Friday Night Red Sox game

wife and I came down for the first game of the Red Sox series. We had intended to get there early enough to go through the Hall of Fame and catch batting practice. Oh well the best laid plans...

The HOF was, as always, pretty cool. The new exhibits right now are celebration of 50 years of the Hall of Fame and the Joe Nuxhall tribute.

We went through the entire Hall and only saw a few other people. It was a lot of fun to have it virtually to our selves.

And of course we made the mandatory stops

This was a nice way to remind the bandwagon Boston fans who actually won in 1975.

Then the rains came and canceled batting practice. The HOF is a pretty good place to hang out in a rain storm. Prior to the start of the game Volquez was signing autographs, for a very long time. Very cool.

The future is looking good for the Reds.

Volquez was joined by Bruce and BP signing for the fans. Pretty cool stuff.

The first pitch was thrown out by some old timer

Prior to the start the Mayor was holding court

The Mayor returns to Cincinnati. He would later pick up his 1500th career hit.

and then the batteries died. But what a great game. Despite the threatening weather it was a great game, and a great Reds win.

 

Post game there was enough battery to squeeze out one more photo. It was a long day and I was pretty beat. But it was a good day!!
