Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

I am a HUGE baseball fan. Mostly minor league, because I grew up with a popular stadium across the river that is no more (Rosenblatt, may she rest in peace). It used to be a fifteen minute drive to see a baseball game, but now it's about half an hour. We didn't get out to many games this season. In fact, I only got to this one game. But it was stunningly beautiful outside, we got wider seats in the shade, and the game was really exciting!

The first homerun of the game!

So far away!

There's a Family Fun area with a playground and carousel

Even Further Still!

Who sits back here?!
This is our new field, Werner Park. It's considerably smaller than Rosenblatt, which closed in 2010, but I think the layout is fantastic. It's not too big (I find Major League stadiums too big), so I can keep track of what's going on in the game while going to the bathroom, or getting a funnel cake. It's nice and breezy, and where we sat, there was no sun, so it was all nice and cool.

Our team is the Omaha Storm Chasers, and the game was VERY exciting today. So many runs, lots of pop up balls, foul balls, line drives, plus at least two home runs. It was awesome!

Mom and I are talking about getting season tickets for next year. They got them my senior year of college, and I was able to go to several games with them that summer. I love baseball. It's one of the few sports I love. I'm an artsy girl, but I love me some baseball. I get it from my mom.

Farewell, Storm Chasers! Until Next Year!
