2014 Delk Annual Baseball Trip - Day 2

Hello again everyone. Day 2 is in the books and Isaac has taken over again. We left La Grange, KY this morning and made it to Akron, OH. We watched the Rubberducks and the Reading Fightin' Phils play today. It was a day game but it was beautiful. Just enough clouds to make the sun not as bad. The Rubberducks lost 3-0 and Andy was telling every usher he could find that he was "So Mad!! that the Akron Rubberducks were losing."

We scored another ball. The catcher for the Fightin' Phils, Lars Davis, gave us the strikeout ball that ended the first inning. Bryan LaHair was the batter.

Well we tried to go to church but the one Daddy had picked out in Kent was closed. So we ended up eating dinner at DQ and happened to bump into not only one but two couples from the church in surrounding areas. We found out that the church we had planned was now defunct because of eminent domain. Seems the city is using the land to build an upscale housing development. Funny but it was nice to meet two couples in Akron that were members of the church of Christ.

Anyway enough about that. I know that people out there want to see pictures so here goes.

 Here is Andy and I when we went on our walk around.
 Did I mention we got to run the bases? We got to run the bases. Here we are in line waiting to go on the field.
 Here I am rounding second. I got to say my name really loud on the PA system and the camera man got me on the big screen. It was awesome!
 Here is Andy outside the gate when we were getting ready to leave.
And this is beautiful Canal Park. This ballpark was really awesome and is a cool place to watch a game.
