the ball game


So I’ve lived in GJ since 1989. I was in 2nd grade when we moved here. And I have never been to a JUCO game. JUCO is kind of a big deal around these parts. It’s the Junior College World Series and our little city has been it’s host for over 50 years.

I remember when I was in high school, the halls would be empty the last week of school because everyone was ditching for JUCO. I don’t know whether the school district got smart and arranged the school schedule around JUCO or if JUCO changed to accommodate the school district. All I know is that school is now out whenever JUCO is in.

I’ve never been to a game, until last week that is. I’ve wanted to go for the last couple of years, but not enough to make it happen. So this year, the kids and I had a plan and we were determined to go. Carrie happened to come home from her great US adventure a little early so she was able to come with us too. Our friend Troy is a JUCO diehard so we sat with him and Danielle and Becky in the very special O section.

The kids had a blast and I got such a kick out of watching them cheer at every home run. I have to admit that I actually really enjoyed the game too. I think out of all the sports I dislike, baseball would be the one I dislike the least. (ssshhh, don’t tell anyone.)

Next year we plan to buy a pass for every game so we can really live up the week of baseball.

    the only way I like to watch baseball is live and in person, and preferably a minor league or underdog pro team. it’s so much more exciting! plus the minors have affordable stadium food. Do they sell WATERMELON there?! that’s amazing!
