|Getting ready for the first pitch|
After dinner the group migrated over to their reserved seats on the 1st base side of the ballpark. The Arkansas Travelers were playing their in-state rivals, the Northwest Arkansas Naturals for 1st place in their division. There was a special treat in that C.J. Wilson, a regular starting pitcher for the L.A. Angels, was on rehab assignment with the Travelers, and was their starting pitcher that evening. After settling in their seats the group enjoyed a good game won by the Travelers, 9 t0 3.
The group was picked up by the buses at the front of the stadium and travelled back to the Village, arriving at about 11:30, tired but treated to a great outing. A good time with good friends.
Many thanks go to event chairman, Buddy Dixon and his wife Martha, for many hours of work, which was made more difficult by our original game in June being rescheduled due to rain.
