My Visit to a Bats/Mudhens Game

June 23, 2010

On Wednesday, June 23, 2010, the Toledo Mudhens (Tigers) came to KY to take on the Louisville Bats (Reds).  Did I mention, it was the hottest day of the year thus far.  But I digress.  Edinson Volquez was making a rehab start for the Reds.  He consistently threw in the mid 90’s.  The Bats defeated the Mudhens 7-4 in a little under three hours.  Here are a few photos from the day. Please enjoy

Baseball’s Top Stadiums

April 6, 2010

I have had the privilege to visit many Major and Minor League stadiums across the country.  There is nothing like catching a game, sharing a bag of peanuts, and drinking a diet coke.  (I don’t drink alcohol, sue me).  I also know that I am biased as a Cubs fan.  There is no place in the world like Wrigley Field.  The thrill starts on the redline and does not stop until all the players have let the parking lot.  I researched several websites to see what others think about the subject.  They differ slightly but Wrigley is always near the top. Here are a few of the lists including the link to the site. You will see everyone has a little bias.
