It was jersey day for our trip to the ballpark today, with Alan wearing Lindor’s #12 and me wearing Miller’s #24.
To make it to the game on time, we had to hurry over to the ballpark from The National Sports Collectors Convention (The NSCC). When we got to the gates, Alan was handed Indians trading cards in honor of the upcoming National Trading Card Day (8/11/18). They complemented Alan’s haul of trading cards for the day quite nicely!
Up in the Kids Clubhouse, Alan practiced his leadership skills by managing the train table for the afternoon. In recent weeks the table had been put in a storage closet due to all the trains having been taken home by kids. However, Alan decided to bring 3 trains from home (Thomas, Percy and a caboose) so that the table could be set up again. He took responsibility for accounting for the trains and rotating them among the kids. He did a great job managing the table! (Note: The Thomas and Percy trains were the same ones that came with him to his very first ballpark visit in 2013).
After the game, Alan continued his Sunday tradition by rounding the bases and touching home. Then we met Robbie and Jill in the stands before heading out. Hopefully it’s not the last time we’ll have a chance to go to a game with them this season!
