squeaking by, that is. Baltimore managed to get a run early on in the afternoon game rescheduled from the evening. The As, in spite of multiple opportunities didn’t manage even one measly run. They had more hits. In fact, in the face of no one out, runners on 1st and 3rd – the next three batters up were easily out.
Attendance? I would be surprised if there were even 1000 people at the ballpark. Seriously empty. So sadly empty it was embarrassing. There were Orioles fans present and about the only ones happy. We had perhaps a dozen in the drum section. It would have been more, but the unlucky people who bought front of the bleachers seats for this game discovered that they really didn’t want to sit in the middle of this particularly noisy crowd.
I did mention that the game had been rescheduled from the evening? Shortly after I arrived at the stadium, the sun cho\ose to go under clouds and pretty much stayed there. It was cool, it was windy.
Meanwhile, I hear from a friend in NY who is at a Mets Game. It is cold, it is windy. But this is New York, there is a Kosher for Passover food stand. Don’t think it completely made up for the Mets losing to the Giants but you take your little bits of joy where you can find them.
The good thing about afternoon games is that you are home in time for dinner.
And yes, the skies opened up later in the evening and it rained….
