The final score was Tulsa Drillers 3, Springfield Cardinals 0. Go Drillers!
Anthony Jackson, Driller center fielder just as he makes contact with the ball. We had good seats, midway up the stands and just left of home plate. I was able to take a lot of good photos (too many to post) but had the shoot through the big net that protects the fans from foul balls.
We all stand and sing the National Anthem. A little league team is chosen for each game to join the big guys for the opening. There are few things so typical of the USA than a baseball game. If you did not grow up in this country you might not understand it but it is a great game.
There was a good crowd for last night's game. It is a great evening for baseball; warm but with a nice breeze, lots of cold soda and beer, great ballpark food.
Last night (Saturday) was Cancer Survivors Night sponsored by St Francis hospital. Free hamburgers and hot dogs, soft drinks, a t-shirt, and a pair of tickets to the ball game for those of us who have survived cancer surgery and treatment. It is an annual event that I have enjoyed for the past 10 years.
