Take Me Out to The Ball Game

As I mentioned yesterday, Michael and I (along with our friends, Katie and Keller) went to the Braves game. The funny thing is that we almost didn't go because when looking at the seating guide at Turner Field it looked like we had really bad seats. When we arrived we realized we actually had really good seats-club level seats.

We had such a great time at the game. Foul balls frequented our area. Everyone stood to try to catch them. I, on the other hand, ducked and screamed. No thank you! I have no desire to be near a ball traveling that fast. Needless to say, I did not catch a foul ball. However, our friend, Keller, caught a foul ball, and I had my picture made with it.


Doesn't it totally look like I caught it? Well, maybe not. I am just relieved it didn't hit me in the head. Oh, and please ignore my frosty beverage in the picture. In all the excitement, I forgot to put it down for the picture-not a real classy move on my part.

It sounds like you had a great time. This is a perfect baseballe gam pic because the stadium is in the background, you have a beer in one hand and a baseball in the other. You also look great in this photo!

Just found your blog, sounds like a great time! We're big baseball fans, but it's tough to get a ticket to Fenway w/o spending a small fortune!

Oh fun! I love going to base ballgames, and I too duck from the foul balls :)

Lucky! I love the Braves, but going to the ATL just for a game is hellacious, coming from SC. BASEBALL!

MM, that beer looks yummy! Glad you had a good time, & I totally would have ducked as well - no need to try to catch anything here. I would probably just get hit in the face, ha!

Amanda said...

Can I say that the beer looks good. I am really wanting one and can not wait to have one either. I also can not wait to go to a Braves game this year. Love Turner Field and the Braves. You look great too.

I love the Braves! We are hoping to drive over from Charleston for a game or two this season. And pics with frosty bevs are totally acceptable since you're in a ballpark:)

Brittney said...

Aw, I love Braves games!

Terri said...

Oh my goodness, you crack me up! I have a picture in my head of you ducking and screaming! And just FYI...you are, and always will be a very classy lady! Even if you are enjoying a "frosty beverage". Hey...at least you aren't drinking it from the can! ;)

Casey said...

Gleatie said...

OK, that used to be my DREAM in life to catch a foul ball! I thought that I would catch it gracefully and everyone around me would cheer! In real like I always duck too! Those things can break your hand for god sake! :) Barry Bonds hit a homerun in Turner Field a few years back and it nailed my brother in the leg! Talk about a bruise! Aren't they losing speed by then! I'm jealous of your outing!

How fun! I wish I lived close enough to a major league team to go! Atlanta requires at least an overnight trip :-(
