A Night at the Ballpark, With a Twist!




Nicholas went to the Marlins and Cubs game tonight with his buddy Kyle. Not only did they see some of the game (school night) they had special tickets (thanks to Kyles Mom - Thank You Tracy!) to go on the feild and into the dugout during batting practice. He was hesitant at first but he changed his mind and had a good time meeting some of the players, watching batting practice and getting autographs.







I think he'll remeber this for a while!

Thank God for the minor leagues! JK :)

Great pics, as one who actually has played ball with Nick I can imagine how great it must have been for him. Good dad, good dad...

cp said...

wow that was the greatest time ever, especilly since it wasnt the lousey yankees, they suk.....thanks dad....love nick....go redsox

gpe said...

So I asked Nic who was in the pictures and they are two relievers and a reserve outfielder...

57 Taylor Tankersley (standing in dugout and sitting on the steps)
22 Matt Lindstrom (signing)
25 Brett Carroll (sitting on the bench)

Hopefully I got them right!

As for our minor leauge team.. it does have its perks. If they ever get a new stadium we'll miss those intimate nights at the ballpark, entire section to ourselves....no traffic jams.....and I love my Yanks but I don't think they'll be inviting me to BP anytime soon. Oh and the minor leaguers have won TWO world championships in the last decade. How many do the choking mets have??????????????????

John Mulligan said...

the quick answer is....go to your profile on blogger and follow the instructions...

First ....you need to have a photo on blogger to reference.

second.... start a new post...place the photo you want to use as your icon in that post.

third ..take all the background info of the photo - ( the info is in the place that u build or edit the post) - and cut and paste it into the according part of your profile

its not to hard to do..
