I was there for the first 2 games of the Texas series and it was a special time. Work wouldn't let me go for the Thursday afternoon game.
In the second game, he hit a flyball to center that looked off his bat like it might have a chance to go. I'd never heard it so loud in that park then when he hit that flyout to the track in center. It was truely a good time. The Reds wound up sweeping the series, so all was not lost in the quest for 500.
