A night after our first Indians game of the season, Alan and I took in our first Captains game of the season at Classic Park! Alan received a free ticket to the game through the Captains Reading Program. Alan also got to participate in a pregame parade around the warning track as a reward.
During the parade, Alan ran into Paige and Noah’s cousin Sean from Millridge. He also happened to see his baseball coach and teammate Jake in the ballpark.
We had front row seats in Right Field for the game, but we didn’t stay long, as Alan wanted to have his regular Saturday night sleepover at Grandma Debbie’s house. It was also pretty cold and rainy. But Alan did have time to eat ballpark food – fries, popcorn, and even vanilla ice cream. He also got me a hot dog with his food voucher and three Captains baseballs at the team shop with a merchandise voucher.
Before leaving, Alan took a picture of Skipper, who he had high-fived with earlier during the parade. The Captains went on to beat Kane County 9-3.
