Back From Kansas City

We went to see the Royals play Toronto in K.C. on Friday the 10th of August. The Royals lost a close one 2-1 but we had a GREAT time! Here are some of the highlights.

Before the game we went to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum!

Jami posed for a picture by a statue of "Cool Papa" Bell.

A view from our seats (Mark Teahen at the plate)

We bought four tokens to the little "K" and Jami was right in his element. He used two tickets before the game and much later in the night used the remaining two tickets. Would you know after a super nacho and a code red Mountain Dew he came back to hit behind a 12 yr. old who stood in line jawing about how many homeruns he was going to hit. Jami stood in silence just gazing out onto the miniature diamond as if it were a dream come true.
"Have fun Jame, hit that ball out in front of you." is all I said (I don't know if he even heard me) he was in a different world. It was now dark out and he was tired but TWO of his ten hits sailed over the left field fence 90+ feet!

And that kid twice his age????
~Didn't hit one~
Jami just had fun.

Proud of my Slugger! (mini Sweeney)

We were lucky enough to get a foul ball that Royals slugger Billy Butler hit. When we stayed after the game to get autographs he signed the ball and his rookie card!

We ate at George Brett's on Saturday and it was really good! There were a lot of cool artifacts from Brett's carreer there.

Just to the right of Brett's '85 Gold Glove award is the ball from his first hit.

Left of his replica statue outside of the stadium is the ball from his 3,000th hit!

Jami took a picture by the Jersey and bat George used to record his 3,000th hit!
