Sights From Today’s Marlins/Mariners Afternoon Affair…

Today, we took the kids to the ballpark for some afternoon baseball with the Miami Marlins.  I always try to get to a game early in the season, and this was the first chance we had to get to a game with out hectic Little League and T-Ball schedules.

The weather was beautiful, and hot.  For all of the game that I have attended since Marlins Park opened, this was our first experience of a game with the roof opened.

We sat in ‘our’ seats through the first 5 innings and then moved to higher ground to escape the sun’s rays.  From our seats, located in Row 1 of the second level, we have a nice unobstructed view of the field and are pretty centered between the hitters and the outfielders.

Here is the famous statue in left field.  Sadly, we did not see it in motion today…

And here is the $250 Million Dollar Man, Robinson Cano in the field.

And at the plate.  He had two hits today.

And here is our lead-off hitter, Christian Yelich.  He did not get a hit until the eighth inning, but he ended up scoring the game-tying run on what would be my first experience of ‘Replay’ at a live game.  Yelich has a nice hit-streak going right now and I am hoping that continues tomorrow night when the Marlins are in Atlanta.

And there is my buddy, #27, all the way in right field.  I told the kids that the next time we attend a game I will get seats along the first base side so we can be closer to Giancarlo.

Here he is at the plate.  He did not have a hit today.

And here is a shot from the seats we moved to after the sun was too much for us.  You should have seen their reaction to the ‘review call’ when it was in favor of the Marlins.

What a great afternoon.  It was fun for all of us and Marlins Park is a really enjoyable place to catch a game!

I’m already scanning our schedules for the next time we can get down to the ballpark.
