First time baseball

Last Saturday, I went to see a baseball game for the first time in my life. I went with Manuel from Venezuela and Bernardo from Argentina, to the Angels Stadium in Anaheim to see the Los Angeles Angels-Seatle Mariners game. We went there without tickets, but could find good ones from a dealer in the entrance.

The first thing I saw when coming into the stadium was Ichiro Suzuki warming up. This guy is one of the best players in history and almost a god in Japan! So, it was pretty interesting to see him there! So near!

In USA, sport becomes show... And everybody goes to the stadium to have fun!

Yes, I was there... ;)

Some popcorn to enjoy the movie? :)

Some kid cheering up the local team with a typical #1 hand!

And a close-up on the game! Sometimes, there are so many things going on around you, that you even forget they are still playing!!

The three of us!

There were even fireworks when the local team got a home run. That happened twice during the game.

Finally, Mariners defeated Angels by 9 to 8. But everyone came back home with a smile. It is just the beginning of the regular season anyway!
