2nd Annual Summer Ballgame

It's minor league baseball season, so we made the trip to the Storm ballpark in Lake Elsinore with Sage's friend Ben and Makai.

Cool thing about minor league games, DIRT CHEAP TICKETS for really good seats to boot. We sat in the 2nd row, right behind the 66ers dugout for $10, plus it was Family Night so the kids tix were buy-one-get-one-free, free hotdog and soda for the kids, and free parking. Can't beat that!
The funny thing was that Sage and his friends didn't really watch most of the game. They were too busy playing in the Fun Zone with the huge inflatable slides, playing catch, and visiting the gift shop. And the girls who really don't care for baseball sat and watched the entire game.
I had gotten the boys blank baseballs so they can get autographs. So after the game, we went out to where the 66ers (minors for the Dodgers, their favorite team) and got some autographs.
Luckily Ben's dad knew about Charlie Hough, an ex-Dodger pitcher known for his knuckleballs, now a pitching coach for the 66ers. So they made sure they stuck around to meet him.
And he was nice enough to let us take a picture. They were stoked.
