If you recall, last March I was able to score some free tickets to a Reading Phillies game after meeting a gentleman while waiting in line to get into the Ephrata Rec Center Show I attend each year.  Well, Father’s Day was the time to cash in those tickets.  The seats were great!  Three rows behind home-plate.  If I was any closer, they could have asked me to play 🙂  I had never gone to see the Reading Phillies before.  The stadium has a lot of history, but comes with a modern feel.  Reading’s pitcher Julio Rodriguez had a no-hitter through 5 innings.  In the end, Reading won 4-2.  I picked up a team set and three new pins for my collection.  They were giving away Richie Ashburn style hats.

Harrisburg Senators vs. Akron Aeros – 7/17/11: Harper Watch!

I got to see Bryce Harper and the Harrisburg Senators take on the Akron Aeros last night.  The Senators won 9-7 on a couple of 4 run innings.  The first 1,000 fans through the gate received a Cliff Floyd bobblehead.  It was a night filled with hot dogs and Harper.  Could it really get any better?
