We are now into game six of the 2009 season. One immediate upgrade from last year is apparent. There is now coffee readily available in the dugout during the game. This minor league luxury may seem miniscule; however, it saves me the sometimes long journey into the clubhouse to make my own.
Opening day was cool. Fresno had a ‘flyer over’ during the national anthem. The fans always go wild when some type of fighter jet rips through the air and overpowers whomever is singing the anthem. I enjoyed it.
After Fresno, we shot on up to Sacramento. I heard this team usually has the highest attendance in minor league baseball. I can see why. It’s a nice stadium with a great location and besides the Kings of the NBA, there isn’t any other sporting team around that I know of. I guess it also helps that they have won the league the last two years.
