Joshua decided it would be a great idea to get up on the morning of July 4th and go for a tour of the ballpark because he felt certain it would not be crowded. And he was right! We thought we would be the only ones in our group, but at the last minute another family showed up. But, it was a nice small group!
We all had a great time on the tour and love hearing about the history and architecture of the ballpark. I was surprised at how much Luke really enjoyed hearing all about the ballpark. His favorite bit of information was that the yellow foul polls are from the old ballpark.
Our first stop was the press box.
And then onto a suite.
We all saw a game in a suite a few years back, but Luke was too small to remember it. It was of course, NOT the owner's suite that we were in. :)
Hey! Look who is giving a talk after the game!
Luke loved going down to the hitting cages. He even asked if he could hit a few balls.
Unfortunately, the answer was no. But standing next to them was good enough for him.
A message from Josh Hamilton!
Luke was so excited to go into the dugout.
Luke, who are you looking at?
It was Mitch Moreland! Since he was injured he was not on the road with the team, but here working with the trainer.
Sitting in Washington's seat! (And STILL keeping an eye on Moreland)
And no trip to the dugout would be complete without making a call to the bullpen! And since it was so quiet at the ballpark, we would hear the phone ring all the way on the other side of the field in the bullpen ring.
