A nice day for baseball

We took the boys to Philadelphia to see the Phillies play the Miami Marlins on Sunday afternoon. It was pretty hot out, but our seats were fantastic — right next to the foul pole in left field. Unfortunately no home runs came our way, but everyone still had a blast. I wish we lived closer, I’d love to go to more games.

Iron Pigs post-game fireworks

Miranda and I took all of the kids and her mom down to Coca-Cola Park in Allentown for an Iron Pigs game before her mom and the oldest kid head off to the Rock School’s ballet program for the summer. We didn’t realize there were post-game fireworks when we bought the tickets, so that was a nice surprise… especially since the Iron Pigs didn’t play very well.

Red Sox legend Ortiz stable after shooting in DR

From ESPN:

Former Boston Red Sox slugger and Dominican star David Ortiz is out of surgery and doing “fine,” according to his family, after he was shot Sunday at a club in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

Some tragic news out of the Dominican Republic. On the upside, it sounds like he’s going to be ok and has been flown back to Boston for additional treatment.
