Salem Red Sox Baseball Game

Here are Bruce and I waiting for the baseball game between the Salem Red Sox and the Myrtle Beach Pelicans to begin. Both teams are in the single-A farm team system. The Salem team plays in a wonderful baseball stadium less than 2 miles from where we are staying at Salem Village. This stadium is just as well done as the major league team stadiums...just smaller. We enjoyed nice seats behind home plate and they were only $8 a piece. Such a deal! We enjoyed a hot dog, too. You can't go to a ballgame and not get a hot dog.

Speaking of dogs, this character behind Bruce is Mugsy, the team's mascot. He is a funny guy that enjoys cruising through the stadium posing for pictures and being playful with the kids in attendance. I had taken several photos of Mugsy and the stadium, but being technically challenged I somehow made them all disappear. Gail allowed me to download 3 of her photos for this posting. Thank you, Gail.

Here are Rick, Gail, me and Bruce waiting for the game to begin.

Unfortunately, it wasn't the best day for the home team and they lost to the Pelicans. We had fun anyway and it was a warm night just perfect for the game.

Batter Up !!
