A Hit

Sunday was Marks birthday and like I mentioned in a previous post, instead of having a party with a bunch of people, he wanted to go to a Nationals Game with one of his best friends.

Even though the Nats lost, we all had a really good time.

First, we got there early enough to get the free kids batting helmets and an autograph. Number 32 is (c) Jamie Burke

This is the line of fans waiting for autographs.

I especially like this shot of the line because if you look towards the top left corner, well, that is real close to where our seats were. They were up on the second level and under cover from which ever ol' man weather decided to throw at us.
And believe me, Sunday had both a little rain and hot sun.

Sundays game started out with both teams getting a lead off double and advancing the runner via a sacrifice bunt and then scoring run run off of either another sacrifice hit or single.

After that we had a bit of everything.

A tornado warning.
A Thunder and Lightning Storm.
A close game which with the Nationals leading 2 - 1 going into the ninth inning.
The Nationals allowing 3 runs in the ninth.
The Nationals coming back to tie the game with 2 more runs to send the game into extra innings.
Finally, loosing 4 - 5 with two men on, two outs, and the count going 3 and 2.

Oh and this guy who combined his two passions of music and baseball to create and play the Electric "Batolin" Slugger.

All in all, it was a big hit.
