saturday afternoon baseball

Today we went to see the Florida Marlins play the Atlanta Braves.

As a dyed-in the-wool Yankees fan, it was hard at first to think of going to a ballgame with no Yankees involved, but it turned out that there were some appearances by ex-Yanks . . .

The kid had a great time, documenting the impending rain clouds.

Maybe not so great a time after the rain actually showed up . . .

The Marlins almost blew a 6-0 lead by letting the Braves tie it up and walking home two runs. All looked bleak as the game headed into extra innings and then got bleaker after one player got beaned by a foul ball while on deck. But two hits later the Marlins finally won the game. Such high drama—it was almost like a Yankee game after all.
