My First Trip To Great American Ballpark

Today I went to CIncinnati with my Daddy and my Geike to see the Pirates play the Reds. It was my fifth Major League ballpark. Daddy said it should be named the “Sorta Okay American Ballpark.” I’m not sure what that means, but I had fun and the Pirates won, 7-6.

Andrew McCutcheon and Jose Tabata hit back-to-back home runs to start the game, but we didn’t see them! We got to our seats after it was already 3-0, Pittsburgh. But we saw Garret Jones homer and the Pirates come back after the Reds tied it 5-5 and again 6-6 to win. I bought a Reds baseball for my souvenir. I’ve got a lot of stickers already and wanted something different.

Oh … I almost forgot. I’ve been to see the Pirates four times so far. And in those games, they are 4-0!

Busch Stadium Makes MLB Park No. 4 For Me!

Daddy took me to St. Louis to see the Pirates and Cardinals on Wednesday. Pittsburgh won, 3-1, and Neil Walker hit a home run off Chris Carpenter. Ryan Doumit, my favorite player, drove in a run, too. So far when I’m in the crowd, Pittsburgh is 3-0!

It was my first time at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, too. That makes three Major League parks I’ve been to now: PNC Park, Citi Field (Mets) and Camden Yards (Orioles) are the others. 

We went with Daddy’s friend Aaron and his sons Jackson and Trey. We had a lot of fun together but got in trouble with the ushers for leaning over the railing too much. We were on the front row of the second deck. It made the ushers nervous. 

I think St. Louis was more fun because Jackson and Trey were there. It was also the first time I sat through a whole, 9-inning game and only had to go to the bathroom once!
