I’m exhausted, but I have to quickly share what I did this evening.
I went to my first ever Threshers game. There was this guy playing second base. I think he has a lot of potential. Name is Utley or something.
I’ve wanted to go to a Threshers game for years and my favorite player making a rehab appearance seemed like a good reason to go.
I took a handful of pictures with my iPhone. Most of them aren’t any good, but I ran a couple through Instagram and they aren’t too bad.
Yeah, I pretty much only took pictures of Chase Utley. Don’t judge me. Although I was also really stoked that Jesse Biddle started the game. And I hadn’t known who would be pitching before we got to Bright House Field.
The Threshers game was a great time. And ridiculously cheap. I paid less than $12/ticket (including all fees) for the good seats. It’s such a shame that Threshers games are so poorly attended. But I did learn a valuable lesson tonight: I could’ve purchased the even cheaper berm tickets and still chosen seats behind home plate. I didn’t see a single usher. My mom and I even sat almost exactly behind home plate for the bottom of the eighth inning.
Utley was pulled after the eighth inning, so he never got that last at bat. But he went 2-3 with a home run. And he made a couple of good plays in the field. These are all incredibly encouraging things 🙂
Plus, the Threshers walked it off in the ninth! And not to be outdone, so did the Phillies! In fact, both teams won on walk-off errors. It also marked the first time all season that the Phillies successfully mounted a late-inning comeback. On June 20! But I will take it, I will take it, I will take it.
Crap, it’s late. Must go to bed.
