On Friday, April 11, Tony and I went to a San Francisco Giants baseball game at AT&T Park in San Francisco. I would say I enjoy baseball when I see I game. But, my husband LOVES baseball! When I first met him, besides his regular job, he owned his own baseball card business. He still participates in two (I think that is it) fantasy leagues. When a co-worker had a group of tickets for sale he asked me if it was okay to get them. Of course I said yes because I know it brings him such enjoyment – and it helps me when I want a crafty thing.
So, last Friday night we headed up to the game. We live in Gilroy, which is about 1 1/2 hours away (on a good day) from the ball park. I had never been to this new ball park. It sits in a stunning location right on San Francisco Bay. When home runs are hit over center field, the balls will land in McCovey Cove. It is common to see boats and kayaks parked in the water just waiting for a ball to come their way.
The Giants were welcoming their fans to Orange Friday. The park was filled with a sea of orange and black. Tony and I walked around the whole stadium before taking our seats. It was a beautiful evening, although as the night came, it was chilly. As we watched batters come up to the plate to take their turn at smashing the ball, Tony filled me in on their stats and if he had them on one of his teams. The game got exciting when the Giants had the bases loaded. Even I knew there was a possibility of a grand slam – that’s when the bases are loaded and a home run is hit with four runs scoring. The pitcher came up to bat. Tony told me traditionally pitchers are not the best batters. But, it was my lucky night – the pitcher hit a GRAND SLAM! It was so exciting to be a part of this moment in time. The Giants won the game with an ending score of 6-5.
It was such a fun date night! I got to have fun with my husband and what he loves! I took pictures – which I love to do. And, I had a yummy drink and some delicious food.
I have to admit that it did cross my mind, what Blueprints, challenges, and digital content I might use to highlight my photos. So, for my blog layout I used a new Blueprint called Open Grid! There will probably be another layout or two to feature the fun we had. What Blueprints would you use for baseball pictures?
