Interleague Play and a Quick Update

I’ve been pretty quiet on my blog lately.  But that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped cheering for my Rockies or watching baseball.  This summer has kept me busy so far and I don’t see my schedule slowing down any time soon. 

Anyway, a few weeks ago, I caught a few games when the Tampa Bay Rays came to town.  One night, was a guy’s night out, with Dad and our buddy Ned.  Here’s some shots of David Price warming up in the bullpen.  He’s on Dad’s fantasy baseball team, so I figured I’d snap a few pics for him.

On the other side of the wall, I also got to see Aaron Cook warm up.

We sat in the outfield eating hot dogs and argued over who to cheer for.  My Rockies beat up on David Price and got the win.  

6.17.09-5.jpgOn the next afternoon, we headed back to the stadium for another game.  This time, we made sure to take Mom with us.  Dad actually won a pair of tickets from work and we got to sit in the fancy club level at the stadium.  It was our first time seeing a game from this part of the park.

6.18.09-2.jpgMom was rooting for the Rockies, but she has Evan Longoria on her fantasy baseball team, so she was secretly cheering for him.  Fantasy baseball can really get you mixed up on who to root for.   
6.18.09-3.jpgDon’t worry, I straightened her out and convinced her to cheer for the good guys.
6.18.09-4.jpgAnd of course, they won!  My guys have been doing great lately.  I just hope we can keep it up and catch those pesky Dodgers. 

My cousin Robert is in town for the next few days.  He flew all the way out from North Carolina.   I love having him stay with us.  He’s funny and I like playing with him.  He was lucky enough to recently visit the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY.  He even brought me back a nice, new hat.

Today, we headed up to Rocky Mountain National Park.

Mail Call #9

I’ve got some more mail to share with you.  This time I got a letter from Mr. Duke Snider.  He doesn’t play anymore.  Mr. Snider is actually in the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.  Here’s what I got.
5.2.09.jpgThe Rockies have been on the road for a while and just got back in town last week.  Dad had some friends in town and they went to see the Rockies vs. Dodgers last weekend. 
4.26.09.jpgI hope to make it back to the stadium soon.  I’m overdue and I think the guys might be able to use my help.

2009 Baseball Hall of Fame Inductees

Two legendary players were inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame today.  Rickey Henderson was voted in on his first ballot. 

Jim Rice made it in on his last chance.

Congrats to both!  It must be a huge honor.  They both played way before my time, but Dad promised to tell me some stories about these guys…  After my nap of course.
