Baseball season is in full swing, and so I wanted to post a picture for the season. Last September, my wife and I went to a Kansas City Royal’s game with a few of our friends. That night (for those of you in the know) was Zack Greinke’s first game back pitching at Kauffman Stadium. The Royals were facing the Angels, and it was bound to be a great game. In the bottom of the 9th, Royals were down 3-1, with one man on and Butler coming to the plate. The Angels pulled Greinke, and their reliever came in to close out the game. On his second pitch, Butler cranked a two-run homer to center field, which tied up the game. The next batter was our catcher, Salvador Perez, who (on his first pitch) crushed the ball off of the left field pole for his first walk-off home run of his career. Hope you enjoy this picture of Perez in the pre-game warm ups for the pitcher.
Bird’s Eye View of the Bullpen
I love the cold and the snow. But now that we’ve had a couple of big snows and the weather man is predicting weather in the 60s by the end of the week, my thoughts have turned towards outdoor activities, namely golf. I am ready for some shorts and short-sleeved-shirt weather, along with hitting the links with my friends. Hope you enjoy the photo for today!
Down the Fairway
One thing I love about Baseball – connection with the people. September 15, 2012, the Kansas City Royals celebrated Armed Forces day in a way to celebrate and give honor to those who have served our country in the military. I will be the first to admit that I never served in our military, but I respect those who have made that sacrifice to protect freedoms, wherever they are. They give a great deal, sometimes even their lives, in protecting those that cannot able to protect themselves. One thing they did this year was to bring this young man home to his fiancé for this occasion. He ran in from the bullpen, she was at home plate. They met just on the edge of the infield. It was quite the special moment, and I thought I would share with you all.
Surprise Reunion at the K
So I went and played in a golf tournament today in Kansas City at The Deuce at the National with some of my coworkers. Because the weather was picture perfect, I decided I should take my camera. Turns out, it WAS picture perfect! I took a lot of pictures, but this reflection of my buddy Bob getting ready to tee off was too good to pass up. Hope you all enjoy!
Keep your eye on the ball, Bob
