We have now visited 77% of the MLB parks. We went to Target Field to see the Twins play the Phillies. The field opened in 2010 and, in the same year, ESPN The Magazine ranked it as the #1 baseball stadium experience in North America. Unfortunately for the home baseball teams on this trip, we have become a jinx. The Twins lost 7 to 3. Good thing this is our last game for a while.
One thing we have really enjoyed on this trip is seeing all the families that are camping everywhere we go. The kids are not watching tv; they are hiking, riding bikes, playing with other kids. The families sit around the fire at night and no one is staring at a cell phone. It is heart warming and reminds us of when we took our kids camping.
Oops, almost forgot. Was the baserunner safe or out, and who won the race between the characters in the last picture? We worked hard to get the pictures at first base. Don would focus on first base, and Leslie watched the pitcher and said “Going to first” whenever the pitcher was trying to pick the runner off or “Nope” when he threw to home. Teamwork!
