The month of Baseball

At Bat
This weekend begins the month of baseball. A time when almost every weekend I have tickets to at least one game. Next weekend I’m going to the new QT Park in Grand Prairie to see the AirHogs. I also have tickets to several Frisco RoughRiders games and one of my favorite events the Heroes game on June 28th. I enjoyed going to the Heroes Celebrity Home Run Derby and Game last year and really look forward to the game this year.

Last night kicked off with a game at the Dr. Pepper Ballpark in Frisco to see the perennially great Frisco RoughRiders square off against the Corpus Christi Hooks in the third game of this home series. It was a great game and a close one all the way till the end. Not even into the third inning when the Hooks manager and one of their infielders got tossed from the game.

Game one down and five more to go.

Tuesday night Summer (my sister) and I went to the Stars game at the AAC. I haven’t gone to a Stars game since they were still playing at Reunion so I was really excited when I got some tickets for Christmas. Costco had a Stars package on sale where you got two tickets valued up to 70 dollars and a program all for less than 100 dollars. These were great seats. I have never got the chance to sit down on the plaza level so this was a whole new experience. We sat in row T in the corner at the goal line.

The game was something that you would expect to see in the playoffs not the regular season. Regulation time ended tied up at 2 forcing overtime. After the 5 minute overtime period the score was still tied forcing the shootout. In the first round the Stars scored and the Canucks answered. Not until the sixth round did the Stars score again leaving it up to the Canucks to answer. Go Stars
