Columbus – June 2018 – Hot Baseball

It’s literally 100 degrees (38c) and humid so what should we do, go to a baseball game. So some decisions are dumber than others, but we lasted about 2 hours and gave up (although we found seats in the shade).

It did provide enough time for some views of the game and the crowd.

It was time to play.

Dad is a great role model for the  little ones – what most people consider an insensitive hat and a shirt asking for beer with the baby on his lap – sitting in the sun on this hot day. The kid of the left’s face says it all.

Swing and a miss.

The play was sketchy at times, there were 4 credited errors in the first 3 innings.

Although there were some good plays too.

An Indianapolis player launched a massive home run into the bleachers, which the guy in the pink shirt clearly does not want to catch.

Nor do the stunned little kids (or anyone around them)

Jake the Wonder dog brought drinks to the umpires.

While the manager is trying to figure out how to get through to his pitcher.

What brings the crowd to their feet – free t shirt toss!

Why is it when a pitcher is doing so poorly he gets pulled, yet they always pat them on the butt?

The players look at the fans taking cover from a foul ball wondering why.

Finally the 4th inning was over and we gave up and went to the air conditioned car.
