An Evening at a Minor League Ballgame.
America's favorite pass-time is not spent on a gridiron on a Sunday afternoon, but on diamonds with games any day of the week and in sets of 3 or 4. Such is the case in New Britain CT, where the Rock Cats play. The New Britain Rock Cats are a Double A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, or at least for another month.
The team is relocating to Hartford CT Next year and most likely will have a new affiliate as well as it was announced that the contract with Minnesota will also end this year. We have been to a few games this year, as our youngest grandson, Raphael so much enjoys the game.
His enthusiasm is also contagious as his cheering for the home team gets noticed by all around him as well, and they are soon joining him with his chants. On this night he was in rare form, especially with the home team scoring 3 runs in the first inning against the Portland, ME Sea Dogs, a Boston Red Sox affiliate
Minor League ball games are so entertaining. Between innings there are all manor of diversions, such as racing coffee cups from Dunkin Donuts, or making a cheese burger between 2 groups of challengers; the game of removable the chairs with a Mascot, which is how Raphael won the vouchers that brought us to this last game.
Next year will be a lot of firsts as the team will be Yard Goats, and it will be with a new affiliate, in a new park. Hopefully the fun will be the same or better.
