Take me out to the ball game

Last night we had the opportunity to go to a Durham Bull's game in Durham, NC. They are a Minor League Baseball team, and actually were the 2009 National Champs. It was both of our first times at a Minor League Baseball, although we've been to Major League Baseball games before! (Colorado Rockies of course!)

We went with a group from J's new job and we got to eat dinner in one of the "party zones" before the game. We only had to pay $8 (not each, but all together) and that gave us a great dinner (complete with hotdogs, hamburgers, potato salad, salad, beans, mac n' cheese and all the pop we'd like!) and entry to the game. Steal of a deal right?!?! We're thinking we may try to go to another game this season, even though I don't think we'll get that great of a deal if we go by ourselves.

We had a lot of fun and got to mingle with some of J's co-workers. Here are some pics I took of the game...
The field as they were grooming it. (While we were busy eating dinner.)

So cute. :) We didn't see any balls actually hit this billboard, but it would have been sweet. There was one ball that went out of the park...but it miss this by about a mile.

The rival pitcher. He was good, but fierce. Lots of low pitches.

Panoramic view of the stadium/field.

Durham Bull's pitcher. He was great!

We did have a great time, but we of course were disappointed that the Bulls lost 2-6. :( But, it was a great game still!
