Today Alan set a new career high by attending his 7th Tribe game of the season (17th overall). All went according to plan: The skies were clear, the temperature was comfortable, and the Tribe won the rubber match with the Blue Jays by a score of 3-2 — thanks to a late 2-run Home Run by Jose Ramirez in the 8th!
Alan played his usual activities inside the clubhouse, then surprised me by asking to watch some of the game. He was mainly interested in seeing the Hot Dog race, but I’ll take it. We caught the whole 5th inning from the Kids Clubhouse viewing deck, before watching Mustard (Alan’s favorite) win today’s race.
Afterwards, Alan went to the family deck to practice hitting, running, and throwing. I took a video of today’s sprint from a new angle.
Then it was time to run the bases and take pictures with Robbie and Jill, who drove down to the ballpark with us. Alan was extra excited to have Robbie and Jill there, and he asked all three of us to run the bases with him. We did our best to keep up, though Alan was ahead of the pack the whole time!
