Tigers' Game

We got Tigers' tickets back in August when Nora was visiting, but while we were on our way to the game, Jim got horribly sick in the car, and we had to turn around and go home. Someone told us that we could try to exchange the tickets for another game. After a series of e-mails and letters between us and the box office, Jim got a call last Tuesday that we had tickets for that night's game.
We had very good seats. We were just to the left of the Royals' dugout. I took this picture from our seats. A couple innings into the game, the usher came running up and handed Drew this ball. He had gotten it from a Royals' player as he came off the field. Drew was thrilled to have a baseball, and we thought it was cool that it was a real game ball.
Drew also got to try his first Cracker Jacks. He is now a fan!

Drew started to get tired, and since the Tigers were losing so badly, we decided to go.
The Scallys had given us tickets to ride the Ferris wheel, so we did that on the way out of the ball park.
We rode in these little baseball cars.

We had a fun evening, and we were so glad that we were able to go to a game this summer after all!
