A fun day in Traverse City
Traverse City Beach Bums vs. Normal CornBelters (Frontier League)
Weurfel Park-Traverse City, MI: It was time for the kids and I to make a trip to Traverse City for some fun and baseball. We hit the Beach Bums game early, so the boys were able to search the outfield and found four baseballs from batting practice!
We still have some time before the game, so we were able to watch some warm-ups and the boys got to visit with their Nana. She doesn’t make it to too many games anymore, so it was a special day to have her there.
The game itself was a good one for the home team Beach Bums. They got off to a good start, as Sean Gusrang hit a two-run homer to put the Bums up 2-0 in the first. The rally was continued by Yazy Arbelo, who doubled, and was hit home by a Jovan Rosa two-bagger. On the mound for TC, Alex Phillips earned the win, striking out three and only giving up six scattered hits. Final: Beach Bums 4, CornBelters 0.
After the game, Brian didn’t feel like running the bases, but the boys lined up for autographs from the team. The Beach Bums give the kids a free team poster to get signed.
While in Traverse City, we also had time to visit one of our favorite summer hang outs, Pirates Cove. The kids and I took part in some go-cart races, bumper boats, and the water coaster. Sometimes I think we just have too much fun together, but feel lucky and blessed to have this time with my kids and family!

I tell you, one of the best parts about reading your blog is seeing all the different team names, The Beach Bums, gotta love it!!!
Yeah, I think these teams really brain storm at times to come up with the crazy team names. Makes the games a little more fun, though.
Can you really have too much fun together? I don’t think so. 🙂 Looks like just the right amount of fun to me.
I can’t believe how big the boys are getting!! They’re really growing up nicely and Brian’s serious selfie cracks me up. Great photos as usual, Mike!
Thanks, Kristen! We do try to keep busy with fun stuff. I hope you like Brian’s Angels hat. His little league team was the Angels this season.
