Fox Sports Detroit Girls get Muddy
Fifth-Third Field–Toledo, OH: Last Saturday the Fox Sports Detroit Girls blessed Fifth-Third Field in Toledo with their presence (not to be confused with Fifth-Third Field in Dayton, Fifth-Third Ballpark by Grand Rapids, or Fifth-Third Bank Ballpark in Kane Country….my god…). The Girls were on hand to help root on the Detroit Tigers Triple-A affiliate and help support the military, who was being honored all week by the Mud Hens. It’s a pretty fair drive from the Canadian border straight down to Toledo, but if I would have known that the Girls were going to be there, we would have tried to make plans! My window of opportunity for the kids and I too meet them is running out quickly, with the Minor League regular season ending in less than a week. My only hope now is for the baseball Gods to smile upon me, with Lauren and Allison magically appearing at the West Michigan Whitecaps game this Sunday…our last outing of the 2012 campaign. My only other chance for removing the Fox Sports Detroit Girls from my baseball bucket list is if they make it to a Grand Rapids Griffins (AHL hockey) game this winter. The Girls were a lucky charm, too, as the Mud Hens beat the Louiville Bats 5-1.

When you’re at the last Whitecaps game of the season be sure to ask some of the players for their hats, batting gloves, bats, or anything else because they won’t need it anymore.
We won’t be at their last game, but second to last. Thanks for the tip, though, maybe they’ll give the kids something anyway.
Well, here’s hoping the baseball gods — and the Fox Sports Detroit Girls! — smile on you at the last game. 🙂
Kristen-no luck as far as the Fox Sports Girls go, but we still had a great time and had a fun week. New post coming soon. Thanks!!!
