Yesterday evening was the perfect day for a ballgame, especially knowing that I was going to have to work most of today (besides, there was rain yesterday). So it was time to head north to the city and ballpark. Curtis Granderson, the Detroit centerfielder was back in the minors for a little bit of rehab. He’d broken a finger back at the beginning of spring break and they wanted him to get some playing in before he returns to the majors. It was the perfect night for a ballgame, the temperature at the singing of the national anthem was in the upper 70s. The sky was clear. A nearly full moon rose over the east side of the park, rising between two poles of lights. The game was good, but the West Michigan Whitecaps lost to the Burlington Bees, 3-0, in front of a sellout crowd. The good weather and Granderson really brought the folks out to see Single-A baseball. Granderson did get two hits—a hustling infield single and a nice triple. Photo of a maple not quite ready to bud out was shot on Thursday morning.
On an entirely different subject, now that it is spring, Murf has found what she thinks is the perfect winter covering for my bald head (I'm with good company 'cause her husband's head is also bald and we're both Steeler fans). Check it out.
