Last night was Calvin’s first Royals game. He loves baseball, but was frankly more interested in the “TVs” (scoreboard/Crown Vision), “guy playing guitar” (the Garth Brooks Friends in Low Places sing-along — klassy) and “hot dogs!”
On our way into the stadium, we made sure to get a picture of the legacy brick that my sister, mom and I got my dad for Father’s Day.
And had great seats for next-to-nothing thanks to StubHub (the Royals’ record and the heat might have had something to do with that).
About halfway through the first inning, Calvin was ready to go walk around, so once it finally ended after six runs (yay!), we headed to the Outfield Experience to check out the kids activities and the fountains (it was 94 degrees at game time, with no breeze). We got back to our seats toward the end of the Cleveland Indians’ rally, which tied the game 6-6.
Calvin got to hear Take Me Out to the Ballgame (one of his favorite songs!) during the seventh inning stretch, at which point it was time to call it a night. So while we missed the walk-off hit that won the game for the Royals in the bottom of the 11th, it was still a memorable evening for us.
Have a great weekend!
