And, indeed it was. It was mostly a fielder’s game, which I find a lot more interesting than a pitching battle – and it was interesting pretty much from the moment it began, kicking off with some early inning broken bats and a stolen base, on to an amazing catch by the Sox mid-game, to the final almost-as-awesome-but-better-because-it- was-the-game-winning catch by the Twins that wrapped things up.
It was a blast to see the Twins win, but I hope the Soxman (yes, the Soxman) enjoyed the game too – he added a bit of humor to my evening and his team provided a challenge for the Twins so I didn’t need to worry about getting bored by the 7th inning. (Which has been known to happen.)
Better luck next time, Soxman, and come back next year when the Twins are playing in their fancy new outdoor stadium!
