Just to break up the week of tennis at the Winston-Salem Open (more posts and pictures on that to come!), we decided to take in a minor league baseball game. The Greensboro Grasshoppers (no, I am not kidding) are our local Single-A Florida Marlins affiliate. Yes, Single-A baseball. Quite a treat. The stadium is very nice and the poor kids play hard for the little they get in return.
We do have one other special feature to the Hoppers games and that would be our bat dogs, Yogi Berra and Miss Babe Ruth. The pick up the bats after a hit, they bring fresh balls to the umpire and even deliver a cold bottle of water from time to time. Yogi once even made Sports Illustrated for being ejected from the game for taking a crap on the field. We were quite proud! You can read more about them here.
