Take me out to the ball game

April 8, 2013

If you ask any of my friends what is my least favorite sport to watch, they will all instantly say baseball. However, with the brand new baseball stadium that opened this season, I decided to give baseball another shot! I have now been to three games and I can say that I actually have really enjoyed myself!! The best game out of all three was hands down the Liberty vs. Army game and to say that it was cold outside was an understatement. Towards the middle of the game our hands and feet were getting numb but we just couldn’t leave because the game was so close!

The beautiful new stadium 

I’m going to try to explain it in my limited baseball terms knowledge but it was such a fabulous game! By the end of the 9th inning, the score was tied which then brought the game into the 10th inning. After the 10th inning, neither team had scored. Not even my friends who had a good knowledge of baseball knew what was going to happen. Apparently they just keep playing until someone scores, so finally in the next inning Liberty scored and won!!! It was seriously one of the most intense games I’ve ever seen! So this is a shout out to the Liberty baseball team for helping this girl finally find an appreciation for baseball! If you get the chance, definitely head out to one of the games this season (especially when it warms up!).

Freezing with my friends Jake and Drew 

This past weekend we were able to go to the UVA vs. Liberty home game and had a blast. Although Liberty lost, it was so neat to see SO many people come out to support both teams. I’m excited to have another sport that I understand (somewhat) and enjoy watching!
