We got to the park a two hours before the game and while I was excited to find out that Roy Halladay would be pitching that day, I was little disappointed that there was no batting practice. I love batting practice, I love hearing the crack of the bat and I love the crowd of kids trying to get one of the few balls that land on the stands, it is pretty entertaining.
Our seats where in the upper deck by left field and I was really glad that we were under the shade on such a hot day. I really liked out view and for the price we paid, I think we got a great deal. The Twins took an early lead and didn’t let up and won the game 4-1. Roy Halladay pitched 8 decent innings but wasn’t as electric as when I saw him mowing down Nationals in the season opener.
I liked Citizens Bank Park and it provides a lot of food choices that are delicious, I tried the Schmitter from McNally’s and that was amazing and Ashley enjoyed her cheese steak from Tony Luke’s. The fans were really into the game and I got booed a few times for wearing my Strasburg jersey. Talking about Strasburg, we were there for his start against the White Sox on Friday and we are headed to park gain today to see him, I am starting to feel like a groupie but it sure has been worth the money. Next stop are Kansas City next Wednesday and St. Louis next Sunday.
