Awe...some Mondays - Minor League Baseball play-offs!

The home town minor league team made the Texas league play-offs. They finished in first place at the end of the first half of the season. I love minor league baseball. The best seats in the house are only $13. I don't think you can park at a major league stadium for $13. Okay, Play Ball!

On this night there was some good pitching, and some not so good pitching.

There was a close play and stolen base at second by the visitors in blue.

There was a close play and a triple by the home team.

There was the satisfying "home run trot" by both teams.

There was an attempted "pick-off" at first base.


And there were young men playing a boys game. There's a reason we call them "The Boys of Summer".  Have a blessed day.

Update; The Naturals lost the series to the Tulsa Drillers three games to two. Waiting for spring 2018 and a new season.

  9. Oh yes, there is always next season. I love baseball and minor league ball is a great product. My employer is the naming sponsor for the field so we get half price tickets. Biggest bargain in town as far as I am concerned.
