Spring Training 2009

This is my 1st Spring training game in 30 years of being a Red Sox fan and it was great fun to be there! Tony rented a house in Ft Myers and we joined him and my mom and dad there for a week.

On Monday March 23rd we all headed out to the City of Palms Park for a Spring Training game between the Red Sox and the Detroit Tigers. Ambiana was excited for the game and wore all her Red Sox gear. Even Colleen donned a Red Sox jersey for the game and promised to say nothing negative about baseball for the duration of the game.

Uncle Tony found us tickets for the game even though it was sold out. He is the sponsor for this trip and we are very grateful to him and are doing our part by cooking all the meals.

Everyone but Varitek and Drew were in the lineup and Brad Penny pitched 3 innings shut-out innings. The Sox hit four home runs in a row in the 6th inning and won the game 7-6.

Ambiana's favorite part was singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the 7th inning stretch!
