On a whim and a priceline bid, my son and I took off for Toronto yesterday and hit the Jays-Angels game today. Not a spectacular game - though Escobar pitched well, nice shot by Salmon - but what a great day.
Toronto does a great job involving kids in the game - Saturday is kids day...one kid got to be the stadium announcer for an inning, all 14 and under were invited to run the bases after the game, each jay had a kid with him at his position dueing the anthems, also sung by kids. Not to mention they discount a kid's ticket 20%. Nice crowd, about 30K and they were into the game.
Yes, it was cold and the roof was closed, but I just couldnt pick a better way to spend an afternoon with the boy. Looking forward to Detroit in two weeks.
