Summer has definitely started in my household as we went out for a week night game today. The boys are a little older and so they were able to enjoy it more. My older boy actually asked about the plays being made and my younger one cheered loudly (at the appropriate times). Please understand that this time last year my older boy would have just sat there saying how loud it was and my younger boy would have been asking to go home...in the 2nd inning. Progress has definitely been made.
It was Dee Gordon's night as he went 4 for 4 with a walk. The stadium roared watching his almost in-the-park home run (scored as a triple with a run on an error) and speed around the bases. He can really electrify a crowd. This has really been a wonderful season for him so far and I look forward to watching him grow as a player.
Great night of baseball and we can all sleep well :)
