2 outta 3 ain’t bad….but those Dodgers road- game 72

Gamer babes hoping for sweep surround Bert

After 106 pitches in 6 inning what can a manager do? The game was far from being decided and the relievers didn’t have it- 3 tried in the 7th to no avail. So it was with the offense as well. So a sweep- always a tough outcome, no matter who is playing- is unusual.
I guess we should not be surprised, when you only need to win 60% of your games to lead a division with 97 wins. So it is that baseball is a unique sport at the pro level. Do not despair.
These Tigers fans knew the game and spoke with us for about an hour before we headed to the game.

And now for the ladies view- We met baseball junkies at the Hilton Garden Inn and spent an hour swapping baseball stories before heading to the stadium.

Sitting behind home plate is a rare experience, and despite being a sports junkie I have managed it twice, once from our banker, and yesterday from the generosity of two Giants fans we had not met until after they gave us tickets in the front row behind home plate.

This was our view watching batting practice.

Rick and Rene gave Bert an experience he had never had. He commented that it was a totally different experience to watch a game from that perspective. For me it made 1st base seem so much further from the plate. While waiting for the game to begin we met a fellow road warrior who had driven from Ohio to see the game. She will be going to games in AZ,SD, and LA

We met Eric who was security who gave Bert his Tigers “D” pin for his cap. He asked about a friend he knew from Giants security, but lucky for us we behave and have never met any of the Giants security staff.

We got this pic from someone who saw me on TV while we were at the game.

And of course everything is better when you are in great seats including the food.

I had the chicken shawarma and Bert opted for corn beef. We both enjoyed them, but trying to score and eat something as messy as a shawarma was challenging, and chicken kept falling on my score book.

This is Paws the Tigers mascot. He/she seemed friendly and kids liked him/her.

What game would be complete without a photo of our favorite players? Buster is Bert’s favorite because he doesn’t have an inflated ego, is a team player, and he is good in the club house. I like Hunter because he isn’t afraid to do things his own way, he has an incredible work ethic, and he is a bit old school with his pants.

Bert and I continue to be amazed that anyone follows our adventure. I am especially amazed that someone my daughters age thinks what we are doing is cool.

My summary of Comerica is that it is a better than average ball park. It is a shame we had the bad experience the 1st day and guest services didn’t make it right, so i would say if you can afford great seats book them since the level of service is higher. Unique features such as the Tiger carousel and the baseball ride make this park a must visit. The lack of a true club level make it not in the same set as AT&T or PNC in Pittsburgh.
Until,
Bert and Le Anne
