Yesterday, we had a company outing to a baseball game at Nat Bailey Stadium (Vancouver Canadians vs. Everett AquaSox). I believe this was the first time I have watched a sports game in person, so it was quite exciting even though it wasn’t MLB.
The first few innings weren’t really interesting with quick outs. Vancouver finally scored a few runs to win the game. Watching in person has its benefits and drawbacks. The benefit is that you get to see everyone on the field, but the drawback is that you’re confined to one viewing angle. The TV definitely offers better angles during the pitch.
This reminded me of when I played baseball many years ago. I played a couple years of little league baseball at the local community centre when I was in grades 2-5. It was both a fun and frustrating time. In my last year, I was the main pitcher on my team and that was definitely fun. It was frustrating because I was a horrible batter.
