Alan made it back from another vacation (to Vancouver from June 29-July 7) just in time to make today’s Indians game — already the 30th of Alan’s career.
Alan debuted his new Jose Ramirez #11 shirt today at the game. Ramirez — still our favorite following Alan’s Kids Starting Lineup experience last season — has been having another great season. After Alan wore his number today, Ramirez was then named as the American League’s starting third baseman in the All-Star Game for the second consecutive year.
While at the game today, Alan once again opted to stay inside the Kids Clubhouse to play at the train table. This time we brought an old favorite — Percy — from home to use on the table. Alan made some new friends at the train table, as well as at the giant glove just before entering the MVP line for the postgame run. It was a beautiful day for running the bases!
