My friend Rob, who knows people connected to the Springfield Cardinals, hooked us up with some tickets Friday night. Great seats, second level, all the soft drinks and hot dogs you wanted and it was Fireworks Friday, so we had fireworks.
We did not have, however, a ball game as this image from the web site testifies. I did take some photos and maybe I'll get some up soon.
The local Cardinals are headed to postseason play in a few days - the parent club is deciding whether or not to push for big boy playoffs. I think they are close enough to give it a try and they should make up their minds soon.
