Chico’s in town so it means you can only tell the teams apart by their pants.
Okay, okay, so pub happenings caused me to be a few innings late for the game again. At least I made it, right?
I got to the hallowed grounds of Foothills Stadium just in time to see Matt Kavanaugh rope a single into right. It was 3-2 Calgary over Chico at the time. By the end of the inning, Calgary put a crooked number on the board (a 4 in this case) and built up a 7-2 lead.
I’ve said it before but I’ll repeat it: I love the tradition of the Home Run Bucket. What better way to show your appreciation for a big bomb (a 2-run shot to left by Wilver Perez in this case) than to drop a buck or two a bucket that partly goes to the hero.
It was Western Night at the ballpark. Check out Justin Tellam in a cowboy hat on the Vipertron:
Last but certainly not least, the weather was fantastic at the ballpark. A few sun showers but mostly just sun and this glorious double rainbow.
In the spirit of the double rainbow, here’s a double exposure.
Calgary won again, 14-6 over the Outlaws of Chico. Calgary compiled 19 hits, and there were 31 hits total.
