To Be Six, If Only For A Minute

So I mentioned previously about The Champ being invited by his friend Nate to the Red Sox game this past Saturday. Well, the game turned out great with an 11-3 win. The weather was a little hot but Nate's mom & I kept the kids cool with water & Italian ices.

At $3.75 a piece. Ouch!

We sat farther up the third base line the I had thought but we were only 10-15 rows from the field. Until you are practically sitting under a home run hit by Manny, you can't get the true feeling of how quickly the ball leaves the park.

As the game ended and our great day at the park seemed to be coming to and end as well, the announcer invited anybody under the age of sixteen the chance to run the bases.

Follow the blue #10.

How cool was that!

To think he didn't even realize who else has touched those same bases over the last 100 or so years.

Is there anything better for a little boy to be doing on a summer day?
I think not.

Why the hell is it that this makes me cry? Yes, imagine who has touched those bases AND I don't even like baseball but ... The beauty of kids being involved in those things larger than us...the beauty in them not being overwhelmed by celebrity and history. Ah man, I must be PMSing, but then you didn't want to know that did you...

That's pretty cool...even though it is in Fenway. I think they change the bags every once in a while, by the way. :)
