That night we went to the Cincinnati Reds game for a couple of reasons: 1. I’ve never been to their ballpark and I think it would be fun to visit every ML ballpark. 2. They were playing the Cardinals and I was hoping to see DeRosa, and 3. The tickets were $10 each – which included a free Reds cap for each of us. I mean, seriously, how can you pass that up??
There were also animals from the Cincinnati Zoo there – including an eagle who flew down to the pitcher’s mound, parachutists from nearby Ft Mitchell and one of the best fireworks shows we’ve ever seen. Definitely a fun night for all of us.
How can you not like Albert Pujols? Unfortunately, I can’t cheer for him on a regular basis – because usually his great hitting comes against my team. But this night? When he stepped up to the plate, bases loaded? It was magic – you just knew that Grand Slam was coming.
