Play Ball!

Another temperature record setting day here in Florida, as it got way up to the high 80's again, setting temperature records again! It has been a hard winter in Florida if you like snow!

We took life easy this morning, and enjoyed breakfast with Deb and Gerard. By 11:00 we were on the road to Lakeland to catch the Ball Game.

We had great seats up in the very last row of Joker Marchant Stadium, and it was a good thing we had that roof above us, to keep the sun off of us!

You can spend $10.00 for a ticket and sit out in left field on the berm... love the palm trees out there...

The Stadium was full, not sure how man people in attendance, but there were quite a few... above is our view of the home plate area!

Yes, the score was 10 to 3 for the Blue Jays at this point in the game, as Lance Zawadzki had just hit a grand slam home run!

The fans were loving it!

Debbie was our guest photographer today with a bunch of great camera shots with her fancy camera.

Above is Prince Fielder for Detroit, who just hit a hommer...

This was an autograph frenzy, but I think Gerard lost out... good time had by all.

We made it home and enjoyed supper, and then Deb and Judy went down to music night in our Club House, while Gerard and I watched the Leaf's lose to Ottawa tonight on the TV.

Yup, sure was a sports day!

Till tomorrow...



  1. It was quite a sports day....and one truly enjoyed. Hard to beat that kind of fun day, John!

  2. Another wonderful day in the Florida shade, too much fun.

  3. Well, at least the Blue Jays won!

    I wonder how many of those fans at the game were Canadians?
