, I got to listen to the Tigers beat the White Sox on the way home. Looks like they’ll make it two in a row as they’re safely in front of the Indians tonight. Mike Maroth is throwing a nice game.
