Military Day at the Ball Park

March 25th, 2012

3-25-12It’s a beautiful day for a baseball game, I think I’ll go to one.
Surprise is a great Spring Training town and it is the spring home to the Rangers and the Royals. Today the Royals played the Brewers. More importantly, it was Military Day at the park. The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes was the perfect means to ride up to this park today. I arrived early and positioned myself where everyone was able to walk right by and see the signs.
More than half the crowd at the game today was either active or retired military or a relative. I tried to talk the people in the front office into letting me ride The Kindness Bicycle around the field during the seventh inning stretch. As it turned out I wasn’t able to stay at the game. The weather was just a bit too warm to stay out any length of time. Bogart can’t stay on The Kindness Bus when it is full sunshine and the temperature is too high.
Bogart was a huge hit as I walked him all over town in the shade of the trees. He was hotter than the weather.
Oh by the way, the score was Brewers 7  Royals 3.
