If it’s a beautifull day where you’re at, thank your mom for putting up with all of your crap all those years by treating her to a baseball game. Most Minor League teams have some sort of special going on today featuring teams in pink jerseys and discounts for the special woman in our lives. The pink jerseys worn by legendary teams like the Whitecaps and Sand Gnats get auctioned off to help raise funds to fight breast cancer.
I love watching baseball with my mom. She is ever the optomist. Our team can be down by ten runs, and she’ll just keep watching, never giving up hope. Win or lose, I just think she enjoys watching the game itself, which is great. I have a lot to thank her for, as I wasn’t an easy kid to raise. As bad as my kids can get (which isn’t really bad), I’m always thankfull that they’re not as mischievious as I was. Thanks MOM, for all of your love and patience.

While being sent away for training down south, all you can really do is make the best of it. I did this by taking in some great Minor League Baseball action in some historic cities with great baseball atmospheres.
Charleston RiverDogs: I was able to make it to two games of the RiverDogs here in Charleston, South Carolina. They are Single A in the South Atlantic League. It’s always nice to be at a ballpark for the first time and ‘The Joe’ as they call it is a nice place to watch a game. It’s pretty big ballpark, but you still got a great view from anywhere. I was shut out at getting a game ball and the Dogs beat and lost to the Lexington Legends.
Savannah Sand Gnats: Luckily the Sand Gnats were also in town while I was down here, this time playing the Charleston RiverDogs (maybe they’re thinking I followed them). I love Grayson Stadium, though, as I was here back in 2005 when I was training in Brunswick then. Always a good time in Savannah, and the Gnats played well losing a close game Tuesday night and winning in extra innings the next. I’d love to bring the family down here at some point.
Sorry the picture quality is so bad, but had to pick up a desposable camera while down there. They’re better than nothing, I guess.
